Meet Rhiannon

Hi! My name is Rhiannon Kutzer. If you’re already singing the Fleetwood Mac song in your head, we’re gonna be great friends.

Should you walk into my house on any given day, you’d probably see me chasing down a half-naked, marker-covered toddler, scribbling math on the dining room whiteboard, changing one of 3,800 daily diapers, or reading aloud while I try to ignore the baby terrorizing our bookshelves.

I use the neo-classical approach with a Charlotte Mason twist to homeschooling, which really ends up being the soak-it-in, read-a-ton, but try-to-delegate-messy-science-projects-to-their-dad approach.

Education has changed drastically since the days when my biology teacher grandfather could leave a “lasting impression” on inattentive students with a chalk eraser.  But as a fourth generation educator, I feel right at home embracing homeschooling as a growing force in the American educational landscape.

Parents, policy-makers, and educators are working to help today’s kids be successful.  My goal is to help parents and parent-educators in that mission.

Where You Can Find Me Online

Connect with me @rhikutzer on Instagram or Twitter.

Aside from the HFC blog, my work has appeared at The Glorious Table ForEveryMom.comCOMMAND Magazine, and others. If you’re interested in hiring me to guest post for your blog or write for your education or parenting or magazine, drop me a note below:

Nice to meet you!

I’m Rhiannon.

You can call me Rhi for short (as in “rejoice”). I’m a fiercely independent homeschooling mom of five, a Navy wife of 13 years, and a creator of various things: articles, a semi-regular 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.

  • PSA: If you were to, hypothetically, pour water in your #instantpot instead of the steel bowl that goes inside your Instant Pot...Then you were to fry the electronics because it wasn’t all the way dry after you took it apart and dried it.

If you were then to buy a bigger Instant Pot to replace the fried one. Then you were to attempt to cook dinner in the new, bigger Instant Pot, using the smaller steel bowl your dear, darling progeny placed in the new, bigger Instant Pot when he was doing chores.

Just. I mean. IF you were to, hypothetically, repeat this totally logical chain of events, just know that your big, new Instant Pot will start billowing steam out from under the closed lid.

But also, because I am clearly a genius, I definitely figured out what happened. Like super quickly. And without any profanity. And #dinner was saved.
  • #breakfast 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️
  • For all the hard work that this gig takes, sometimes I’m downright #spoiled
  • Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day to all the lovely, strong-as-steel milspouses I’ve been blessed to know thus far. Spent mine enjoying my better half being home, but I’m sending a prayer up for all of you who are flying solo today.

  • I wish y’all could smell it too. Sending you cozy thoughts this Tuesday. #home
  • It’s been 106 days since I got to kiss my sailor. He had submarine operations in the Arctic and surfaced at the North Pole. The kids & I all survived the flu. A global viral pandemic hit while they were non-comms, and our Spring Break turned into the best ever 49 day quarantine in WY. Not really just another underway for this #navyfamily but we’re awfully happy to hold each other again. ⚓️🇺🇸💙❤️🤍
