IMG_4604

  • They required very little prep from me…really all I have to do is print out what we are working on! {I like to print out as I go, but you could easily print out the Lap Pak in its entirety}
  • It is a work at what ever pace works for that particular day! Some days we will cover 2 or 3 sections and the next day only 1.
  • It is a great study to use when the whole family is sick and you NEED low key but the kids want fun…Trust me two days after getting our Lap Pak the kids all got sick {thank God for my Thieves and RC essential oils they saved us!}
  • It comes with EVERYTHING! No hidden ‘oh well you also need….’ The Lap Pak activities, are mostly coloring, cutting and gluing. Like I mentioned above there is a booklet included to help walk you through each study section and activity. I have found that this perfect to read while the kids are doing their activities!

IMG_4595

This Lap Pak has been awesome! My oldest son LOVES history especially American History and Wars {just like his Dad!} As we were reading in the very first section “World Wars” it opened up many doors of discussion. We were able to talk a lot about my grandpas service and how he helped liberate an island in the South Pacific under Gen. MacArthur during WWII and how he is a Hero whether he believes it or not. When we read the section about

IMG_4602

Vietnam we talked about my Uncle and his service {Screamin Eagles 101st Airborne} How he joined VERY young and the horrible things he went through and saw {he came home early with a significant land mine injury – his best friend died because of that land mine} My son knows that his Great Grandpa and Great Uncle are Heros!

IMG_4599During the Cold War section the Berlin Wall is discussed. This prompted a more in-depth study of the Berlin Wall from it rising in 1961 until 1989 when families and friend who were separated were able to reunite once again. This was extra special an emotional for me. My oldest brother was stationed in Germany in 1989 and I will NEVER forget the famous words from former President Reagan “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Then the phone call from my brother telling us that people were crossing. I was younger than my oldest son is now but I will never forget what it felt like to watch the footage of the wall getting jumped over and chiseled away! I’m thrilled with the 20th Century Pak and how it prompted so many conversations. Thank you Homeschool in the Woods!

My favorite iPad case! {Trident Kraken A.M.S}

trident

When it comes my iPad I want it to be protected and secure, after all I have three kids who take over my iPad whenever they are given the opportunity! I have had the absolute worst time finding iPad cases that I like that was actually protective and functional not only for myself, but for homeschooling and for my kids to use. I’ve had many cases, some of the magnetizing cases are great at first but almost every single one I’ve had has demagnetized after just a short amount time and literally just falls off?!? The folio cases are great as well in fact I was sure this style would be my absolute faves…but the binding eventually starts wearing out! What’s a girl to do? I was thrilled when my friend Niki from Trident Case sent me a case to use and enjoy! I am so excited to introduce you to my brand-new iPad case the Trident – Kraken A.M.S.

Kraken A.M.S. Series cases are the absolute strongest, most durable cases we make. The Kraken A.M.S. case for tablets consists of shock-absorbing silicone inner layer, covered by a hardened polycarbonate outer-casing, with a built-in screen protector, to provide maximum protection.

As soon as I opened the package I was impressed with the Trident Kraken AMS case. Oh, I got hot pink {of course} it comes in a bunch of other great colors! 

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Red 
  • Purple
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Maroon 

My hubby wants the Green {it’s Seahawks green baby!}

This case has three different parts – front plate, silicone sleeve, back plate to ensure ultimate protection!

Check out this awesome video from trade-ins YouTube page talk about giving your iPad case a run for its money huh!?

So there are some things that I love about Trident:

944755_630625486950133_283472548_nThese cases are TOUGH! Trust me my kids have dropped my iPad face down on concrete and NOTHING…not even a scratch! 

Check out this tough test that Trident did on the Kraken A.M.S case

Trident cases are proudly made in the United States they have a factory in California! All Trident cases are manufactured and assembled right here in the United States!

Trident cases are biodegradable!

 The cool thing about the Trident cases is that they’re not just for Apple products! They cover the ENTIRE spectrum!

We know the stories of Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus, but in this groundbreaking new Bible DVD series, we learn how they all fit together to tell one big, redemptive story. Vischer’s signature wit shines through with his all-new cast of characters, fast-paced flash animation, and catchy tunes. This is one journey through the Bible you won’t want to miss!

