Veritas Press Self-Paced Online Bible Old Testament 2: Judges to Kings {Review}

It is no secret that the Creative Madness Mama family is a really big fan of the Veritas Press company. These past few weeks many families of the TOS Review Crew have spent time reviewing different products including the Self-Paced Bible with three review options for the crew including the following: Old Testament 1: Genesis to Joshua Old Testament 2: Judges to Kings New Testament 1: The Gospels We are reviewing Old Testament 2: Judges to Kings for the crew review and continuing it for our 2016-2017 school year for my entering third-grade daughter (she will turn seven-years-old during the summer months). The other product for the crew reviews is a one-year family subscription to VeritasBible.com.

The History of Art: Creation to Contemporary (Veritas Press) {Review}

My daughter AppleBlossom has stated the desire that she wants to be an artist when she grows up, specifically a painter.

What’s up?

Summer; Math Studies & Cursive Well I haven’t been abundantly active here, but we’ve been active elsewhere! From VBS to a summer cold to a little bit of summer school we’ve been busy. We’ve started working in part two of Saxon Math and are getting close to the introduction of multiplication as well as continuing to reinforce our fact families for addition and subtraction. We’re going alphabetically in cursive and are about halfway way through the alphabet. History & Bible AppleBlossom is working a delighted steady pace through Veritas Press Self-Paced OTAE (Old Testament & Ancient Egypt) History and now also Self-Paced Bible: Genesis through Joshua. She’s studying the Flood and Noah now and about to start on the Unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, so the Egyptian fun begins! We’ve been collecting books so I’m eager to immerse ourselves in this study. We’ve been watching more Netflix and our. . .
