Homeschooling for the win!

Besides being a homesteading family, we are a homeschooling family as well! We started our official homeschooling journey was back in 2007; our youngest graduates in Spring of 2022. We are so thankful for having had the opportunity to homeschool/unschool our kids.

My Helpful Homeschooling Website

While actively homeschooling, I ran the site The Hmmmschooling Mom. It is still available as a reference to check out (and I hope you do!) but I’m admittedly slow to add to it these days as the boys are now off living their adultish lives.

Some of my most popular articles:

Boy Brain: What Moms Need to Know

Anxiety about Homeschooling High School?

Want Independent Homeschoolers? Two Things They Need to Learn

My helpful Homeschooling book

I also wrote the book The Homeschool Highway: How to Navigate Your Way Without Getting Carsick back in 2012 and people still find it to be helpful. It’s equal parts encouragement and reality about various aspects of the homeschooling journey.

I’m often asked if I’m going to write another book now that we are all done homeschooling—a sort of The End of the Homeschool Highway, if you will. It’s possible. Everyone always wants to know how things turn out, so that book may just fly out of me one day, too.

Hey. I’m helpful. 🙂

Until then, know that I’m here to answer your questions, be a sounding board, or give advice about the homeschooling journey. I’m no expert (even though I play one as the Homeschooling Expert Council Member on Jack Spirko’s The Survival Podcast) but I can certainly tell you about our journey and what worked and didn’t work for us and those folks that we hung out with.

Send me an email at [email protected] with Homeschooling in the subject line and I’d be happy to help in any way I can.