Our family was first introduced to What’s in the Bible? through the children’s director and dear friend at our former church a few years ago. From the first time our son saw What’s in the Bible he was HOOKED! Then we borrowed a DVD from and watched it as a family…and we ALL were hooked! Not only does What’s in the Bible? make understanding the Bible easy for kids, but it’s done in a really fun way! Phil Vischer and his staff has done a phenomenal job with these DVD’s! The knowledge our kids have gained is amazing, our oldest LOVES reading his bible so that he can increase his knowledge. In fact the kid is so smart he can easily enter into conversations with adults {both the What’s in the Bible? DVD and the fact his dad was a youth pastor and currently working towards a biblical degree, have contributed to our sons knowledge:)}

Our kids absolutely LOVE all the cute characters..and so do we!

charac

My husband and I absolutely love that one of our favorite duos Rhett & Link {from Good Mythical Morning} sings fun songs…Like this one about Genesis in Vol. 1!

About Volume 1: In the Beginning

What’s in the Bible? Volume 1 is all about the beginning! It covers the book of Genesis and answers the following two questions:

Untitled-12

IMG_4474

Volume 1 covers some of the most popular Bible stories from the book of Genesis like, the story of creation, Adam and Eve, Abraham, Noah’s Ark, and so much more! They are SO MUCH fun! I love that kids are engaged and having fun while they are learning!

What’s in the Bible? is the perfect whole family bible time for our mornings! My  husband works from home so we are able to enjoy and learn through What’s in the Bible? together!

How we use the What’s in the Bible curriculum in our home:

In addition to the DVD’s there are a whole bunch of fun activities! {images below are for What’s in the Bible Vol. 1}

guide

IMG_4502

The Discussion guide asks all kinds of questions to review what your learned during the DVD!

  • What does the word “Testament” mean?
  • How do we know the Bible is true?
  • What does the word “inspired” mean?
  • Do you remember the name of the first book of the Bible? What does it mean?
  • How do you trust God with your life?
  • Proverbs 3:5 says “Trust the Lord with all your heard and do not lean on your own understanding.” What are ways you can apply this to your daily life?

I just saved this to ibooks on my iPad instead of printing it out.

pages

IMG_4496

There are a bunch of really fun coloring pages that go with Volume 1 like:

  • Volume 1 DVD Cover Coloring page
  • Adam and Eve
  • Cain and Abel
  • Abraham {Abraham and Isaac}
  • Noah’s Ark

I made each of the kids their very own coloring book!!

IMG_4478

Flash

IMG_4512

These flashcards are AWESOME! They will help you and your kids remember all kinds of wonderful and important things from the DVD, such as:

  • What’s in the Bible?
  • How many books are in the Bible?
  • How many years did it take to write the Bible?

The Flash cards are really easy to make! Print, Cut out the cards horizontally {you will end up folding the cards so be sure you only cut on the horizontal lines}, Fold and tape together or if you want to get really fancy laminate them!!IMG_4476

The flash cards are my oldest sons favorite! I even printed a second set and instead of folding them I cut them all out and he play a memory game with them!

PSCL

IMG_4515

This is probably my kids favorite activity! They are able to learn all kinds of fun stuff while learning! For this activity there are some really fun printouts including

  • 3 pages of Puppets
  • Space Background
  • Garden of Eden BackgroundIMG_4480

IMG_4485

IMG_4483

The kids love making their own puppet shows to tell the story of Creation or Adam and Eve! They also enjoy making up their own fun and crazy puppet shows…but they always come back to God and Creation…gotta love that!

{I printed out the puppets on card stock and the back grounds on regular paper}

In addition to all this great stuff there are a ton of printable memory verse cards!

IMG_4511 IMG_4510

These are one of my most favorite printables from What’s in the Bible? As you can see they are small, perfect for little hands! The kids each pick their own card each week and we learn them all as a family! The kids love that each card has a fun character, I love that they are learning and memorizing bible verses! There are some verse cards without characters I picked these ones specifically because of the characters *there are a TON of verse cards in the activity section. I printed out a bunch of different ones on card stock.

You can download and print all the activities here! {Psst…there are all kinds of activities for ALL the volumes!}

Ok so if I haven’t made it totally clear…We LOVE What’s in the Bible!

