“Learning can only happen when a child is interested. If he’s not interested, it’s like throwing marshmallows at his head and calling it eating.” ~ Katrina Gutleben

 — Welcome —

 

Grab a your favorite beverage, pull up a chair, and make yourself comfortable. My name is Stephanie. I’m mom to two, mostly grown, always homeschooled, sons. Lover of YA literature. History geek. ENFP. Enneagram Type 9. Photography buff.

I don’t have a brand nor am I trying to develop one. I started this blog over 10 years ago as a place to document our homeschool journey. Now as I find myself in a period of transition, I find myself wondering where I want my life (and this blog!) to go next. It’s as simple as that.

In looking for an underlying theme to my writing (and to my life), I keep coming back to the idea of seeking understanding. I believe that it is a desire to understand, both ourselves and others, which is the key to making this world a better place.

“LEARNING CAN ONLY HAPPEN WHEN A CHILD IS INTERESTED. IF HE’S NOT INTERESTED, IT’S LIKE THROWING MARSHMALLOWS AT HIS HEAD AND CALLING IT EATING.”
