If your kids ask to do schoolwork on the computer instead of watching a movie, you might think the computer program is just too much fun and they aren't really learning, right!  Wrong! With Mathscore, your kids, my kids, are doing adding, subtracting, time, money and anything math but without all the fluff and distractions found on many 'math helper' sites. 
My oldest son Redd, needed some 'flashcard' work on his multiplication.  Mathscore does just that!  The program is set to automatically review any problems missed and they do not reach the next level unless all problems are done correctly in one set. 
My next son Rusty is doing really well with adding and subtracting and again, this program does the 'flashcard' work and I can spend time working with another kid.
Even my 3 yr. old Elijah asks to work.  With him, we do the copycat preparation where he has to copy whatever number is on the screen.  He was pretty excited with the fireworks when he finished all the levels!
Mathscore aligns with state math standards and to NCTM Focal Points. There are sample problems to try before each worksheet and you can set the time allowed for each problem depending on the needs of the student.
Here's a neat fact: In one school year, the average student practices more than 10,000 problems while using this online practice program only one hour per week!

You can experience a free trial here.
There is also a free worksheet generator here.

In exchange for my honest reviews, I receive monthly access to MATHSCORE.COM

Lawry's 'What's Your Flavor' Gift Kit Review and Giveaway

People with a passion for food love expressing themselves through their cooking. Whether it´s marinades, seasoning mixes, or spice blends, Lawry´s products are a great way to express yourself in the kitchen by adding flavor to your favorite foods.

A recent Lawry´s survey found that your choice of flavor says more about you than you think. The nationwide poll looked at preferences for tart, spicy, sweet, and savory flavors and found that your choice can reveal some interesting aspects of your personality.

What´s your flavor?
Joyous Joiners - Tart Flavors
If you are one for tart flavors, you tend to be extremely happy overall, particularly with your family, finances, work/life balance and even your health. As a Joyous Joiners you are an extrovert who loves to entertain at home, find it very important to join in social events in your community and are active on the greatest number of social networking sites.

Self-Assured Adventurers - Spicy Flavors If your preference is for spicy flavors, consider yourself a confident, adventurous individual with a passion for travel and cooking. You are the biggest risk taker and although impulsive, you are not reckless - as a Self-Assured Adventurer you also tend to be resourceful, analytical, and most able to "look at the big picture."

The Sweet Lifers - Sweet Flavors
As a Sweet Lifer, home and family are close to your heart. You are the kindest and most loyal, although you probably wouldn´t admit that as you are also the most modest. As an individual that prefers sweeter flavors (honey and fruit-infused), you are influenced by your parents, enjoy family entertainment, and consider yourself spiritual.

The Conventionalists - Savory Flavors
Your passion for savory flavors shows you have an enthusiasm for politics, enjoy camping and hiking and love outdoor barbeques and American cuisine. Along with the other Conventionalists, you tend to be more introverted than the rest of the groups and often describe yourself as a homebody.
Lawry´s has something for you no matter what your flavor is, including two new marinades and four new Seasoning Mix packets that help create simple meals with an abundance of flavor:

Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ gives meat a delicious sweet and sour flavor with a touch of Szechuan heat

Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato includes extra virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet red bell peppers and the perfect blend of herbs
Seasoning Mixes

Asian Style Beef  Broccoli - This easy to prepare stir fry meal will remind your family of their favorite Asian restaurant. The dish combines beef, broccoli and seasonings with a hint of garlic. Serve it over rice and you have a complete, satisfying meal.

Chimichurri Burrito Casserole - Lawry´s gives the familiar Burrito casserole a new twist with this traditional Latin American sauce. With a few simple fresh ingredients, mealtime just got a lot more exciting.

Mediterranean Sundried Tomato Garlic Chicken - Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your family´s casserole. This easy to bake casserole combines chicken, pasta, tomatoes and Feta cheese to easily make a flavorful meal any night of the week.

Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil - Chicken Marsala is a restaurant favorite, but it might not make the menu at home. This effortless version comes together on your stovetop with just a few fresh ingredients. Flavorful garlic and basil gives this meal its own Tuscan flair, perfect for serving over pasta or rice.

My husband liked this giveaway because he is determined to master the grill and marinades of course lend a helping hand!  I tried the Chimmichurri Burrito casserole one night and my family loooovvvvveeed it! I doubled the recipe hoping to have leftovers for the next night but not much was left!
I had a picture of the almost finished casserole that looked great while I was taking the picture but on screen did not do it justice so I will let you use your imagination!  I'll blame the bad picture on the camera not the photographer!
The oversized casserole dish sent in the kit was perfect for doubling recipes. I'll definitely be using it more often.  My Blog Spark and Lawry's would like to offer one of my readers a chance at winning one of these 'What's Your Flavor?' Kits which will include a marinating dish, a set of skewers, Lawry´s two new marinades, as well as a sample of each of the four new Seasoning Mixes and a bottle of Lawry´s Seasoned Salt .