FLIP

the “FlipBelt” printed on the belt is a reflector!!!

unnamedIs it comfortable?

Yes! Recently our family went on a fairly long mountain hike, since I of course had my FlipBelt I carried my phone & our car keys {notice in the photo the keys are quite bulky} I couldn’t even tell I was carrying anything! Since the belt is double layered there is no poking or jabbing!

Does it stay on?

Yes! Honestly I was a little concerned that it would slip down during my more active workouts. I’m here to tell you that is just NOT the case! It doesn’t matter what my work out it…Running, weights, HIIT, Battle Rope…It has never once slipped no matter how many times I have ‘tested’ it!

What I LOVE about FlipBelt:

  • Awesome Colors {I love my hot pink!}

  • Machine washable
  • Very Easy to put on and take off

A few things I wouldn’t put in my FlipBelt {since these items are very small they could find a way to slip out}

  • Coins

Bottle|Band Review and GIVEAWAY!

 IMG_4000

I so excited to share Bottle|Band with you today! First things first:

 

What is Bottle|Band?

logo

Its a cool silicone band that goes around your water bottle giving it a handle and making it easier to carry! Yay! No more dropping my water bottle!
 
My husband and I almost never run with water bottles because it can feel like too much “baggage”, honestly its really annoying to hold a water bottle while running or hiking! I’m always worried about dropping it! Then at home or at the gym I can’t tell you how many times I have dropped my water bottle on the treadmill…Please tell me that I’m not the only one! 🙂 But, not taking/drinking water is so not good for us! Staying hydrated is so important when it comes to taking care of your body. A little Hydration 101: When you drink water you flush out nasty toxins that are in your body…but there are even more benefits…including metabolism boost, weightless,  beautiful and healthier skin  and most importantly {in my opinion} a healthier heart. When we are working out or just simply being active we NEED to stay hydrated, the problem? There are situations when drinking water isn’t easy…like running or when you are in a workout groove at the gym or at home. However skipping the water a pressing on can lead to dehydration, and the only thing dehydration is good for is making you tired with no energy and possibly sick…NO one wants that…and it can be dangerous!

After chatting with the guys at Bottle|Bands about trying out the Bottle|Bands, I have to admit I was pretty excited! Ooh maybe I would actually take a water bottle on my runs and hikes, maybe I wouldn’t be so worried about dropping it!

When I got my bands in the mail my hubby {who is a hardcore runner} was so stoked and immediately wanted to give them a try, sooooo we did! we were both VERY impressed! The Bottle|Band stayed secure the whole time and was really comfortable to use! Yay! We didn’t have to worry about dropping bottles!

BBBottle|Bands and Kids! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these for my kiddos! They are perfect! Our family goes on walks/jogs every night! Especially in the summer we go through a LOT of water…but whose carrying it you ask? Yep! Mom and Dad! Not anymore!  The kids can just loop there water bottle with a Bottle|Band over their handlebar and we are good to go! Mom and Dad love it and so do the kids!

What I love about Bottle| Band:

  • Its one-size-fits all!
  • It’s very comfortable to use
  • Because of the handle you can hang your bottle on your treadmill, a door knob, or at the equipment at the gym!
  • You can customize your very own band! How cool would it be to get matching Bottle| Band for your kiddos team! Walking or running in a charity event? Get matching Bottle| Band for the whole team!
  • Running in a race? BottleBand is perfect for disposable bottle because once you finished you water you can throw your bottle away and put the BottleBand on your wrist and keep on running unencumbered!
  • Bottle| Band costs about $6!!!
  • Bottle| Band comes in a bunch of colors, with different sayings! Check em’ out!IMG_4035
How to use Bottle| Band:
 

 
I don’t have any CONS at all! The Bottle|Bands fit all the bottle I tried including our ninja smoothy cups {my hubby and I have smoothies in them every morning and they are perfect to take on morning hikes}
IMG_4030
 
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors or at the Gym {home gym included!} The Bottle|Band makes carrying and hanging your water bottle super easy!

LIVEexercise.com Review and Membership GIVEAWAY!!!

NGNELast month I shared a little bit about LIVEexercise {you can check out that post here} Today I’m beyond excited to share more about LIVEexercise with you!!

