  1. Google–totally our daughter’s favorite research tool. She has learned more from that resource. She’s a curious person and it took so much of the “teaching” off of me.

    I remember always having to carry change with me too. Cellular technology is amazing. When our boys go out on their bikes, they HAVE to take a phone with them. Still looking into a “burner” or pay-as-you go phone rather than using my smartphone.

    I’m trying Evernote….honestly haven’t played with it enough.

    My 13 year old needed to fix his bike the other day. Where did he go? YouTube!

    Curriclick! I’ve gotten so much free curriculum, lap books, etc from them

    Kindle…..just trying to figure out how in the world to use it with 5 boys and ONE Kindle.

    In short, I LOVE your list.

  2. Thanks Shannon! Glad our list was helpful! 🙂
