I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. I really, really, really love names.  As my husband will attest, I'm always excited and willing to talk about baby names, even when I'm not expecting a baby.  If you love names as much as I do and find them fun and interesting, you'll love CrossTimber , a company that makes the coolest name meaning gifts and products.  I recently had the opportunity to try out their Name Bookmarks and AmazingName Print Activity Sheets and let me tell you, they're awesome and perfect for this gift-giving season we're now entering, especially if your goal this holiday season is to support small businesses.  First, the Name Bookmarks .  One of my biggest accomplishments as a bookworm mother is that my kids have learned to love books.  My oldest daughter especially loves to read an

I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. If you've read my curriculum post you'll recall that I planned on studying ancient history with my kids this year.  So you can imagine how stoked I was to have the opportunity to review Drive Thru History ®  Adventures' latest course, Bible Unearthed.  This program is amazing for homeschooling families - especially if you're teaching one history curriculum to several different grade levels.
