I’m so happy you’re here to follow our adventures in homeschooling. I may not be the picture perfect mom that has it all put together but what I lack in organization I make up for in fun. I’ve always been that mom in a battle with being more organized. I own about 3 notebook planners, an adorable chalkboard organizer hangs on my wall, and I even have an organizing app and you probably guessed it- they’re all blank. Well, I lie, the chalkboard has a meal plan from two months ago written on it that I haven’t erased yet. This is who I am no matter how many times I tell myself this week will be different. I can say though that we may do things differently from the way others do it, but being unorganized works for us. We are the wild Greene’s and that’s how we love it!
When I became a mom at the young age of 20, I never would have thought I’d be where I am right now, a New York girl living in the Arizona desert and dedicating my life to home educating my four amazing kids, but here we are and my heart is incredibly full. I strongly believe in following your child’s interests and introducing topics to them in an organic way. I’m more interested in helping my children learn how to learn than I am in trying to teach them everything they’d learn in public school. I mean how many of us remember cramming a topic for a test and then immediately forgetting everything right after. Yup, that was me too. I’m not about that life for my kids. They only get one chance at an amazing childhood so I want them to live it to their fullest. In this blog, I’ll share our eclectic style of educating and provide encouragement for anyone who is struggling with perfection in parenting or homeschooling. We are changing things up all the time, seeing what works and what doesn’t and if I find things that are a home run I’ll be happy to pass those recommendations on to you!
Anyway, a little about me- I am a total bibliophile, you’ll find piles of books all throughout my house. You’ll even find me sniffing one here or there…don’t pretend like you’ve never done it too. I love being outdoors among trees. This has been the hardest adjustment for me in moving to the desert but I drive to large trees as often as I can. Big, deep conversations keep me going, there’s nothing more awesome than connecting with people in a meaningful way. Believe it or not, I am pretty shy and introverted though, being a parent has pushed me to step out of my comfort zone big time in that department but once you get me talking I can go on and on. Give me a comfy blanket under a tree with a cup of tea and a book and I’m a happy camper. Thanks for stopping by, I’d love to cawfee tawk with you guys anytime so leave me a comment or two.
