You started this homeschooling thing with a cup of caffeine and a hefty dose of "I've totally got this" gusto. You visited HSLDA, listened to every podcast episode, and read all the homeschooling books and blog posts. You invested in the perfect planner, the pretty pens, and dusted off that library card. You researched homeschool philosophies, schedules, and local co-ops.

 

And then you poured yourself a big cup of coffee, sharpened all the pencils, gathered the library haul, and cracked open the textbooks.

 

You were ready to knock this homeschool thing right out of the park.

 

Primed to be the homeschool mom you've seen in your Instagram feed. The one with the gorgeous books and engaged, happy kids. You weren't going to get stressed out or overwhelmed. Homeschooling was going to be a blast.

 

You want a homeschool environment and routine that works for your unique kiddos. You want it to feel good. You want to enjoy that cup of coffee while reading delicious books to your willing, engaged children.

 

But things haven't exactly worked out that way.

 

Instead, your homeschool routine is filled with sibling squabbles, endless interruptions, missing pencils, power struggles, and tears. Your incredible library haul sits unread and the routine you envisioned falls apart before you have your second cup of [lukewarm] coffee.

 

And now your daughter just announced that France is located in New York. Your oldest son doesn't know what grade he's in and your youngest spends more time chewing pencils than writing. And, honestly? You're spending waaaay too much time hiding in the pantry with a bag of Cape Cod potato chips.

 

Every night, once the kids are in bed, you resolve to do it better. It has to be easier than this. There's got to be a better way. But every day feels like Groundhog Day.

 

You feel stuck.

 

You don't know where to go from here. In your darkest moments, when you lay awake at 3 am, you wonder if you're really cut out for this homeschool gig. You fear you're failing your children. That they'll have huge educational gaps. That they'll never get into college. You question whether they'd be better off riding that big yellow bus.

 

You're usually an optimist, but you are starting to doubt your ability to homeschool well. And that you could actually be the calm, confident homeschooler with the happily engaged, curious kids- instead of being constantly plagued by self-doubt, schedule changes and interruptions, and impulsive curriculum switches.


If there was a simple, step-by-step method for encouraging curiosity while checking off all of those academic must-do boxes without the constant second-guessing, crippling overwhelm, and "How the heck do I even get started" syndrome...

 

You don't need the perfect curriculum, the perfect planner, or the perfect schedule.

 

You don't need to remember how to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, the Pythagorean theorem, the dates of the French and Indian War, or how to diagram a sentence. You can relearn all these things together.

 

You were your child's very first teacher. You celebrated first smiles, first steps, and first words together. No one on this planet loves this child more than you, and no one knows this child better than you. No one, not even the world's greatest teacher, wants this child to succeed in life more than you do.

 

But the good news is- you don't need to be the world's greatest teacher to rock this homeschool gig. You need only be a willing sidekick, a joyful mentor, and your child's biggest cheerleader. Just as you've always been. You've been doing this all along, mama. The only thing that has changed is the label: homeschooler.

 

By modeling joyful curiosity and lifelong learning, you can teach your child how to learn anything, from knitting a pair of funky socks, to recording an album, to fixing that leaky dishwasher.

 

How do you model this joyful curiosity and lifelong learning, you wonder? Through delicious daily read-alouds, super-simple unit studies, and educational play.

 

  • Handle any obstacle thrown your way and have confidence that your children are learning well.
  • Stop struggling with analysis paralysis and finally make important changes to your homeschool routine.
  • Quit trying to find the perfect tools and embrace the now, enjoying the moment and learning alongside your children.
  • Stop worrying at 3 am and start enjoying your family's homeschool journey.
  • Raise joyful, curious, and lifelong learners who aren't afraid to think outside the box and pursue passions.

And that's why I'm over-the-moon thrilled to share my 3 tried-and-true methods with you. I promise each of these methods can have an immediate impact on your homeschool TODAY. More joy and less overwhelm, my friends!

Your course has not only improved our homeschool but most importantly it has improved my well-being.  I was struggling to start a solid foundation for our homeschool, I was overwhelmed and a little panicked.  I started your course to improve our homeschool for my kiddos.  But I personally, and unexpectedly received encouragement, support, confidence, courage, and comfort.  Listening to you every morning for the past few weeks has been like a warm hug, and a pat on the back. Thank you.

I have to tell you that honestly the reason we got through the year was because of you. What did we do when life just got too tough? We played games and we read books. Oodles of games. Mountains of books. And it was enough. Surprisingly, it was actually much more than enough, because the rabbit trails and interest-led learning that spawned from that base created many opportunities we may have missed.

Cait's passion for being a champion for the homeschooling parent is evident in the time and care she's put into this project. I love how the course is self-paced and how every lesson within it holds a valuable, "ah-ha" that has helped me shift from feeling overwhelmed and frustrated at time to encouraged and ready to take my children's next topic of interest and turn it into a fun and authentic educational experience for them, without the planning fatigue I've encountered before. Thank you Cait!!"

You don't want to waste another minute worrying about whether you're doing this homeschool thing right, wondering if the curriculum you bought is a bust, or losing sleep due to overwhelm.

 

Homeschooling doesn't need to feel hard or overly complicated. 

 

You can enjoy learning alongside your children. When you do so, you are teaching them how to be joyful, lifelong learners. And you're creating countless memories together!

 

You're building a home they'll want to come home to.

 

I truly believe that there's never been a better time to break from that public school mindset and craft the homeschool of your dreams.

 

I want you to homeschool with confidence, knowing you're raising curious, joyful, lifelong learners who will be ready for anything life throws at them- even a year as weird as 2020!

I was feeling really insecure and ill-prepared for homeschooling, but now I'm excited. Thank you so much! 

Deneen 

 

Strewing and unit studies always look so easy and amazing on Instagram, but then when I do it with my boys and it doesn't look like those other families, I get very frustrated. This course was extremely beneficial. I highly recommend it for every homeschooler, no matter where they are in their journey- newbie to veteran and for any style. For the homeschooler who wants to add more in simply to the rigorous homeschooler who wants to slow down and relax a bit.

I just have to say that this has changed our whole day. My kids are happier, I am happier. There's less fighting and we actually get more "school" done
