Our Best Question & Answers

Why Do Y'all Homeschool?

We both attended public school. We never had any inclination we would homeschool until we started having children. The freedom and flexibility in time and what is poured into our kids lives is of the upmost importance to us. So, although we both held careers before becoming mothers- we knew this was the path we needed to take for our families so we could ensure we were the biggest voice our kids heard. Although hard at times, we cherish the years we have with our children at home.

How do you homeschool multiple ages of kids?

Easily put, we use the kitchen table! Homeschooling is a lifestyle for us, and we try and clear steer of just checking off boxes, but see every opportunity as a chance to learn. We really focus on family school, which involves a lot of the same subjects for all ages, with a lot of read alouds from living books.

How did you get started homesteading?

Brittany made a big life change and downsized her family from 2,300sq ft to 900sq ft to live on 7 acres and homestead. She has jumped all in learning all the things as she goes with gardening and raising animals. It's a lot of trial and error, but so rewarding!

Cassey, still lives in the city, and does all she can to homestead in a neighborhood. This includes raising backyard chickens, and now adding to her flock by raising chicks in her garage. She also does a lot of canning, but for her, it doesn't come from a garden, but instead a bulk produce store. Saving money, and putting food away for her family has been so fun for her, until one day she can live in the country!