I want to take a few minutes and answer some questions that you might have about LIVEexercise starting with…

What’s LIVEexercise?

First of all LIVEexercise is AWESOME. It’s a online community of trainers and workout partners! These men and women are completely dedicated to making healthy living accessible for EVERYONE regardless of fitness level, body types, ages or location. In addition they are also dedicated to making all of this affordable regardless of your income level!

LiveExercise’s personal trainers are absolutely the best in the world!

10562617_723315367731429_8499035580581290787_o

The workouts are really LIVE which means no retakes or  make up artists. I love the raw realness of these trainers, they are like friends, no judgement, no disappointment, they are there to encourage, push and support you because they really care! All workouts are filmed and broadcast in real-time from the LIVEexercise studios in Boca Raton Florida.

What kind of workouts does LIVEexercise post? Whoa, there are a ton! Like I mentioned above, LIVEexercise is dedicated to making workouts for EVERYONE regardless of fitness level, because of this there are several different categories…take a look…

WO

Like I said WHOA!

Here is a quick look at one of my FAVE workouts so far! I love it! I love Heather! View a clip from Episode 488 HERE!

How do I use LIVEexercise? The 3000+  will be totally  useless if you know how to use them. That’s why LIVEexercise has a onboarding” process. This on boarding process will help guide you towards the workouts and programs that are best for you!

screeninstructionsThere are a series of questions to help you find the perfect fit for you, such as:

What Level are you? choose from:

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

What is your Goal? choose from:

  • Build Muscle
  • Lose Weight/Fat
  • Increased Mobility
  • Performance
  • Tone and Tighten

What will you use? choose from:

  • Bodyweight
  • Resistance Bands
  • Treadmill

After answering these easy questions you will get suggestions based on your answers! Fool proof!

What if I miss a LIVE workout? No worries! As soon as the “live” shows are finished they are available on demand for replay, you also can view all past workouts in the archives! How cool is that! NEVER miss a workout because you’re late!

Can LIVEexercise really help me meet my fitness goals? Yes! LIVEexercise is there to support and cheer you on! When you workout with trainers you watch them push and struggle, they are right there with you! There ‘s something about that that just makes you want to push on! If you are dedicated to your fitness and want to make a change you will be encouraged knowing that the trainer ALWAYS shows up to work out with you and you will want to do the same.

I’m really busy and don’t have a lot of time to workout, can I still use LIVEexercise? No problem! YES you can! There are full-length classes that last between 30 and 50 minutes but, some take as little as 10 minutes! They are awesome and intense!

What kind of Equipment with I need? When you view the the LIVEexercise workouts you will notice that they often require Resistance Bands. LIVEexcerise LOVES resistance bands because they are compact, cheap, durable, and super effective. Get an amazing set of Resistance Band from Bodylastics HERE! I recommend the Max Tension XT set! You can also pick some up at any local store {including Wal Mart & Target}

What’s the cost?

VS

“LIVEexercise was developed with one goal in mind, to produce follow along at home workouts that would rival or surpass the best workouts at the gym or anyplace else. We call them at home workouts, but you can really do them anywhere! Since you can stream these incredible routines via the internet, you can also do them on the road, at the park, in an airport, the choice is yours.”

Why do I personally LOVE LIVEexercise? There are two main reasons. The first reason is the “On Demand” option! I have three kids, I’m a homeschool mom, I’m a full-time blogger…I’m busy 24/7, but I cannot and will not forfeit my health {I’ve done that enough in the past and it left me tired, feeling bad about my body and overweight} The On Demand options ensure that I will NEVER miss a workout, because let’s face it things happen and change our plans all the time. I’m able to pull up my favorite workouts, or the next episode in my program whenever I want…it might be 5 am or midnight, but I’m doing it!

The second reason is the fact that I can do all these awesome workouts in the comfort of my own home! I have friends who absolutely love the gym, and that’s great, but that is NOT me! I have never enjoyed going to the gym {regardless of my weight} I know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t care for the gym. There are a number of reasons as to why so many women specifically do not like the gym, including insecurity. When you go to the gym and you are uncomfortable it can be difficult to get a good workout in because of how you feel. That is NOT the case with LIVEexercise!
