Hey there!

Whether you are brand new to homeschooling or just looking for some new ideas, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m a single mom to an eight year old, homeschooling and working full time (and part of that time full time in college) since Pre-K.

Grab something to drink, get your mouse ready to click around, make sure your printer has ink, and let’s go!

Add A Daily Doodle to Jazz it Up

Homeschooling year round is hard. I say that with a mixed bag of honesty. Our style is a little bit of this, with a little bit of that. We finished-ish Blossom & Root.

This year, I decided upon an at home, online option,… Continue reading Year 2: End of Year Testing

Lately, we’ve been on a HUGE struggle bus. Do we continue with the homeschool thing or is public school the way we need to… Continue reading Learning Parts of Speech

Johnny Appleseed & Tall Tales

For the first few weeks of Blossom & Root, we focused on Tall Tales, including Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyon, Pecos Bill, and others.

I could have sworn that Disney Plus had American Legends, but I could… Continue reading Johnny Appleseed & Tall Tales
