By enrolling her in a homeschool curriculum this year, we can challenge her and ensure she's actually learning at her own pace. Plus, should we decide to send her to public school later on, they will test her based on her knowledge and ability rather than her age to determine grade placement. Are we getting in over our heads here? Maybe. But we're excited, Sophie is excited, and it's definitely something we're looking forward to.
When choosing a homeschool curriculum, we noticed that most, if not all, are based online. This means that the kids will have to have their own computer for learning. One that looks absolutely fantastic is the HP Envy Touchsmart. Of course, this beauty is available at Best Buy, our go to store for all things tech.

I also love the fact that this laptop offers a touchscreen. This will come in very handy for those young learners that may have a hard time reading all of the computer text, or may not be the best at maneuvering the mouse of using the touchpad.
Also, I'm not going to lie.....I am not spending thousands of dollars on a Mac for a 5 year old. Not gonna happen. Nope. Nope. Nope.
The HP Envy Touchsmart would also be ideal for teens who want to keep on top of their school assignments, but also love to participate in online gaming. The powerful processor, crisp graphics, and exceptional speed would make this laptop perfect for work or play.
