About Us

My name is Beth and I’m a not-so-average, cursing, purple haired, bad housekeeper, vegan mom who has probably been doing an average job at homeschooling for the past 5 years. We’re our own worst critics, aren’t we?

My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have two sons, Marshall (10) and Nicholas (3), and I have my special needs sister-in-law during the day. We also have a rabbit, a cat, and a dog.

The purpose of this blog is to show other homeschooling families, or those thinking about homeschooling, that we don’t always have our shit together. Sometimes you just have to wing it. I think of it as realistic homeschooling.

You can join my family on our homeschooling journey where there will be no “holier-than-thou” attitude. We’re just doing our best to educate our kids, keep them alive, and hope they don’t grow up to be jerks.
