PAC Character and Skills for Home and Career Review

Disclosure:  I have been sent complimentary copy for review purposes only. Any links can be affiliates meaning if you buy something I might get some pennies. This review has been monetarily compensated. The review was my honest opinion and views were not influenced by the sponsor in any way.

There is something special about the UPS man dropping off a package at the front door.  The kids are always open to tear into a package of goodies – just like their Mom.

This package from Pacworks.com had me more than excited.  I have home-schooled all my babies.  My eldest is now a sophomore.  High school is so different from the primary grades.  Yet, at the same time it is still learning and now we are at a stage where we are learning together.  My eldest has different interests than I did when I was in high school.

 This is why Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum works for us!

  • My son is a reader and very hands on.  This course caters to both!  Each lesson is written in a story form that is easy to follow along.  It presents a problem and a solution.
  • Each lesson also has a vocabulary box with about 4 to 5 words that are focused on during the lesson.  This may seem elementary but these are words that have to do with certain parts of each skill.  I even learned some new words just glancing at the boxes i.e ground fault interrupters (page 7 of Chapter 3 text book.)
  • After each lesson there is an activity book that the student can fill out.  Some of the questions are true or false, multiple choice or fill in the blank.
  • This course contains very simple tasks that just gives a brief view of various skills they may want to pursue.  Some of the tasks in this book we have already started to teach our kids because we have remodeled one home and are well on our way into a second remodel.  Personally, I would have loved to have this course before we actually started.  It could have saved us some time and probably money.
  • Another benefit of this course is the ease to teach it.  It is very self explanatory and not a lot of preparation.  THAT is a win-win in my book.  I enjoy handing my son a book and then he can go off and learn something.

This course is just a very basic course to enlighten the student into something he/she may want to go into.

Essentials for fighting the flu and a giveaway


We have had the flu. 3 out of 7 of us. This in any family requires some delicate training. Thankfully, my hubby has been in OJT – On the Job training before. He went to the store and stocked up with essentials for fighting this ugly virus. Powerade, Kleenexes, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen. He has been doing this for many years so he also knew I would not want to cook so he also planned a

Great Resource for Home Bible Studies


I love reading the Bible. Even more than reading it – I love when I find that little treasure that expands it to life.  Like the first time you go to the zoo and see how massive the elephants are or how the giraffes would be great at playing basketball if they had hands.  That is how I feel when I look up a word in its original text like Hebrew or Greek, a whole

Homeschooling High School

Some areas I am on top of the game.  (Like baby, we have

Do It Yourself Projects


My hubby and I have been doing DIY projects for years. A few questions we often hear: “Where did you learn to do this?” “Aren’t you scared something is going to break?” “My husband would never be able to do what your husband does – he is so NOT handy.” I just laugh. If they only knew we learned most of everything we do out of plain force. In other words, if someone really needs

Lake Living


One of my most favorite things thus far while living on a lake are the views. Every day there is a new photo opportunity. A fresh chance to capture the still life with a new perspective. I don’t think it will ever get old.  (This Works for me!) From birds to more birds… These are the ones that have stayed through the winter and have fought the freezing temperatures. They make me smile – daily.

He gives me JOY


Every day, I have joy.  Real joy. Unspeakable most days. Unexplainable all days. But I do know know where it comes from – Him. His warmth is like a cozy blanket in front of a crackling fire. His love.  I can’t even go in depths of how forgiving that one is and always will be. And you know the best part? He will never let go.  Matthew 6:34 – The Message: Give your entire attention

Best Birder App for Beginners


I love birds! It wasn’t until we started homeschooling that I realized how many different birds there were in the United States. We then moved to a Birder’s Paradise: The Rio Grande Valley – known for ALL the birds.  People come all over the world to see them action.  Just take a look at our hummingbird video.  Those birds are amazing! Then we moved, To East Texas by a beautiful lake and I have NO
