Welcome homeschool mom. I'm so glad you landed here.

And don't worry if you're currently a little freaked out.


We all feel that way sometimes, even the ladies on the internet who have been at this for 13 years. Ahem.


So my hope is that what you find here will bring calm, comfort and confidence.

I'm Kara.


I'm an introvert, an Enneagram 9, and a tea drinker. I love cats, and good books and sparkly lanterns. I do yoga sometimes. I never get the library books back on time. 


At this site I share support and encouragement for worried mamas, and simple homeschool ideas to help homeschool your kids well, without adding anxiety.

Suprised by Homeschooling

I love homeschooling my kids, even though I never planned on it AT ALL.


My oldest wouldn't "sit on the line" during story time at his preschool. It became a whole thing.


And now, I'm just incredibly grateful. 

What Others Say

Kara's site is calm, simple and informative for real life.  I didn't feel like I needed to change everything or that I was inadequate when I finished reading all her blog entries. I didn't feel alone.

Kara's writing is approachable, honest and real. The thing that stands out to me is that she often writes about her family life in a way that goes beyond just homeschool."

Celeste 

I appreciate Kara's openness and raw honesty mixed with humor, and her ability to write like she's speaking personally to her readers. Her posts are such high quality AND infrequent enough that every single one is a must-read-every-word for me.
