The Cat of Bubastes by Heirloom Audio Audio Productions ~ A Homeschool Crew Review

If you've been following my blog then you know just how much I love these audio dramas. This review is over The Cat of Bubastes by Heirloom Audio Productions, and it is my favorite so far! Again, just like before, I was super excited to see another audio drama come up for review. Heirloom Audio goes above and beyond to draw the listener in and capture their attention with every story. They really do bring these books to life with their sound effects and beautifully written sound track, plus all of the wonderful extras that go along with it. 

If this is your first time hearing about Heirloom Audio Productions, then let me tell you a little bit about what they do. They are known for recreating the stories of the legendary G.A. Henty. Mr. Henty was a war correspondent, a big guy with a big beard, who lived for adventure.  Unless you've lived under a rock, then you know he was a master story teller. He loved to share his stories with his family, and throughout the years, he went on to write 122 books! Heirloom Audio takes these stories and makes them come alive.  I am an avid book lover, and recently have even given audio books a try so I could listen and crochet at the same time. This is like no audio book. It truly is an adventure that allows your imagination to run wild, and it gives you a clear picture of what is going on throughout it.

What did we receive for this review?

We are really blessed every time we get to review something from Heirloom Audio Productions. Not only did we receive the 2 CD set, but also all of the spectacular components that go with it. 

I just have to take a moment to say that the packaging and inserts on these CDs are always beautifully done. It's so colorful and inviting! Ok so along with the 2 CD set, we also received the extras available for download, and they really do a great job of covering everything you need.

  • Cat of Bubastes MP3 download - I love having this option. Sometimes you don't always have a way to play the CDs so you can download the MP3's to your phone or other device and listen literally anywhere. I like to turn it on in my car on long trips!
  • Cat of Bubastes E-book - This is the original with new colorful graphics. I love having the option to read the book!
  • Official MP3 soundtrack - Another original score by Emmy winning composer, John Campbell.
  • Printable Cast Poster - Beautiful and colorful poster with a picture of the cast members.
  • Inspriational Verse Poster - Absolutely gorgeous poster that has the verse 1Chronicles 17:20 on it.
  • Live the Letter Adventure -  You will receive unlimited access to this e-news letter. 
  • Behind the Scenes Video - This will take you behind the scenes with the cast and crew.
  • Study Guide and Discussion Packet - This is such a wonderful tool that they include. I like to take the study guide and go over it after each track. It's 50 pages of discussion topics that will help you really dig deep into the story.

I also want to make sure I note that Heirloom Audio Productions always uses a star studded cast to bring these audio adventures to life. You will most likely recognize some of the stars that they use. They all do such a wonderful job of reeling you in and making you feel like you are there with them. You don't need a screen, because they give you a clear image of what's going on with their voices and sound effects. 

About The Cat of Bubastes

I absolutely loved this story and the characters in it. Our story starts with Amuba, a 16 year old prince who lost his father when he was killed in battle. Amuba and his care taker, Jethro, are taken captive and brought to Egypt to be slaves in Thebes. They end up with an Egyptian high priest, Ameres, and his family who are very kind to them. Ameres' son Chebron and Amuba end up being very good friends. Chebron and Amuba share many adventures throughout the story.  When the Cat of Bubastes dies, the family's cat is named the new sacred cat. The only problem is that tragedy strikes with Chebron and the cat. Because of this, they have to run for their lives. There is adventure at every corner of this story. I love the fact that even Moses made an appearance in the story! That will tell you just how far back this is set!

What did we think?

I love all of these audio dramas, but this was definitely my favorite! Like the others, it's also over 2 hours of story adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are brought to life and the story tellers pull you in, so that you feel like you are right there in the story with them. I recommend these to anyone, young or old! I love how this story taught valuable lessons and who the one true God is! If you are looking for some educational and wholesome entertainment, The Cat of Bubastes by Heirloom Audio Productions is a great place to start!

Our New Journey ~ Gavin and Eosinophilic Esophagitis

If you remember a little while back, I posted that Gavin had been in the hospital because he swallowed a piece of a toy gun, and that while they were in there, they found out he had a disorder in his esophagus. This past week we went to the Dr. and found out exactly what it is. Eosinophilic Esophagitis, or Eoe. It's a fairly new disease that they have found that affects the esophagus due to food allergies.

