Welcome to my homeschool website & blog!! I hope this site will serve as a way to share our homeschool journey with family & friends, as well as share resources and ideas with fellow homeschoolers.
Our Homeschooling Journey...
I have been married to my amazing husband since 2000, and he is very supportive of our decision to homeschool. I previously worked full-time in the field of social work, up until my son was born in 2004. Now I'm a stay-at-home mom and I'm loving it! My daughter is 12 and my son is 9. They have never been to school in any shape or form, and I feel blessed this has been the case for us up until now. We are in our 7th year of homeschooling & this year my daughter will be attending public middle school for the first time. My son will remain home with me. I have no previous experience with home schooling or teaching children, so I admit I was completely terrified when we first started out. As our journey continues though, my self confidence also grows with each year. I truly believe the key to successful homeschooling is when parents are willing to be patient, resourceful, flexible & can learn alongside their children.
I enjoy sewing, crocheting, and knitting (although I'm not very good at knitting!). I love documentaries, biographies, 80's new wave, and my sweet animals. I love to read, and usually have a couple of books going at once. I really enjoy outdoor activities. I aspire to live simple, but it's a process for sure. I am constantly looking for ways to be frugal and green at the same time. My earnest desire is to one day leave this planet having contributed more than I consumed.
I hope you enjoy my website!!
