Welcome! I’m so glad you are here! I hope you will take the time to subscribe so we can stay in touch. (You’ll also receive a gift from me!)
I’m Sallie, teacher by training turned writer and now homeschooling mom of Caroline. My passion is to provide products, encouragement, and information that helps others discover and do what works with their children. I also write about living a cozy life as a highly introverted person.
This website is my home online and where I devote my time. After much trial and error with social media such as Facebook and Twitter, I made the choice to not spread myself too thin and base my interactions here. So I welcome comments and do my best to respond to them in a timely manner. Please join the conversation. We can all learn a great deal from each other so please share your insights and knowledge in the comments of posts that resonate with you.
This site is best viewed from a laptop or desktop computer for two reason.
One, because there is a lot here!
But even more importantly, because I have designed it to be a beautiful, restful place online. So while it is mobile ready and responsive if you prefer your phone, desktop gives you the best overall experience.
I have an extensive shop full of fun learning materials that are especially grouped around themes. Thematic learning is a powerful way for children to learn. I am in the process of greatly expanding this part of my website so be sure to subscribe to keep track of the great paid and free resources I add in the weeks ahead!
David and I met online via AOL back in the days when no one knew anyone who had married someone they met online. We met and married in eight months to the shock of many. Twenty years later we’re still best friends and happily married. Not only that, we like each other enough to work together from home. 😀
ten eleven years old and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help her discover the exciting world of reading, history, science, nature and everything else! We’ve progressed through an interesting journey with her as an only child, high need infant, highly-sensitive and spirited child, and now recognizing that she is a twice-exceptional gifted child.
I taught in a variety of schools including private, Christian, Classical Christian, and charter. My educational philosophy has evolved a great deal, especially since becoming a mother to the child I have. Our ever-evolving approach is some form of parent-organized, interest-led relaxed homeschooling that borders on unschooling.
I welcome emails, but please understand if it takes me a bit to get back to you. I’m a wife, mom, homeschooler, and business owner. I also like to sleep. 🙂

I love to sit by the fire and read. It is my happy place.
I’m a Tri Delta (who fits none of the sorority stereotypes!)
I like old-fashioned things and so I’m a reader of Grace Livingston Hill (Some of my favorites are The Christmas Bride, The Prodigal Girl, The Substitute Guest, Beauty for Ashes, April Gold, and The Honor Girl.)