What do you get when you mix country, blues, jazz, brass band, rap and more? You get the new album by Norah Jones, 'Featuring'.  I wouldn't have thought of putting Willie Nelson and Norah Jones together but the song,  'Baby It's Cold Outside' is awesome. 
This collection of her music dating from 2001 to 2010 constantly surprises and keeps you on your musical toes.  'Bull Rider' with Norah and Sasha Dobson has that western clippety clop beat while 'Ruler Of My Heart' yanks you over to a brass band/50's style sound.  'Ruler of My Heart' takes you on a trip to the hot desert and has that Chris Isaak guitar sound going on.  'Life is Better' and 'Soon The New Day' give you a hip-hop/rap sound.
'Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John' is Norah Jones newest song takes you back to highschool dating days.
Not that any of us want to physically go back there but the lines make you remember that guy who was a great friend and at some point in time one of you wanted it to be more than just friends while the other was content with just friendship. 
Who wouldn't like 'Here We Go Again' with Ray Charles or 'Creepin In' with Dolly Parton?!
'Court & Spark' starts off with this classical jazz piano sound while 'Virginia Moon' and 'More Than This' have that piano, drums, bass sound of a jazz trio.  'Turn Them' has a Caribbean feel to it with the sound of fingers sliding on a guitar and a piano echo in the distance.
'Loretta' reminds me of  bluegrass you might hear on NPR Sunday evenings. Quiet and refreshing.
'Blue Bayou' is a soulful song full of longing that appropriately makes you sad the CD is over.
My overall opinion is I love this CD.  All the songs are unique and fresh.
My favorite song on the CD: It's a tie between 'Baby It's Cold Outside' and 'Bull Rider'.

Here is the entire list of songs:

1. Love Me – The Little Willies
2. Virginia Moon – The Foo Fighters featuring Norah Jones
3. Turn Them – Sean Bones featuring Norah Jones
4. Baby It's Cold Outside – Willie Nelson featuring Norah Jones
5. Bull Rider – Norah Jones and Sasha Dobson
6. Ruler Of My Heart – Dirty Dozen Brass Band featuring Norah Jones
7. The Best Part – El Madmo
8. Take Off Your Cool – OutKast featuring Norah Jones
9. Life Is Better – Q-Tip featuring Norah Jones
10. Soon The New Day – Talib Kweli featuring Norah Jones
11. Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John – Belle & Sebastian featuring Norah Jones
12. Here We Go Again – Ray Charles featuring Norah Jones
13. Loretta – Norah Jones featuring Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
14. Dear John – Ryan Adams featuring Norah Jones
15. Creepin' In – Norah Jones featuring Dolly Parton
16. Court & Spark – Herbie Hancock featuring Norah Jones
17. More Than This – Charlie Hunter featuring Norah Jones
18. Blue Bayou – Norah Jones featuring M. Ward

If you head on over to her website, you will find links to 'Video Vignettes' of the featured tracks. You also may order on Amazon here.

With this review I received a CD to give my honest opinion about and will be entered to win a gift card through One2One Network by participating.

Fiber One Review and Giveaway

If you´re dieting, chances are you´re hungry! You know skipping breakfast or drinking that diet shake just isn´t going to cut it. When diets leave you hungry, you can find yourself off-course and giving into dreaded and seemingly inevitable cravings.

Fiber helps satisfy your hunger so it´s easier to eat less and lose weight without feeling as hungry. One serving of Fiber One Original cereal provides more than half (57%) of the Daily Value of fiber.

Fiber One Original cereal is a tasty way to start your morning on the right track with 0 grams of sugar, 14 grams of fiber, 60 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.

I recently was given the opportunity to try out a Fiber One "Help Take the Hunger out of Dieting" prize pack that included Fiber One Original cereal, a cereal-on-the-go container, food scale, water bottle and notepad for tracking what I eat.

Well, homeschoolers are famous for turning anything into a teachable moment so we weighed all kinds of stuff around the table uncluding their bowls before and after adding cereal and milk.
Math in the morning!!!

                                       (He's happy, that's just the way he smiles right now for the camera!)
(caught with his mouth full)

(Happy Miya!)
 (We love water! Believe it or not, the day before our Fiber One package arrived, I just wished in my mind for a thermos to put my delicious Silk Almond Milk in to take with me on trips! Thank you Lord for this gift!)

For more information or additional tips, please visit  fiberone.com  The first fifteen readers who click on this banner above will be able to sign up to receive a free box of cereal.  You can also click on the banner to receive a $1.10 coupon!
