About Me

Hi, I’m Erin. I’m a stay at home wife and mother of two boys, 1 dog and 8 chickens.  I really never thought that I was cut out to be a homemaker and certainly never dreamed of being a homeschool educator! God blessed me with the first which then led me to the second, through circumstances with one of my children who has special needs. Because of that, a lot of my posts will have a flavor for OT, SEL and raising a child with extra needs. Homeschool has become a passion and a blessing—but that didn’t happen overnight.  I made this blog to encourage other parents who may be walking a similar path. I certainly don’t have all of the answers, but I’d like to share some of my journey with you if you’d like to stick around.
