Hey fellow homeschoolers! I am a homeschooling mother of four beautiful daughters, ages sixteen down to 3 years old. We have been homeschooling for 8 1/2 years. I married my high school sweetheart twenty-three plus years ago and had never heard of homeschooling back then. I am so thrilled the Lord brought across my path some homeschooling friends which helped me make the decision to homeschool my children. I absolutely love books, learning new things, and organizing.
I have a passion for teaching my children the very best of what this world has to offer. I love planning for the new homeschool year. I love planning so much that I usually do it again midway through the school year. I get bored with curriculum really easily and like to try new ones out every year. So as you can probably imagine, my bookshelves and supplies are overflowing. Happily, I love to organize my library of books and our supplies regularly.
We also have 2 children with Tourette’s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which makes life and homeschooling an adventure each day. One daughter’s is mild and the other is extremely serious. So we trust God each day for guidance on the best learning and activities to pursue.
My organized homeschool was gradually eroded in 2014. We decided to build our “dream house” with the “ideal homeschool room” included. Although I am now happy with the end product, it was a nightmare to build. (I won’t ever do that again!). So we sold our current home and moved into a tiny apartment. Four months later, we welcomed our fourth daughter into the world. Five weeks later, we moved into our new home (2 days before Christmas). Two months after that, the homeschool room I imagined was full of dusty boxes and looked like an utter mess. I didn’t even want to step foot in that room. Top it all off, the next month my husband was laid off due to the oil & gas prices dropping. (You can read more about that here)
Needless to say, we have been through a lot, but God is always Good and we have been strengthened and achieved more than we could have ever imagined.
I also hold a CPA license (Certified Public Accountant). I consider myself “retired” because that is not my focus anymore. Nevertheless, I strive to help moms with their home businesses with any accounting needs they might have. So you will also find helpful information about finances here at the Organized Homeschool blog.
I invite you to join me on my journey to get my homeschool room, lesson plans, and work at home groove back in order and organized. I pray this blog blesses you and gives you ideas on ways to organize your homeschool as well be successful working from home if you so desire.
