Beginning Our Homeschool Journey

This is something I've been looking forward to for a very long time. It may sound funny, but even before I had children I always knew I wanted to homeschool my kids someday. It was an opportunity I wish I had growing up. I struggled through school because I was insecure, afraid to ask questions , and if I couldn't do something absolutely perfectly, I didn't want to try at all. High School was just survival mode.

The whole reason I get to do this is because of my family and for that, I think it’s important to introduce you to them! A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (Colorado)… Dave and I were introduced to each other by my younger brother. Dave likes to say that as he shook my hand in the Apple store, he thought to himself, “This is the girl I’m going to marry.” Six months later and we were married! There was just a comfort and a familiarity that I’ve never been able to properly put into words. Anyone else have that? I mean, don’t get me wrong, we have plenty of differences, but when it comes down to it…. he’s just always felt like home. He is passionate, artistic, honest, absolutely hilarious and the hardest worker I know. He’s my best friend and made my dreams come true by givi...
