About me... and them, too.

I'm Sara-- married to Einstein, and mother of three beautiful and spirited children: Sunburst, Moonshine, and Kitty Bill. Except for myself, I use aliases for my family to honor their privacy. Since this is my space, it seems only right.

We're homeschoolers currently living in the midwest, the Swiss countryside, England. We teach our children using mostly Waldorf Education in an eclectic mix that strives to honor each individual child-- his/her needs, interests, and learning style. It's honestly both the hardest and the most rewarding thing I have ever done.

When I'm not homeschooling the children, I enjoy making things-- knitting, sewing, gardening, cooking, general crafts-- and writing. I have a professional background in art and massage therapy, but none of those things hold a candle to being a mom.

I started this blog in April of 2006 to share our homeschooling experiences with distant family and other homeschoolers. I found so much inspiration from other homeschooling moms that I wanted to give something back. Our journey hasn't always been easy-- from accidents and deaths to overseas moves-- but one thing has prevailed: we're still living and learning together, enjoying each other and growing together. To me, that's what it's all about.

I invite you make yourself at home as you peruse the pages of our lives. It is my hope that you'll find some inspiration here. So pull up a chair, have a cup of tea, and enjoy your visit.

    I so love your blog. When I think of homeschooling, and what it's about, and why anyone should do it...I think of you.
