The Ultimate Blog Party

The Party has started and I am late.  As a mom I don't get the opportunity to go to many parties, but wherever I go I definitely don't like to be late.  I think I would rather be a little early and then just hang  out in my car until.  But this party, The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by Janice and Susan at 5 Minutes for Mom is going on for 8 days.  I guess I am not too late in the scheme of things.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I am Martha and the title of my blog is a play on my name and homeschooling.  My family and I live in the Midwest, near the population center of the United States, according to the latest census data.  I homeschool 2 children; my daughter is 10 and my son is 6- he will be 7 later this month. 

On my blog I write about our homeschooling adventures and activities as well as product reviews for the Old Schoolhouse Magazine's Homeschool Crew.  I started blogging last summer in preparation for reviewing for them last year.  So I am still trying to learn. out the fine art of blogging. This has also been the first time I have formally reviewed products.  Even though there was a steep learning curve in the beginning I have had a great time blogging and reviewing this year.  

Sometimes I will also write about general activities or events.  I am also talking part in a Spring Reading challenge.  You can find a couple posts about that under the subject Mom's books in the side.

We are kind of eclectic in our homeschooling methods, but trying to move towards a more Classical Method.  At first, I was intimidated by the thought of a Classical model, but as my children have gotten older I have been slowly move some of our subjects towards this method.   At the same time we also do some interest studies or modified unit studies. I will have to explain what I mean in another post.  

I would love to have more followers and share what we are doing with more people as well as learn from other bloggers and moms.  

Welcome, look around and enjoy.
