I felt called to homeschool even before my first child was born, and I have never regretted the decision. Yes, there are hard days — but there was a time when I didn’t think circumstances would allow me to homeschool, so I try never take this for granted.
I’ve been a homeschool mom for almost 8 years now!
We enjoy a relaxed Charlotte Mason style of home education, which means (in part) that we adore good literature, nature study, and real-world learning. I’m learning to follow my kids’ interests more, and I love the fact that I’m learning right along with them!
Our school room is smack dab in the middle of our house. It’s what works best for us, although I make a few changes every year as our needs are continually changing with ages and interests.
Last year, my teen went to public high school. This year we’re back to home educating both daughters: Kathryn is now a middle-schooler, and Lindsey is doing a combined junior/senior year.

We’ve recently added two new kids to the equation via foster adoption. Currently, the 5-year-old is in public kindergarten but next year we’ll home educate her as well. Her 4-year-old brother will do a little preschool at home, too; big changes from all our big kid schooling going on right now!
