Favorite Places to Visit on the Internet

Blogging time here has become minimal due to life going in fast forward.  Seriously, why does it go faster as the kids get older?


Speaking of kids...we've found a few websites that we've enjoyed in homeschooling this year.  Maybe you know of them or want to check them out.

Scratch - The kids have been learning computer coding this year.  We started with Scratch and they loved it.  They even request to use it during non-school hours.  We have now moved on to Python, but Scratch was a great place to start.

Code - The kids also love Code.org.  They started with an Hour of Code.  The boy loves the Minecraft version and the girl loves the Frozen version.  Again, they request this during non-school hours too.

Kindle Scout - I've just recently discovered this.  You get to nominate up to 3 books at a time.  If the book you nominated is published, you get it for free.  The books are up for 30 days, so you can have a rotating list of books that you are nominating.  So far I'm at 0% for the books I have nominated that have been chosen to be published by Kindle.  Hopefully someone will get published!  But most of the authors have self-published on Amazon, so that's great.  You just need an Amazon account to be able to nominate books.  Check it out!

Where have you been cruising too on the Internet lately?

That's all I've got for today.  Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Good afternoon. Just wanted to stop and say hi. Found your blog while looking up broken legs/casts. Our 4yo broke his. Your son broke his almost exactly like ours did. I too have homeschooled. I will check out the links you provided above as they sound like a good fit for our kids. Have a great day. When you get a minute maybe stop by my blog. Thanks. https://theycallmemomweb.wordpress.com

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope your son heals quickly. My son is now 12 and you'd never know he broke his leg. I'll pop on over to your blog. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it. Comments will be moderated eventually. Computer use only occurs when kiddos are asleep or otherwise occupied. Thanks for your patience.
