The 2015 crew year has come to an end. This year has really gone by so very fast. We had some really amazing curriculum to try this year. A couple of them we have reviewed before but many of them are new. I absolutely love reviewing the products because it gives me a chance to try them out before I buy them. I have found many different things that have worked for both of the kids that we still continue to use. I want to take the time to share some of my favorites from this review year.
It’s been a while since I have update and some good things are about to happen with the Autism side of things. Dakota has been on a waiting list for a children’s waiver since June we finally got a call to let us know he no longer on the waiting list. My case manager came out and we did another functional screening. We created a plan and that plan is to have him go to an after school group 5 days a week and 3 hours a day. However, that might have to be changed to 4 days a week as he goes to Youth Group on Wednesdays. We are also going to get help with living skills and he will have a mentor. This is all just to start. So that is good news. He will finally start getting the help that he needs.
A couple months ago I started a bible study at church. I recently found out there was such thing as a journaling bible. I was really excited to have the chance to review an ESV Journaling Bible from Crossway. It has really come in handy for my notes and my thoughts.
The ESV Journaling Bible comes in a nice little box to store it in. The bible itself has a nice soft blue flora design. The covers remind me of a regular journal and it is absolutely beautiful. You have two-inch ruled margins for writing observations, references, thoughts, prayers, praises, notes, and whatever else suits your fancy. It really is a long lasting keepsake and great for going back on to reflecting of what you have written.
One of the most important things in our home school has been Bible Studies. We have really started working on them this year and I have been searching for one that easy and for one that my daughter would enjoy. Old Testament 1: Level 1 Creation to Jacob is by Grapevine Studies and I found this Bible Study to be very unique.
