I am a homeschooling mom, I have been homeschooling since 1999. I have 3 grown children and 3 who are still under my care in my home. My 4th child was born with Down Syndrome. Raising him as definitely shaped my life and I believe we are all better people because of him.


This is a blog where I share my thoughts and my memories with anyone who would like to read them. Sometimes I may share frustrations, fears and challenges and others might be the simple joys of my day homeschooling my children. It is a place to record a few of our life’s moments and share things that have worked for us in dealing with the challenges of having a son with down syndrome and autism and  the wisdom I have gained by my own mistakes as a veteran homeschooling mom.
