I want everybody to know that I’m a person too, not some imaginary voice that the computer conjures up. I have bad hair days, I work hard for a living, I struggle finding my balance in life, and I am definitely not perfect. But, i hope you’ll enjoy following and relating to me and my family enjoyable and spread the word.
Hi there! Welcome to my crazy, wonderful blog about my crazy, wonderful life! I hope you have a wonderful time navigating my blog.
There’s a little snippet about me on the right side of your page and hopefully soon I’ll have a whole page up about me and my wonderfully small family (for now). I LOVE talking to people and I love doing research (nerd, right?) so I’m hoping that I can share my wealth of knowledge about homeschooling, raising children, living on a budget, being nature friendly, and more with the world through this blog and that we can all learn a little bit about life along the way!
If you ever have any questions, comments, suggestions, or just wanna talk- I’m here, I will always be here, and I will do my darnedest to get back to you as soon as possible. Please contact me whether it is emails, comments on blog posts, image or recipe submissions, anything really I’d love to hear/see it. Only be hearing from you, my readers, do I know what direction to take my blog and what you want to read about!
Essentially this is a catch all for anything else that doesn’t have a specific page to home it- it’s my way satiating my OCD, sticky note writing, type-A tendencies that make me want to organize EVERYTHING and make schedules til I go crazy!
As you may have noticed by now, my husband and I have elected to postpone having children until we have satisfied our educational (I have some college degrees and certifications I want to complete still) and career (hubby has some more career ladder climbing to do and I want to start my own business) aspirations. *Enter our personal imaginary applause here for getting our ducks in a row first- here* However, that does not mean that I am not a MEAN researching machine. I want to have most of the kinks, I’m laughing on the inside because I know there is absolutely no way to plan for everything parenthood brings, worked out before all the little Flinstone feet start padding around our wood floors. So this page is still going to be posted on, with a grain of salt I guess, to help other newbies out.
Hi there, welcome to our Unique Homeschool Experience. I use the word unique because no matter what education you believe best or what type you engage your own children in- we have chosen to engage in a unique school in our home. Although we do not have any little ones underfoot yet (and it will probably still be a long time before we do because we have educational and career goals we want to complete before we bring children into the world), we want to homeschool our wonderful children and have thoroughly researched all aspects of this major decision. In lieu of all of this, I have elected to go ahead and post about my research in the hopes that it will help any other newbie homeschoolers as well. One day, hopefully, this page will be filled with amazing posts chock full of our unique homeschool experiences.
It’s no secret that smart spending (and saving) is how the rich get, well rich! In our house I always try, even if sometimes I epicly fail, to be smart about our finances. I hope that by sharing our secrets to staying within our budget but still loving our crazy, wonderful life you will find some diamond in all of the rough!
I’ve always tried to keep my impact on the Earth in mind. In the fifth grade I convinced my science teacher to let us study endangered animals and ways to help them. In middle school I decided that our family needed to keep up with the green movement and spent a whole evening sorting through our household trash cans and sorting everything into recyclable categories. This respect for the natural world has continued influencing me and I hope that it something I will forever carry with me and pass on to our children.
