Herb Fairies ~ ENDS April 25th!

I recently read a post by my friend Diane about a program her and her daughter, Grace, are doing called  Herb Fairies. I was VERY intrigued! Herb Fairies is a book club and "herbal mentoring" program for kids. It comes with a monthly chapter book about fairies who use herbs in their lives for healing and other purposes. The stories are beautifully illustrated and fun, and then there are activities, games, puzzles, coloring pages, etc., that go along with each book. The books are delivered once per month, and cover one herb that is in season that particular month.

Purchasing the Herb Fairies books and program was for a limited time, and I missed the deadline. (They only start the distribution of the first book of the series in the Spring ... remember, the books are based on seasonal herbs.) Bummer! But on the website you could sign up for e-mail notifications of when the books would begin distribution again.

This morning I received an e-mail that Herb Fairies has been opened back up for A LIMITED TIME! Herb Fairies will take new members only through midnight, April 25th! The cost is $97 for the whole year's program, or three payments of $37. The great thing is that it has a 100% money-back guarantee! I signed up for the payment plan so that we can get the first two books, access to the website and activities, and then see if it is a program we would like to continue.

Why am I interested in this program? The kids and I are getting ready to start our Square Foot Garden for our science unit for the remainder of the year. We have a large area where we could plant herbs and other edible flowers and fruits. I thought this would be another GREAT way to teach the kids about the healing power of herbs, and to get them in the garden. AND they will be "doing school" in the summer, and not even realize it! ::wink::

If you are interested, go to the Herb Fairies website NOW before it's too late!


  1. So glad that you guys got to join up for this year. I am eager to see what your thoughts are on this product. We have enjoyed it so far.

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
