So it's been a busy week with the mail and arrivals!
We received our new Ipad mini! We finally had to give in..While we love our kindles, the apple devices just have way more available for quality educational apps for the kids. We have our older ipods but some of the stuff we really, REALLY wanted were for Ipad only. The girls are all excited since they will each have their own kindles and will get to "share" the ipad with me. We are looking forward to seeing what all we can find for the ipad!
In other news. I also received these...
It looks like a really nice program, if you are completely secular and don't want ANY thing that mentions bible, etc. than you might want to stay away from them. The program looks a little pricey, but if your really wanting something like this it does look like an excellent program. I am curious to see the Critical Thinking Company's Word Root series link here..http://www.criticalthinking.com/word-roots.html We actually talk about some of the word roots already so the girls might find that more interesting at their age. I've had several people say they really like Critical Thinking Co. stuff, so I'm hoping to try some out this year.
This week one of my new consultants got their big kit and I got a chance to look through some more of the books! What a treat! (Yes, I'm a book nerd and happy to admit it!)
Also in the kit are some fun reading books for infants to highschoolers. I'm going to order some of the "not my" series of books for Dominic. They are fun touch books and pretty darn cute.
Also in the mail today was our free trial stuff for the Ayn Rand books. I haven't read it yet so I'm not going to post anything until I do. I'm hoping to do some of it over the weekend and I'll let you know what I think. I also have a couple of other people reading it to get their viewpoint as well.
We have a "field trip" tomorrow so I'm sure we'll be posting some pictures soon! Looking forward to some fun stuff!
