Hello and happy Monday! (Yes, you can have a happy Monday…they do exist!)
After spending the weekend with my girlfriends and completely away from the computer (oh, how nice a break feels!), I am back at work today writing or finishing up some articles due for a few different publications, cracking the whip on my homeschooler, and cleaning house.
One of the articles I am finishing up is for Homeschool Mosaics, where I write a monthly column on photography. Did you get a chance to check out last month’s column, regarding taking great Back To School photos? You can check it out HERE. This month’s topic will be all about photography books. Of course, I will link back to it when it goes live, so be sure to check back!
I am also writing a few book reviews today, one fiction, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and one non-fiction, Called Again by Jennifer Pharr Davis. Both of these books spoke to me in an incredible way, in a time where I needed the inspirational lift. My take-away for both deal with marriage and pushing through the bad times for something you know is worth it. Even though I often am surprised at how much something speaks to me, how very close to home somethings hit, I know that His perfect timing means that when I feel this way, it is because I am supposed to. There are no coincidences and I truly believe that when you need a message, God will give it to you. Be sure to check back for my review on each book, they were both great reads!
Lastly, on my first Mixed Up Monday post, I want to share a few sites where we have received some fantastic FREE homeschool curriculum items. All the sites I am sharing today highlight science. We love, love, LOVE science here, so getting all of this for nothing, nada, zip, zilch was icing on the science cake!
The first is from Nutrients for Life which is great for Life Science studies. They have items for elementary all the way through high school and the quality is fantastic.

Another site I recently got a package from was National Physics Laboratory. Another site packed with science and math, I received a package of posters to hang on our schoolroom walls. The site is also full of PDFs, Factsheets and more.

Like I said, all of these were free, including the shipping (shipping was fast on all of them, too…less than 10 days from order to delivery on each). If you are looking for some additional science products for your homeschool, be sure to check these out.
