Hello there, and welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I started this blog to document our journey through this crazy adventure called life—especially trekking through the wild, wondrous adventure of homeschooling. I do not have all the answers over here, but my hope is that this place will be one of inspiration and encouragement for those who stumble across it.
A little bit about me:
Matt and I have been married for 12 years, and have been together since we were 17. He is my biggest supporter and I couldn’t imagine doing life with anyone else. We are both dreamers and creatives, so our time spent together usually consists of talking about what we want to build, create, or change next. We have three daughters, Brynlee (8 yrs) and Annabelle (6 yrs), and Emmy (3). It is such an honor to be their mom. We have a labradoodle, Mochi, two cats Millie and Oliver, and an always changing number or chickens. If you own chickens, you know how chicken math works! Our homestead is a humble quarter acre in Southern California, and we are blessed to call it home.
The reason why I have chosen homeschool for my girls is because I want them to reach their full potential, to explore and discover and ask questions. I want to help them establish a firm foundation in Christ at a young age—to know who they are and whose they are. I never considered homeschooling until I became a mom—I have my multiple-subject teaching credential and planned to use it in the public school system, but God had other plans! Gosh, I am so grateful. Humbled. And excited for this next season!
Hi Seleena, I just found your website, and it’s beautiful! I’m a homeschooling mama myself, and live on a 10 acre homestead in Canada.
Thanks so much Marilyn, apologies for the late response, I just got access back to my website to post and update it 🙂 I would love to have 10 acres of land, do you have an IG account so I can follow you? I would love to see it!
Would you happen to know how common it is for homesteading homeschool families to use computers for their online learning? Thank you and God bless!
Hi Kelly, I think its very common!
