Home education is a powerful choice for many families. Over the past ten years homeschooling has become the learning method of choice for a wide range of families from all political, religious and socioeconomic situations.
I’ve tried to group my home education posts in topics that will be most useful for people who use this page. The posts on this page are about general home education topics.
- If you have a gifted/2e child, you will also want to see my Gifted/2e Children Resources page that is filled with posts specifically about those topics. There is some overlap between that page and this, but that page is very specific. I also have a page about 2e or Twice-Exceptional Learners.
- If you are looking for Learning Printables, please visit my shop.
I hope you find encouragement here!

Our Early Home Education Journey
Our homeschooling journey has been full of twists and turns. When I think of where we were when Caroline was four and we were trying to figure out the preschool thing and where we are now… I never would have anticipated any of it! I have written about our journey since kindergarten, but those posts are scattered in curriculum (scroll down) and gifted/2e sections.
