Sometimes in life you need to teach kids how to do some manual labor. I posted a funny today on my Facebook about us 'bailing hay the old way' along with some pictures. It has really caught my attention about how many kids these days do not know how to do many life skills, and definitely do not know anything about sustaining life without a grocery store. If farmers die off so will the stores. We really need to take a step back and spend some time teaching our kids some real life skills. Teach them how to plant something. Even if you can't have a garden you can plant in a bucket or pot. You can grow a great strawberry plant in a hanging pot and get some yummy treats from it. Show your kid how to pick up a broom and sweep the floor. Do some dishes the old way. Teach your kids some skills because being their maid will not do anything but make them have a hard time adjusting when they leave your home.
The book had so much stuff to keep us going and keep the kids all interested. My "school" kids are ages 6-10 and I did not have any complaints from any of them. We will be doing more of the unit studies for sure. I hope my other christian homeschool families will give them a try as well. You can click below and see what my other crew members had to say about some of the other unit studies.

Minbie is a odd looking bottle. The nipple is more elongated and not round at the end. It doesn't look at first sight like it would simulate the breast since my idea would to look like a breast nipple. Though after trying it out I see how it is made because the baby has to suck different to drink out of it like that of a breast. My son took a bit and at first I did not think he would take it but he did figure it out. I think it's more because I have flat nipples which brings a whole other hurdle in breastfeeding. The bottle came with a regular nipple as well as a 3+ nipple that has a faster flow.
Side note my son also has a lip tie that is uncorrected. It hadn't effected his breastfeeding so we left it be. I did have to give him some Pedialite which is in the bottle in the picture after a sick spell. The only thing I noticed was he only sucked the nipple. I am not sure if this was correct or was part of his issue with the lip tie. But he did drink very well out of it once getting the hang of it.
I also liked the wide mouth design as it is much easier to clean than other bottles.
Use Minbie as the first and only bottle teat for your baby to help maintain and strengthen your baby's instinctive breastfeeding technique, the way nature intended. Minbie does subsidise shipping to the US only charging $7.95AUD ($6.20USD) https://minbie.com

After that I went through the mirror maze. It was hard to take a picture to really capture what it was like. Everything looked the same on the camera. It is really hard to see where to turn next! There were people in front of me and sometimes it would seem like I was about to run into them and others like they were on the other side of the building.
