My Students!


Grace is athletic. Watching the Olympics while sick on the couch led to her skating in competitions by the time she was 8. Now she enjoys basketball and hitting an occasional three-pointer. She is determined. A talented musician, she enjoys both piano and flute and is looking forward to playing in an ensemble this year. She has a passion for weather and dreams of becoming a meteorologist when she grows up, or a vet! She has volunteered for a local pet rescue and enjoys reconnecting lost pets with their owners. She would like to run a pet sitting business from our home. This will be Grace’s first year of homeschooling.










Lilah is an artist. Creativity runs through her blood. She enjoys making beaded jewelry, printmaking and flower arranging. She is learning to sew. Her goal is to become a baker with her own shop on etsy.com. She bakes both at home and in specialized classes. Her friends and relatives are lucky to sample her treats. A voracious reader, it is nearly impossible to keep a book list for her. She loves magic, fairies and make believe. Her favorite book this summer was Emily Windsnap. Our yard has several fairy houses she designed. She is also a budding naturalist enjoying classes that put her outdoors for as long as possible. Thanks to her efforts with gardening this summer we enjoy fresh vegetables weekly! Lilah has been homeschooling since January 2010 and because her experience was so great, her sister decided to come home and give it a try!

What beautiful children you have! I loved reading about their interests.
To answer your question, I don't have any photography "experience" other than a lot of practicing on my kids! I'm learning as I go and I'm really enjoying it.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
