About Me

Who am I? Well, that's a good question. I am Rebecca, mother of four. I grew up in Connecticut and moved to North Carolina after graduating from college. This is where I met my husband. We were married on June 24, 2000.

We knew we wanted to start a family right away, so we did. Our first child was delivered to Heaven in October of 2000 (at 13 weeks gestation). Our other children were born in 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2011. Having the first three close in age was and sometimes still is a challenge. My husband and I knew we wanted to homeschool our children from before they were born. I did continue to work until my second was born in 2003.

When my oldest turned 4 years old, I ordered our homeschool material from Abeka. I taught him that year using the material provided. He even learned cursive at 4 years old. We continued on with using Abeka for the next five years. We still do use some Abeka in our school, but I have begun to branch out and use other curriculum.
I started this blog in 2009, before I knew about Facebook, to keep my friends and family up to date with what was happening in our school. My beginning blog entries were somewhat short, sometimes only one or two sentences. I have started writing longer blog posts and have been able to branch out to social media.

In 2013, I had the opportunity to begin writing reviews for the Schoolhouse Review Crew, a division of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. It was this year that I was able to learn about other curriculum that was available. I was able to use the product and research the company.

You can find my 2013 and 2014 reviews here.

I am now in my tenth year of homeschooling my children and we use different curriculum for different subjects. My boys use Abeka for math, spelling, and history. They use Apologia for science and IEW Fix It for grammar. My oldest son also uses Visual Latin. My daughter uses CTCMath, Abeka reading and history, A Reason for Handwriting, Fix it grammar, home spelling words, and Apologia.
