FREE Homeschool Graphic Design Course

My daughter has been pursuing graphic design and we recently got her a graphic artist pad.  I was looking for a course on Graphic Design for homeschoolers and found one that is essentially free if you follow these steps:

Go here to sign up for a free trial of PureFlix and you will get a 3-month, free trial to SchoolhouseTeachers.com.  Then, once you sign up there, you can download the Graphic Design course for free!  It retails online elsewhere for $35, so this a great deal!

Schoolhouse Teachers also has tons of courses from Preschool-12th grade!  I used to have it years ago and actually forgot about it.  Now, it has a lot more courses that look great.  Well worth the 3-month free trial!

You also get free access to World Book through Schoolhouse Teachers and a lot more.  I was glad to have come across this and we enjoy Pure Flix too, so its a great deal all around for homeschoolers!


*After the 3-month trial, if you want to sign up for Schoolhouse Teachers, you get a discount if you are an HSLDA member!

10 Years of Cambridgeshire Academy

I started this blog in 2009 when I started homeschooling my daughter.  I tried to catalog a lot of the journey with her from Kindergarten through, currently, 9th grade!  It is proving to be a great tool for us as I look back on what we did now that I'm starting to homeschool my son as well.  It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since I started our homeschool website!

My son is gifted, so we are doing things differently, though we are still using the same curriculum as we did with my daughter - I'm adding in more to fill out his craving for learning.  We will probably finish the phonics program (4th grade level) by the end of this year, and he is only Kindergarten level.  He is immersing himself in everything he can at the moment, he is like a sponge and doesn't seem to ever get full.

I hope to continue to catalog my daughter's journey through high school and then my son's entire school journey.  One of these days, I would like to update old links from posts over the past 10 years but that isn't a big priority right now, though I have done some.

Thanks to my readers, both new and old!  Here's to a great 2019!
