This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

When we were in the midst of planning our PCS across the country I just figured we would enroll the girls into another private Christian school. I quickly found that that would not be the case after researching schools in the area. Tuition was 3x’s what we were paying in WA and we were still keeping our house there at the time. Sure we could have squeezed it and made serious cuts and ate beans and weenies several nights a week, but God had another plan.

I had friends who homeschooled and even my Aunt homeschooled my cousins. I remember staying up until the wee hours of the morning researching curriculum and reading blogs and forums. My friend Elizabeth graciously showed me her Sonlight curriculum and I was hooked.


Homeschooling has afforded our family many opportunities. Opportunities to grow and learn as a family. We didn't start out from the beginning being homeschoolers but I am so glad that God led us on this journey. This year marks our 6th year homeschooling  and we will graduate our first born, Marie, in the spring. While it hasn't always been rainbows and butterflies we are making it work for our families needs and goals. Enjoy your journey and time with your child, as it passes so quickly.
