About Holly’s Adventures in Homeschooling

Hello and welcome! I’m Holly, and I’ve been blogging about homeschooling and homesteading since 2015. My journey with homeschooling started in 2013 when I first learned about it from an article I found on Pinterest. That’s right until 2013 I had no idea homeschooling was a thing. Instantly I felt called to homeschool my children though, so I learned everything I could. Now here I am over 10 years later.

Homeschooling is about more than just an education to me. It’s about connecting with my children, in a world that is so hurried that we often miss connections with others. It’s about preserving the magic and wonder of childhood. It’s about encouraging interest and letting them learn at their own pace.

A huge inspiration for me and my educational planning is Charlotte Mason. I am not a 100% pure Charlotte Mason homeschooler but I do strongly believe in her philosophy of education. We are what I would call Charlotte Mason-Inspired homeschoolers.

My journey to homesteading started as a teenager spending summer days hanging out on my best friend’s family homestead. It’s where I first learned about honeybees, foraging for mushrooms, and how much better herbs taste when they are fresh! I feel like the homeschooling and homesteading communities often overlap. They share a lot of the same principles for slowing down in a busy world. If you are a homeschooler, homesteader or you want to be welcome!