While he was in the hospital, they did some biopsies of his esophagus and also ran allergy testing. We found out he is allergic to milk, soy, wheat, corn, peanuts, and sesame. What happens is when he eats those things, his body fights it and he builds up white blood cells in his esophagus called eosinophils. This is what has been causing his food to get stuck. A lot of times this is passed off as not chewing well. That is exactly what I told Gav for so long.

So, we are on a new journey with food allergies, and he has to be on a pretty strict diet and acid blockers. The funny thing about it is when he was born, he seemed to have allergies from the start. When I switched him over to formula when I couldn't keep up with breast milk, he broke out in hives all over his little body. They had to give him an epi shot at the hospital to counteract the reaction. From here they switched him to soy formula. I never gave him milk again, unless it was spread out in a cake or something like that because that's what they told me to do. Who knew the entire time, I was giving him something that he was also allergic to. About 2 years ago, we switched his milk to almond milk, but I still gave it to him spread out.

When he was about 7 we had allergy testing done, and they told me he was absolutely NOT allergic to milk, and he really didn't have any food allergies because they were mainly environmental.  I am not sure if the difference showed because this was a blood test and that was the skin test or what, but the recent blood tests assured us he was very allergic to dairy.

I have already had people say, well he has never had any kind of reaction before (other than when he was a baby) so I don't understand why you're being so strict on his diet. Well, because his reaction isn't like a typical allergic reaction. His is on the inside of his body, and yes he HAS been having a reaction all of this time. It's like his body thinks that the food is attacking him so it attacks back. A vicious cycle. That's the reason his food gets stuck at times. The only way to ensure that his body can heal is to completely eliminate his allergens and keep him on the acid blockers.

Let me tell you, this isn't easy for anyone, but to an 11 year old boy it's pretty devastating. He has to have gluten free, dairy free, soy free, peanut free, and sesame free foods. He's allergic to corn, but the Dr. said he could have that in small amounts. I'm still trying to cut it as much as I can, so that he can be healed. Go take a look at labels and the majority has at least one of those foods in there. We try to have a pretty healthy diet, but of course he's the picky one who doesn't like salad, or even many veggies. Eating out will be a challenge...simple cooking can be a challenge these days. I am blessed to have a grocery store here with a large isle full of allergy free foods, even if they are completely outrageously priced, so I can still make him some of his favorites like pizza (no cheese) and pancakes with maple syrup.

We are really going to try and keep his diet as close to whole foods as we can. I don't want this to get progressively worse as he gets older. I have been able to find some great groups on Facebook that have helped me understand this confusing disease a little bit more. I feel bad for him because he feels like this is just something he has to deal with for the rest of his life. They say don't let these things consume you, but this is my child's food and his health. I will always let that consume me, because if I don't help him live with this, then who will? Of course it could always be worse. There are so many kids that have to deal with a lot more than this.

I will keep you posted on how this goes. He's been almost completely food allergen free for just about a week, and we go back for another scope on November 14th. Praying we can see a difference! If not, the diet gets restricted even more.

I hope everyone has a great week coming up!

Annual Subscription by ~ A Homeschool Crew Review

With everything in our world turning digital, kids want to be right in the mix. The problem is, it's not safe to just hand over a generic email address to a child and let them go. In this day and age it is so important to keep our kids safe, especially while using anything to do with the Internet. It is our job as parents to make sure that they have a safe environment to be able to communicate with others, and that is extremely hard to do with the regular email domains. We have had the pleasure of reviewing the Annual Subscription by over the last few weeks, and I have to say, it's been impressive.

What is and what makes it different?

This website allows you to set up an email through them, personalize it, and have some control over it to ensure that they are using the email address safely. Just like they say on their page, "It protects, while giving kids their freedom." Some of the features offered are:

  • Mail Monitoring - This is a really nice feature because it allows the parent to receive a copy of any outgoing and/or incoming email to the child. This keeps the parent in the loop of what's going on.
  • The Mail Queue - If someone that is not in your child's contacts tries to email them without permission, it will be sent to the parent. From here the parent can either let it pass through to the child or reject it. 
  • Time Restrictions - You can restrict the child from getting on at certain times of day or even certain days of the week. You can ground them for a specific time and even add a message that appears when they log in. 
  • Block Senders - This allows you to block specific people that you do not want sending your child an email.
  • Contact Manager - This is where you can add any contacts that you will allow your child to send and receive email to and from. 
  • No ads -  There are no ads, so you will never have to be concerned with your child seeing something inappropriate. 
  • GPS Tracker -  If your child has the free mobile app, you can get a historical location of where your child has been, as long as the GPS is enabled.
  • Custom Mailbox Folders -  Your child can create and organize their mail.

