We use and recommend the following resources:
 
Abe Books – We read a great many living books in our homeschool. Abe Books is an invaluable resource for buying used books at a great price, many of which have free shipping. We also use our local library as a book resource, but enjoy building an at-home library and Abe Books is helping us to just that.
 
All About Birds (The Cornell Lab of Ornithology) – We have used this site for many years. All About Birds allows us to watch bird cams of wild species raising their young. The site also provides information about all bird species, including habitats, calls, migration, etc.
 
Free School’s YouTube Channel – Free School is a safe and friendly place to expose children to famous art, classical music, children’s literature, and natural science in an age-appropriate way.
 
Lilla Rose – I am a consultant for Lilla Rose.  I believe these are the best looking, best designed, and best made hair clips, bobby pins, and hair sticks.  I have a page on this website with additional information, including a link to my Lilla Rose shop where you could purchase any of the items.
 
Mater Amabilis – A structured, Charlotte Mason style curriculum for Catholics. Michelle Quiqley, a homeschooling mother, graciously designed this curriculum and offers it for free. We are new to using Mater Amabilis, but so far, I would recommend it to anyone wishing to delve into a Charlotte Mason education for their children.
 
Spotify – Listen to music for free.
 
The Catholic Daily Planner by Michelle Quiqley is the only day planner that I ever use.   l love, love, love this planner. Michelle leaves plenty of room to write, but also includes liturgical year information for both the Ordinary Form and Extraordinary Form. Did I mention that the cover choices are lovely? They really are beautiful! Michelle also gives the option of adding lesson planners and menu planners to your day planner. I love when September rolls around and I get a brand new Catholic Daily Planner in the mail.

Do visit these ladies! They share such a wealth of information. Each of them continues to help me along my journey, whether it be my faith, homeschooling, homesteading or keeping my home. There is so much information available on the internet that it can be hard for me to decide where to spend my limited, internet time. I know I will be enriched if I visit these families.
