Stuff We Like: : 10.28.16

home|school|life's Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources.


  • VOTING!! We love voting!! I’m fortunate to live in a county that holds early voting in all the library branches, so last week I was able to pick up some holds AND support democracy in the free world by casting my vote!  Please remember to get out and vote!


Around the Web

  • Much to my daughter’s chagrin, I have only seen a handful of Gilmore Girls episodes, but even as a newbie to the series I find this trailer for Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life utterly delightful. Also utterly delightful?  All of the male commentators I’ve seen on various sites who were exposed to Gilmore Girls via sisters (“just walking through the living room I’ve seen every episode at least twice”) or significant others (“my fiancee said we had to watch the entire series before the wedding”) and are now squeeing with joy over the new episodes.

  • I may have mentioned that I’m a teensy bit excited about Disney’s Moana.  I almost wish they’d stop putting out new clips because SERIOUSLY, I CAN’T BE ANY MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS MOVIE THAN I ALREADY AM.  But if you feel you must entice me with Dwayne Johnson’s singing voice, I guess it’s ok…

  • This is fine, I suppose, but if you try to get Branwell a co-credit on Wuthering Heights I’m out of here: Christopher Marlowe Credited as Shakespeare’s Co-Writer


Reading List


At Home

  • Great Performances: Hamilton’s America is running on a loop in the living room.  (Stream it on if you missed the broadcast.)

  • Our new favorite show (and the only thing I’ll turn Hamilton off for): The Good Place starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson

  • Hey, I’m on the Twitter!  (Is that what the kids are calling it these days?)  Of course, my children now say that all the cool people are on Instagram and Snapchat, but I think I’ll try to figure out to how to tweet before I jump on anywhere else.  Follow me @SuzyRez.
