Jumping full force into life–we homeschool in between music and art lessons, nature walks, lego-building marathons, park days, light saber battles, filmmaking, and field trips–cherishing the light bulb moments of discovery and embracing our spontaneous life.

Why do you blog?
I blog both to keep a journal of our homeschooling journey and also to hopefully inspire other homeschooling moms. With 8 years of homeschooling under my belt, I feel that I can offer some insight and motivation to new homeschooling moms.

Why do you homeschool?
I taught public school for several years, and I really didn’t even know what homeschooling was all about. I had quite an experience as a teacher, and though I want to “shelter” my kids from all the bad, that isn’t my main reason for homeschooling. I want to have control over what material my kids are taught and I want them to grow up loving to learn and discover. When my oldest started K5, the first day, there was a sign in the hallway leading to his classroom stating that no parents were permitted to enter that area. I knew then that homeschooling was the right thing for us, and we started the very next week.
