Everyone who homeschools has their own reasons as to why they homeschool. Some to have the opportunity to disciple their children, some to give them a superior education, some to shield them from the “evils” of the public school system, some it just works better for their lifestyle.

How each family home educates is diverse as well! Unschooling, Classical Conversations, Charlotte Mason Style, workbooks, text books, living books, manipulatives, computer programs… Decisions and Direction in a homeschooling journey can be OVERWHELMING! Hopefully, this blog gives you some insight into how simple, fun, and large family friendly home educating can be ūüôā


This blog is about how we homeschool (obviously).

We have a BIG family, a SMALL house, a BUSY life, and a call to ministry on our lives.

We value teaching our children how  to learn rather than what to learn.

Join us on our adventure as we work out what homeschooling looks like year by year!

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your hearts. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
