About Me:

Hi again!

I help parents make meaningful at-home learning experiences through play-based learning! Check out my best sellers and most popular downloads below.

It is my goal to provide you with simple, affordable activities to enhance learning at home.

Our Story

We started homeschooling (preschool) by accident.

I was working full-time and I had some major mom guilt. Partially because I felt like I was missing out on his preschool years and partially because we had some pretty big learning gaps & unfavorable behaviors that I was worried about. I knew they were a terrible combination that would just make modern Kindergarten and public school that much harder!

So I did what any worried & determined mom would do. We started doing simple activities at home after work and on weekends. Never in a million years would I have guessed homeschooling would be a part of my parenting journey but here we are.

My son and I are polar opposites. I am a (recovering) type A school teacher & he is a care-free 6 year old boy who is not interested in doing things someone else’s way. It took us almost 2 years of trial & error to get our homeschool rhythm down. I am saying this to encourage you to embrace any school year knowing changes will need to be made and finding your best fit may take some time. Be patient with yourself, your kids, your partner and trust the process.

Starting Out

I went with what I knew and started with a school-at-home model. I planned out a year in advance so I knew where we would be by the end of the year (theoretically). Super proud of my wicked organization and excited to be spending more time with my little guy we dove in!

Our school at home model failed miserably… sigh… and I took some time to “un-school” or deschool myself. That proved to be the best for both of us.

Schooling in the age of COVID

Most families have had less than ideal circumstances for schooling over these past few years.

Some were forced into distance learning or homeschooling (note: these are two different things! Distance learning is a program set up by your school district and monitored by a credentialed teacher.

Homeschooling can be done in many ways depending on your state. Generally a parent is at home teaching their child(ren) the curriculum of their choosing to their child(ren). See HSLDA’s site for more information specific to your state.
