What is woven homeschool?
I’ll be honest- most of the time I feel like a hot mess homeschool mom with loose threads trailing in every direction. Yet, time and time again, I’ve learned that all those strings are actually being woven together into a beautiful picture. It’s hard to see when it’s in process, but in the end, it’s a delight to look back and see it as a whole.
Woven Homeschool is a place to share what I’m learning on our homeschool journey, but more than that, I want it to be a place where we can learn from and encourage each other.
I have big dreams for this little blog. One day, I hope it will grow to accommodate a podcast, with interviews with people who can help us along our homeschool journey. I would love to have others share their homeschool stories, to help us gain perspective and a sense of solidarity. I also plan to provide affordable, helpful resources to both new and seasoned homeschoolers.
Most of all, I hope Woven Homeschool will be a home for laughter, tears, relatability, and encouragement as we press forward and continue our daily, mundane, sometimes messy, and often joyful homeschool work. Won’t you join us?

My husband Tim and I met during college in 2004. We quickly found ourselves doing everything together, became best friends, and realized if there were ever soulmates, we were each other’s. The rest is history- we got married in 2008 and have been doing life together ever since.
I originally went to school for sacred music, but returned to get my state certification for music education. I even went on to get my Masters in education and started out my post-college life teaching on several levels. I was a K-8 music teacher, a preschool teacher, and a private voice instructor.
Long story short, I got pregnant with our first child relatively early in our marriage. We decided I would stay home with him during the day, and only continue teaching privately in the evenings while the kids were young. Over the next eight years, we added three more children and I continued as a private and community classroom teacher.
Somewhere in the middle of all this, it was time for our kids to start their own education. For a variety of reasons, we decided to give homeschooling a whirl. Fast forward several years, and here I am, a fifth-year homeschooling mom of four kids.