With the annual subscription you are able to set up not just one email address, but SIX so that way you are only paying one yearly fee which is $38.95.

The options with this program make it easy to get it set up, and it also lets you personalize each child's account.

How did we use it?

I set up an account for both Edyn and Gavin. I knew Edyn wouldn't use it much, but I wanted to see the differences in a "child's" account and a "teen" account.

Set up was extremely fast and easy. There is a Parent log in, and then after you create each child, they will have their own log in.

From the Parent log in, you are able to set each child's account with the restrictions that you feel that child needs. Maybe one child is older and you want to give them a little bit more freedom. You can do that for each child here. They will ask you what you want on each safety setting. For example, do you not want them to be able to receive attachments? It's simple to turn that on. Do you want a copy of each email? Turn that on here. It's customizable for each child. I also set up contacts in here. I added my husband and I, and Gavin had a lot of fun emailing his dad at work!

The child's log in gives them access to the mail they have received and is where they will send their emails from. Gavin and Edyn both had the option to change their dashboard so that it gives it a little character. Gavin chose this cat, who is pretty cool.

If you look at the email, you can see that they even give them some emojis and they can change the font, size, and color. It's not just boring old black and white. They have options.

Another thing that I liked was that I could change Edyn's email address to end in, rather than It's up to you how you want to end it.

What did we think?

I think this is a fantastic option for anyone who wants to give their child an introduction in the world of email. It's easy, safe, and honestly a good price for your peace of mind. If you are looking for something like this and are ready to take the next step, the Annual Subscription from will not disappoint!

The Pray-ers / Book One Troubles by CTM Publishing Atlanta ~ A Homeschool Crew Review

I have always loved reading books, and especially anything Christian fiction. I was really excited to find out that I would be reviewing The Pray-ers / Book One Troubles, written by Mark S. Mirza, and published by CTM Publishing Atlanta.

About the author:

Mr. Mirza led a men's prayer ministry at First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He ended up forming Common Thread Ministries to help people and churches with prayer.

About the book:

The Pray-ers / Book One Troubles is a fictional book. It's a little over 350 pages, but some of that is references and explanations about the book. This book was like no other book that I've read before. It covers 3 different time periods, which are First Century, 19th Century, and Current Day. We follow 3 different people throughout the book and take a look into the problems they are facing and learn how prayer can change the situation they are in.

What did I think?

Well, I started out reading this book with my kids ages 14 and 11. About 50 pages in, I could tell they were completely lost. They unfortunately weren't enjoying it, and they also didn't understand it. My 14 year old daughter really didn't like me reading it out loud because it made her feel almost a little guilty about giving demons any credit at all, even if it was talking about how awful they are in a book. With that being said, Mr. Mirza does take the time in the beginning of the book to explain why he gives the demons names and a visual of them, but that he wants us to not focus on the demons and remember that we are victorious with Christ. He even goes on to explain why he doesn't capitalize their names. His intentions with this are good, but I just don't think that it would be a good read for kids unless they are quite a bit older.

The second issue I had with the book and reading it aloud was that it really needed an editor. All of the mistakes made it very hard to follow, at least for me. Also, the way the book jumped around was quite challenging. It would flip between the conversations of the angels and demons, and also the eras so it was just a bit confusing at times.

Throughout the book you can see the issues the characters face and how the demons react versus how the angels react. While Mr. Mirza gives us a clear image of the demons and how vile they are, he also gives a clear picture of just how mighty the angels are. Hael, a guardian angel, was my favorite character. He was funny at times, but also so strong and faithful. We can imagine a very tall and mighty angel sitting next to us and fighting for us. He wanted to intervene in the life of the man he was guarding, but couldn't because he knew God wanted the man to learn something.

The demons would also intervene with the humans, and just like I have always imagined, they would whisper doubts in their ears so that they would question themselves.

