About

Have you wondered…

Is homeschooling right for me and my family?

How can I possibly do this homeschooling thing?

Can homeschooling really make a difference for my child and, in turn, the world around him?

How can I prepare my kids to meet the culture head-on?

How can I make sure my kids will be leaders, not followers of the culture?

How will changes in education policy or other legislation impact my family?

What can I do to make sure my rights to homeschool and parent as I choose are protected?

What You’ll Find Here

I believe that building strong families through homeschooling can infuse our culture with truth, goodness, and beauty. With this goal in mind, this site is a place of collaboration, commiseration, support, and inspiration.

We’ll talk about homeschooling and family, and how they interact with culture here with:

  • Thoughtful analysis of cultural and legal issues impacting homeschooling families
  • Pragmatic ideas to make your homeschool more successful
  • Inspiration to strengthen your family through homeschooling

So Please Join the Conversation!

I’m so excited for you to join me as, together, we work to build strong families, promote true ideas, act with goodness toward others, and recognize beautiful works in the world around us!

I’m Rhiannon.

You can call me Rhi for short (as in “rewrite”). I’m a fiercely independent homeschooling mom of five, a Navy wife of almost 13 years, and a creator of various things: articles, a monthly newsletter, quilts, furniture, and the occasional knitted scarf. This is the site where I write about our homeschool journey and news and happenings in the homeschool world. more about me.

  • When your 7yo wakes up and wants to bake a Pokémon cake before you’ve had enough coffee, saying “Yes!” Is an opportunity to bring enchantment, independence, empowerment, and fun into what would otherwise be an unremarkable homeschool day of blah.
.
Here are 2 CM principles to accompany, so you don’t break out in hives at the prospect of a kitchen tornado: “(a) The children, not the teachers, are the responsible persons; they do the work by self-effort. (b) The teachers give sympathy and occasionally elucidate, sum up or enlarge, but the actual work is done by the scholars” (vol. 6, p. 6).
.
I had to resist 1) Saying “No,” in the first place. I literally had to say to myself, “Okay, this is what we’re doing today.” 2) The urge to turn baking into a whiteboard lesson on fractions. That would have killed the enchantment quicker than snuffing out a candle. We *may* talk *after* we bake. 3) The urge to correct or do it for her. If the cake fails, it fails, and we will talk about why.
.
That is all, happy Thursday!
