Hey there, Mamas!
This blog is an honest-to-goodness labor of love that has been on my heart for the last several years. My husband can attest, it’s become our little joke for me to say, “Ok, I’m going to start a blog.” And then nothing happens. This has been going on for literally years. I’ve constantly pushed the thought right out of my head. However, at the beginning of this year, I had a powerful nudge that left me feeling like I could no longer not do it.
I truly don’t know if this is all just for me or for someone else, but I’m showing up, and I’m going to do this! I’m so confident that it’s something I need to do. I am excited to be putting these thoughts together and sharing my passion that was, at one point in my life, an “I will never do that.” kind of thing. Well, never say never…
I am a chronic researcher/learner by nature. I want to know everything, try everything, read everything, and learn whatever there is to know. I want to share all of that with you! My hope is, that through this, some mama out there will find an answer she’s been looking for. Or maybe a possible solution she hasn’t tried yet. Or maybe some encouragement that she is doing just fine in her role as a mother. I’ve become so passionate about all things homeschool and also motherhood, and I just want to soak in everything I can.
Over the coming weeks/months, I am going to be sharing anything and everything I can about our homeschooling journey. I have had so many people reach out over the last few months with so many questions. I’m hoping I can answer those questions here. I will be sharing things that have worked and things that haven’t. The systems we use, and the systems we have failed at. What our daily schedules and routines look like, and what homeschool looks like in our home. I’ll share which curriculums have worked for us and which haven’t, as well as the extreme polar opposite learning styles of my school-age children and how we deal with that.
We aren’t a perfect family, and my kids are CRAZY. We have an 8-year-old boy, 6-year-old girl, 3-year-old boy and 1-year-old boy. There is never a dull (or quiet!) moment in our house. I won’t pretend to be the picture of perfection because we absolutely are not, and I honestly wouldn’t even know how to fake that. I want to share with you the struggles we’ve had and things we have learned along the way. I am going to do everything I can to make this as authentic as humanly possible. I often find myself being bombarded with moms who seem to have things all together so much better than I do, and I find myself constantly searching for moms I can really relate to. Moms that really seem to get it. I hope you can find that here.
So follow along if you’re interested! I would love to have you join me!