Like I said, it is a fiction book, but the purpose of the book is to teach about prayer. This was done by the characters praying for the situations that they were in, and by praying scripture. One thing that I really appreciated was at the bottom of the page, the scriptures being used in the story were listed so that you could go and read the actual scripture.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction. Although, this book wasn't really my favorite style, and could really benefit from an editor, I think that it does have a lot to offer in the teaching of prayer.

Easy Fall Craft with Edyn

A few days ago, we were done with our school work, and Edyn wanted to work on decorating her room for fall. I wish I could say that fall is in the air, but in Texas it is still very much summer here. The highs have cooled down to around 95 so I guess we can pretend right?

Well she wanted some fall decor, and I suggested that she try and make something. I knew that if she put her mind to it, and did a little research she would find something fun!

She got on Pinterest, and found a great craft that used all things that we already had around the house.

What you will need:
*hot glue gun - you don't have to have one

This is really simple to do. She traced out the letters F-A-L-L onto her cardboard. You could use a stencil for this, but she did it by hand so that it would be even more her own creation. She then chose a pretty dark red yarn to wrap the letters in.

Wrap the yarn around to completely cover the cardboard. 

When you're done, you can just tie the end on the back or use a small dot of hot glue to secure it. 

That's it!

This was super simple and will last a long time! I think it looks precious too. You could do any word and the color choices are endless. I think she's going to try a pumpkin and a leaf next!

I hope everyone has a fantastic week, and let me know if you decide to try this fun and easy craft!

Birthdays and hospital stays

I guess you can call this a weekly wrap up even though it's a little more than a week, and what a week it was. I am just now able to sit down and even make this blog post.

Last week, well a week and a half ago now, was my 40th birthday. Yay. No really, it was a good day. My wonderful husband surprised me with a new refrigerator, stand up freezer, and then a kitchen aid mixer. I get so excited over anything to use in the kitchen. We've needed a new fridge for years, but didn't want to spend the money on it. Well it just got to be the time that we had to do it. My lettuce was freezing, and ice cube lettuce doesn't make a good salad. It's so beautiful, and for the first couple of days, I just kept starting at it. It's like angels singing from the heavens every time I open it. Well after having it for a grand total of 4 days, Edyn turns around very quickly in the kitchen with her skateboard in her hand, and puts a small dent in it. I almost cried. I mourned by beautiful pristine refrigerator. I'm over it now...well for the most part...except when I walk into the kitchen and see it. Well maybe I'm not over it, but it was an accident, and 10 years from now, I will appreciate that dent right?

I have also been wanting a deep freeze for years. I never seem to have enough space in my freezer. I like to also make things and freeze them for later. Breakfast burritos, broth, soup, etc. I like to have things that are easy to pull out when I don't feel like cooking. Well you have to have space for all of that. Sorry, no pic because it's in a weird spot in the garage and I can't get a good one.

The Kitchenaid mixer has always been a dream and recently, in an effort to make even more things from scratch and not used any boxed craziness, I decided that I want to start making our own bread. The problem was that I have trouble mixing all of that dough up by hand. We decided that we would go ahead and add the mixer to our appliances that we bought. It's a long term investment, and I'm hoping this thing last years and years to come. Isn't she pretty? Her name is Kit and she mixes the bread dough like a champ. Thanks Kit.

