Winner has been emailed.  Thank you everyone for participating.  Be on the lookout for a Target gift card giveaway coming shortly.

I was given a wonderful opportunity from to do a product review of their The World's Most Beautiful Places

The DVD that I reviewed had a sampling of the DVD's that they offer on their website. 

Their website asks: "Why clutter your home with high tech gadgets when you can create a work of living art?"  Then: "Travel the world without ever leaving your home." 

The DVD that I reviewed included scenes from:

* Bali
* California Redwoods
*Costa Rica
* Fall in New England
* Hawaii
*Olympic Rainforest
* Pacific Coast
* Rocky Mountains
* Sacred Canyons of the American Southwest

The DVD was filmed in HD and was an hour long.

My take on it is:

Breath taking scenes!
Makes me want to travel to these areas.

To start with, the DVD picture was crystal clear, and they filmed in some of the most spectacular places.  The showing was so good that you could actually count the layers on the rock formations that popped up on the screen.

I found on most of the scenes that the music was, to sum up in one word: haunting.  But not in a bad way.  It just seemed to "suck you in" to the scene.  It clearly went well with the views that I was being shown.

The sound was also very strong on the DVD.  You could actually hear the ducklings quacking as they are swimming with their Mom (or Dad) and splashing in the water.  You could hear the crickets chirping, and the flow of the water in the rivers and streams flowing.  With the ocean scenes you could hear the water crashing against the rocks.  If you closed your eyes and just listened to the water flowing, you would swear that you were there.  The sound of the waves took me back to our spending time on the lake and hearing the waves come in at night. 

All in all, this DVD really takes you to the places.  It does have a very calming affect on you and is relaxing.  The scenes are great, the music is perfect and I think that anyone would love to ad this to their DVD collection.  Trust me, you do travel the world from the comfort of your own home.

I want to thank HDEnvironments for giving me the opportunity to review this DVD.

If interested in purchasing from them, you can find their website here or listen/view samples of their DVDs:

The "I Can't Do It" From The Dad With Homeschooling

Ever since I mentioned the idea of homeschooling the little one to my husband he has had a deer in the headlight look on his face. 

He still isn't backing me up on the idea 100%, and it isn't because he thinks that I will ruin her for life.  Trust me, that idea has crossed my mind a million times since we have talked about it.  Also, having numerous people tell you that you will ruin her for life, she'll be a loner with no friends, put those ideas in your head and can squash you confidence.

But, he is afraid that I am going to ask him to help out.  He has told me in the past that it is all on me that he isn't capable of teaching her anything that would be worthwhile or things she would want to learn.  I don't think that he realizes that he has been teaching her from day 1.  She loves being with him and listening to him read or going over her letters with her.  Even teaching her a song or two. 

I told him that all he would have to do is have her around when he is doing things that he likes to do.  No formal teaching needed.  She will learn from his actions and they can spend time together.  My little one is 3 and she can pick out a John Deere tractor from a mixture of tractors, she knows what a haybine is.  She is learning about cows, the other night she kept getting her face and arm licked by a calf that was only a couple of weeks old and she loved it, and he was responsible for that. 

Oh, the things he will teach her.  The things she will teach them.  The things that they will learn together

I have faith in you honey, your daughter will learn by your actions and you two will learn new things together.  Just like she and I will, as well.
