Review of CrossTimber Name Meaning Gifts

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

The latest Crew Review opportunity introduced me to CrossTimber, a company that designs and prints meaningful, personalized gifts. Although their products seemed nice, I wasn’t sure what to order. Then a wedding invitation arrived in the mail. Would an 8x10 Plaque print make a good wedding gift?

In addition to the name plaque, I also received an AmazingName Print Activity Set—a personalized activity book for a child. Since the product appeared to be geared towards younger kids, none of my teens were interested. Instead, I ordered one for my niece.

Review of Homeschool Code Academy - Python for Beginners

When I saw an opportunity to review an online programming course from Homeschool Code Academy, my eyes lit up. I immediately signed up for a free preview of Python for Beginners: Learn Coding at Home so we could check it out. After I described the course to my tech-savvy husband, he encouraged me to review the course if one of our twin daughters was interested. To gauge their interest, I watched a couple of course preview videos with the girls.

Although the twins seemed to like the course format, neither could fully commit to using it this semester. Rather than volunteering to write a complete review, I offered to look over the course, try a few lessons, and blog about it.

When a wedding invitation arrived in the mail, I was excited for my cousin-in-law, Cyndi. She was marrying the man she fell in love with eight years ago. My husband and I debated whether we could make the trip to Arizona to attend this momentous event. Thanks to frequent flyer miles and low airfares, we made it work.

What is it like to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic? Tag along and see for yourself!