So now this brings me to the not so great part of the week. Last Monday on Labor Day, Gavin said he was going to go take a bath in our bathroom. He wasn't in there long, but he runs out and tells his dad, who is painting our living room at the time, that he swallowed a plastic piece to a toy gun. Well what it actually ended up being was the top part of a water gun that holds the water in. We tell him that he's fine and he will poop it out. He just was never "right" after that. He was afraid to eat because he said it felt stuck. I tried to assure him that he would be fine, but he kept saying that it felt stuck. So, we decided to take him to urgent care. They took an X-ray and said that they couldn't see anything, but that he was worried it could be stuck in his esophagus and he should go to the ER and get a CT scan. Soooo, we headed to the ER. We were only there a few minutes, and they told us that he had no symptoms of having anything lodged in his esophagus. I just took what they said to heart and took him home like they suggested. After we got home, he still wouldn't eat, but we assumed it was because it could be scratched. The Dr said that it could feel that way. He decided he wanted to go to bed because he wasn't feeling good, so I laid down beside him and he went to sleep. I had to wake him up at noon the next day. I tried to get him to eat, almost forcing him to, and he said it was scratched and he didn't want to. As the day went on he got lethargic and just wanted to sleep. I told my husband we needed to bring him back. He would try and drink water or eat something as simple as applesauce, and almost regurgitate it back up. Something wasn't right and he said he didn't feel normal. So back to the ER we went. This time a different doctor told us he needed a scope, and called the hospital and set us up with a wonderful pediatric GI doctor. He said head to the hospital and they will be waiting for you. Sure enough, they took him into emergency surgery. I waited anxiously for 30 minutes to hear from him. It was Gavin's first surgery so I was a little concerned. He came out and sure enough, Gav had that piece of gun lodged in his esophagus. It was WAY bigger than what I though it was. The other thing is, and I guess this was all a blessing in disguise, is that they found out that he has an esophageal disease. See sometimes he would say his food felt stuck but would eventually go down. I always thought it was because he didn't chew good enough. It's caused by food allergies. He's on Protonix now and we go to the dr next week to see what the allergy testing he ordered says. I'm praying that if he's allergic, that it's a simple fix with diet. They ended up keeping him over night which was good, but of course we didn't get any sleep that night. And...the next day my hubby had to leave for a business trip to Chicago, so it was just one of those weeks altogether. Ugh.

So that was our "fun" last week. I'm really praying this week is better. I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I'm ready for the weekend!!

Exploring Creation with Astronomy, 2nd Edition by Apologia Educational Ministries ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

Gavin has always enjoyed anything Astronomy. I can remember him from a very early age asking questions about the planets and stars out in "space." I was so excited to be able to review Exploring Creation with Astronomy, 2nd Edition by Apologia Educational Ministries because I knew he would love it!

If you're part of the homeschooling world, or even if you're not, then you have probably heard of Apologia Educational Ministries. With them being the #1 publisher of creation based science and Bible curriculum, it's hard not to know them. Author Jeannie Fulbright and Damian Ludwiczak, an engineer for NASA, teamed up with Apologia to create the 2nd Edition of Exploring Creation with Astronomy.

What did we receive for this review?

We were very blessed to receive what we did for this curriculum. They didn't leave anything out!

  • Astronomy 2nd Edition text book - 216 page textbook that is very well put together. Vibrant colorful pictures throughout the book make it easy for the child and parent to stay engaged.
  • Astronomy 2nd Edition Notebooking Journal - The perfect companion to the textbook with its full color pages and activities. It's also spiral bound to make it super simple to use. This journal will have everything you need to complete the experiments and assignments. This book is for grades 3/4 to grade 6. 
  • Astronomy 2nd Edition Junior Notebooking Journal - This is also a full color spiral bound journal that provides everything needed for assignments and experiments. This one is geared for K-2/3 grade depending on your child's writing level
  • Astronomy 2nd Edition Audio CD - This audio CD, read by author Jeannie Fulbright, is perfect to be able to listen in the car, or just follow along in the book. 
How did we use this in our school?

I decided that this was going to be Gavin's complete science this year. It is so much fun and we have loved it so far. Apologia never disappoints!

First of all I want to talk about how this is set up to be used with the Notebooking Journals. At the beginning of the Notebooking Journals, they both have a suggested daily schedule. This makes it much easier to plan out your lessons. You can do them as in depth as you want, or skip a few things here and there, although I doubt you will want to. The daily lesson breaks it down for you so that you know what text you should be reading that day, and also what activities you should be doing in your journal. It also lists the activity you can do if you order the additional science kit. We didn't have that but it wasn't hard to find alternate activities to go with the lesson.

Each chapter, or Lesson, is broken down into each planet or part of space that it's covering.

  • Lesson 1 - What is Astronomy
  • Lesson 2 - The Sun
  • Lesson 3 - Mercury
  • Lesson 4 - Venus
  • Lesson 5 - Earth
  • Lesson 6 - The Moon
  • Lesson 7 - Mars
  • Lesson 8 - Space Rocks
  • Lesson 9 - Jupiter
  • Lesson 10 - Saturn
  • Lesson 11 - Uranus
  • Lesson 12 - Neptune
  • Lesson 13 - The Kuiper Belt and Dwarf Planets
  • Lesson 14 - Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel
We start by looking at our Daily Lesson. We will open up our books and either I will read the text for the day, or we turn on the CD. It is such a nice option to have that since you know sometimes us homeschool moms lose our voices from reading so much! After we are done reading, we will look at what activities we have for the day. This is both of our favorite part!

