Home Schooling A Toddler with ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy

This post was originally published on 6/16/2013.

Education is so important to me. I believe that in order to help our children be self-sufficient, they need a solid foundation which in my opinion is education. I have been home schooling SweetPea for a few months now. I looked into a two year old preschool for her, but with money being tight, I didn't feel that was a viable option. I was recently asked to try an Early Learning Academy app with my daughter. I feel it is more budget friendly option for the parent who wants to help further their child's education.

I have seen their commercials on PBS and Disney Junior, so I was always curious, but for some reason I never looked in it. ABCmouse.com is perfect for when the kids are out of school this summer to keep their minds at work while having fun, it's perfect for the child that needs a little help, it's a great tool for home schooling moms, and it's perfect for us because they have lessons specifically designed for toddlers.

Unboxing January's Degustabox

It isn't any surprise how much I love subscription boxes. I have been reviewing this awesome foodie subscription box for a few months now. It has introduced me to so many new products I had never heard of, as well as try products that I had been wanting to.


I love Degustabox. I think it is well worth the money. Basically for only $19.99 ($9.99 with code + free gifts if you keep scrolling), you get a box FILLED with goodies. You can try so many different flavors and many of these products are new to the market. So definitely a great way to try before you buy!

So what was in my box?

Exploring High Falls State Park

In our efforts to start a healthier lifestyle, my husband and I have taken up hiking again. We are not trying to lose weight, we are trying to get more active and eat a balanced diet. My husband's birthday was on Monday, so we decided to take a trip over to High Falls State Park since we had never been before. Located northwest of Macon, High Falls State Park is named for tumbling cascades on the Towaliga River. Boat rental, ramps and fishing docks provide easy access to the park’s lake, known as one of Georgia’s top fishing spots for hybrid and white bass.

Exploring High Falls State Park

The day started a little chilly, but it has been feeling like Spring almost nearly day here in Georgia so it did warm up. It was actually the perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold, slight overcast so the sun didn't beat down on us. My will-be-three-in-March son decided his 30 lb. self wouldn't walk most of the way and of course we forgot our Lillebaby carrier, so my poor husband carried him most of the time.
