EDUCATION IS AN ATMOSPHERE, A DISCIPLINE, A LIFE. 

- CHARLOTTE MASON 

While photography is something I'm so passionate about and is a way for be to express my love for art, homeschooling is my calling and I'm so thankful for this journey. This is our 6th year of homeschooling and while I'm no expert, there is definitely some wisdom that comes the longer you're in this journey. My hope and desire is to encourage you and give you a glimpse of this beautiful, messy homeschool life. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The question is not, -- how much does the youth know? When he has finished his education -- but how much does he care? And about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? And, therefore, how full is the life he has before him? - Charlotte Mason

Our homeschool philosophy is a beautiful one. One that is so rich and wholesome. Children learn first through habits and living books -- as we shepherd their hearts to love God and His creation and to be good stewards in all they do. They learn through lots of literature, narration, dictation, copy work, handicrafts, and lots of time outdoors.