When you get to the Notebooking part, there are so many different activities for your child to do. You can either do them all, or only do a few. It's completely up to you to see how much time you want to spend in it.

Gavin has enjoyed all of the activities he's done so far. There are mini books, crossword puzzles, copy work pages and so much more!

He has also had a lot of fun with experiments. After the first Lesson about Astronomy, they got to do a fun activity using balloons to make the model of all of the planets! He had a lot of fun doing this one.

What did we think?

Of course we love this program. Everything is laid out so nicely, and user friendly. That is such a blessing to busy homeschool moms who want to have some fun in science. Most of the experiments can be done with household items or things that are really inexpensive! I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a curriculum that guides you along, but is also easy enough to be hands on. If you are interested in something like this Exploring Creation with Astronomy, 2nd Edition by Apologia Educational Ministries is perfect for you!

CHSH Download Club by ~ A Schoolhouse Crew Review

Have you ever found a website that you never even new you needed? I was chosen to review CHSH Download Club by and this has proven to be a real treasure! I am always searching for wonderful resources to add a variety of things to our homeschool, and the CHSH Download Club has been so much fun to use!

What is CHSH Download Club?

Just so you know, CHSH stands for Christian HomeSchool Hub. Perfect name for this site! You can rest assure that there won't be any questionable content here. We were lucky enough for this review to receive one full year of access to their site and all of the awesome content there!

There are so many aspects to homeschooling, and one of the things I love, is printable worksheets. What I don't love, is searching the Internet for them. CHSH Download Club makes finding a worksheet for almost anything in any subject very simple.

Lynda Ackert created CHSH in 2010. She began her career as a public school teacher but decided to homeschool her own children when it was time. She discovered a love and passion for creating educational materials for teachers and homeschooling parents, and so this community was born.

CHSH is chock full of downloads for every age K-12, and also every subject. The layout for this website is simple and easy to use. It is categorized by subject and also age/grade level. This makes finding what you need quick and easy!

There really is something for everyone here. Some of the subjects included are:

  • Bible Related Resources - Here you will find everything from copy work to notebooking, flash cards and memory verses
  • Languages - Spanish, French, Italian, and ASL
  • Arts, Music, & Crafts - Art and Music Instruction, plus Knitting, Embroidery, Quilting, Carpentry, and more.
  • Language Arts - Wrting, Reading, English, and Spelling
  • Math - Math for every grade
  • Science - pretty much anything Science you can think of
  • Social Studies - Everything from Geography, History, and Government to different time periods
  • Electives - Architecture, Character Studies, Social Issues and Safety Education, and Jewish/Israel history
  • and Health - Everythig from general and dental health to body systems
How did we use the Christian HomeSchool Hub?

This was the easy part for me. First off I have to mention this awesome calendar on the home page.

I love how you can go to this calendar every day and it will tell you something that happened on that day in history. You can even send it to your personal calendar! This is such a great feature for this site and great for what I call "Good Morning" discussions. Just a bit of something to talk about first thing in the morning.

I honestly was so over whelmed with the wealth of things I could download it was hard to decide where to start. Like I said before, the layout is so simple that it's very easy to find what you're looking for, plus some! We decided to go ahead with some Daily Geography lessons that we could find. I was a little disappointed though because some of the links weren't working. I'm not sure if it was just for me, or on the site. Either way, it was not a deal breaker because I just moved on to something else.

With Edyn being in high school, we were wanting to add in some Shakespeare. We found a great literature study that we are doing for Shakespeare, and we were also able to print out Romeo and Juliet! She is going to study about Shakespeare for awhile and do some notebooking on him!

We are also using some wonderful studies for September that I've already printed out. I found a great Johnny Appleseed study, and also some worksheets with a lesson to go over 9/11.

These few things are not even scratching the surface with everything that's available to you. I even saw entire English courses for High School! I am going to be checking those out as well!
