I want to homeschool, but…. I am not smart enough

I want to homeschool but I’m not smart enough…..  This was in my top 3.  Honestly for years I’ve told myself I’m not smart enough for most things. I was a horrible student. I could pull passing grades but I hated every second of my educational experience until I left at the beginning of my […]

I Want to Homeschool But…..My Kids Hate Learning!

  On the first episode of our new YouTube series “I Want to Homeschool But…” I jumped into the #1 thing I see in the messages and emails I receive: I want to Homeschool, But My Kid Hates Learning!  Typically this statement comes from parents who have kids in a traditional school setting and are […]

We Arent’ Who You Think We Are

  From time to time I get less than complimentary comments or messages about what we are doing. Usually from someone’s irate grandparent who feel my kids need to learn for more than 5 hours a week. I’m reprimanded with a “your doing a huge disservice to your kids” and a long list of why […]

I have been chasing “balance” for at least a solid 20 years! Always coming back from the hunt, completely empty handed. I had mapped […]

Havasu Falls

Life was getting a little wonky come September 2016. With a whole new perspective on the education system after some eye opening conversations, books and documentaries I still fell victim to my fear and sent the girls back to school. To top it off I accepted the nomination to become PTA president…because obviously I am […]

Become a Homeschool Hacker

“Don’t they drive you absolutely crazy being home all day?!?!” “ I’m not organized enough to homeschool.” “ I wouldn’t even know what to teach them” Homeschooling really freaks people out! The very thought of being responsible for our kids education seems completely overwhelming and impossible…until you are actually doing it. There is extreme fear […]

Why The 5 Hour School Week?

Here we are in our Mid 30’s and I gotta be honest, I’m just really hitting my stride in life. Luckily with every passing year I feel I get a better grip on who I was created to be. Another moment of honesty: I did not take the easy road to get to this place. […]
