Hello & Welcome
Thank you so much for joining me on our homeschooling venture.
*update* 2022 is my 8th year of homeschooling!
I’m staring to feel very seasoned as a home educator. This year I’m teaching grades 5, 3 and K with a preschooler in tow.
I love that I’m at the point of not stressing about every little thing and checking off all the lists. Our year has rhythm, sometimes more academic, other times with more free relaxed days.
Our homeschooling is nature inspired and drawn from Charlotte Mason, Waldorf, with dash of Classics and anything else I find is a great homeschool fit.
We’re relaxed homeschoolers.
We enjoy great curriculum but at a slower pace with many unschooling looking days.
We love secular and literature based homeschooling as well as the Bravewriter lifestyle. Homeschooling has been both amazing and challenging, especially with littles and because I work part-time from home.
Our family lives in a Canadian mountain valley in the West Kootenays of B.C.
We’re ‘that’ homeschooling family with chickens
We also grow food, homestead and enjoy simple living
We try to venture outside as much as we can (which is hard with kids under 3)
Living in a northern climate means months of snow, cold and darkness.
(I’ve tried to embrace hygge homeschooling as much as I can)
A little about me:
My name is Isis, I’m named after the Bob Dylan song. I prefer the outdoors and have a wild spirit. I was born in England (Manchester) moved to France when I was 7, moved to Canada when I was 12, lost the British accent and I’ve lived all over in Canada since. I studied digital media and then environmental biology in University.
What I’ve fallen in love with is homeschooling
I’m book obsessed. Dare I say addicted. I also LOVE planning & daily journaling.
Planning homeschooling and looking up books and curriculum is one of my favorite aspects of home education. It’s also one of the many reasons I created this site. My goal in time is to create lots of printables and resources for you.
I love growing food for our family, I love working from home.
I find balance hard & never allow myself enough self-care to stay balanced.
This is something I’m working on, and something I know most mama’s fail to do which ends up resulting in that feeling of failing at homeschool.
I will honestly say I’ve thought about quitting homeschooling multiple times a month. Having a baby and toddler is hard. Working and homeschooling is hard. JUST homeschooling and keeping up with the house is hard.
Because it’s hard, let’s be there for each other.
