the adventure begins…

Hello! Welcome! My first blog post! Thank you for coming by. I have decided to start blogging as a creative outlet for me, to compile my thoughts, ideas, adventures, photography, and document our journey through parenting and …..homeschooling. Yes! We are taking the leap and will begin homeschooling this fall.

One of the main motivations to finally set up a blog, after tossing the idea around for nearly a year, was our decision to home school.  I hope you will join us on this journey of learning and discovery as we find our way. We are super excited, and a little terrified of the adventure ahead.

I sent in our notification form to homeschool this morning. Then we went on a long beautiful bike ride. This gave me confidence as I watched my girls play in the creek, exploring and interacting with nature. We were mesmerized by gorgeous spider webs, what floats and sinks in a rushing creek, and experimented with building a bridge. This is the kind of childhood I want to provide. They squished their toes in mud and laid down in the cool grass. I want to experience many more Monday mornings like this. And so that is one of the reasons we have decided to homeschool. I’m sure you’ll be hearing many more of our reasons in the time to come.

I hope this blog will be a place to share ideas and stories, to be inspired and humbled and to share a joy for life.

Thanks for listening.
