In my mind, everything is 10 minutes from my house. All of our favourite libraries are a 10-minute drive. Last year’s science coop was 10 […]
We decided to homeschool because it allows us to live life as slowly as we’d like. We’ve chosen a Charlotte Mason-based curriculum that allows us to focus on great books, handicrafts (okay, knitting), and time outdoors.
I wanted to learn French when I was in school. I mean, I really wanted to learn French. I took French all the way through high school, right up through (the now defunct) Grade 13. At the time, I thought I was okay at it. I got good grades. I could read French novels and […]
A quick FYI: all the prices in this post are in Canadian dollars, and none of them include tax. Also? I’m an overtired homeschooling mom and I’m all too capable of making mistakes; please double check all the information for yourself before purchasing your own printer. So this is a post about my printer, of […]
This post contains affiliate links. It’s Yarn Along Wednesday where I share what I’m knitting and what I’m reading. Last week I knit maybe two rows on my cardigan. Maybe.

Apparently my blog gives people the impression that it’s nothing but sunshine and roses here, which is kind of hilarious. Life is not perfect. I generally suck at it. There is not a day that goes by […]
This post is for letter “J” in the 2016 ABCs of Homeschooling Through the Holidays series on Life of a Homeschooling Mom. Click here to see all posts. It is HARD to stick to the lesson plan when the holidays are in full swing. Sometimes I’m so preoccupied with Christmas planning that days come up where I […]
I read that chronically late people tend to be optimists. This makes sense, of course. We’re always positive that we will get where we need to go with no disruptions at all. What’s that? I need to be across the city for our lesson in 10 minutes? No problem! What? No, of course I’m not in the […]
Homeschooling mom of three. I'd knit if I could find my yarn.
