Hi there!

Hi there!

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

When we began this crazy adventure, my husband suggested I start a blog as a daily journal that chronicles our triumphs, mishaps, and the overall hilarity we knew would ensue as I attempted to cultivate the minds and hearts of our children.  I, however, wasn’t sold on the idea.  I mean – who would ever want to spend time reading about…well…us?

Fast-forward two years, mounds of mishaps, a plethora of triumphs, and a barrel full of belly laughs later, and here we are.  The Boy has graduated from high school and is pursuing a degree in IT at the local University.  He also works full time at a land surveying company. Above all, he is working toward ministry as a children’s pastor.  The Penguin is entering the middle school years.  She plays the upright bass.  She LOVES animals (evidenced by the small zoo we’ve accumulated).  She desires to become a veterinarian.  She has a fierce love for God.

We share our school space with an African pygmy hedgehog, Quilhelmina:

Two hermit crabs, Eugene & Hermie:

and two pups, Poundcake & Anubis:

I’m learning this blogging thing as I go (which is pretty much how I do EVERYTHING), so please bear with me as I navigate the ins and outs of just about every aspect of blogging about homeschooling (and life in general).


About Nikki

I’m just a child of God, wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, chef, maid, chauffeur, and (somehow) teacher taking this homeschooling adventure one day at a time. I’m lucky enough to be married to my best friend. We have two children: the Boy (who is in college studying to become a computer programmer) and the Penguin (my partner in homeschooling crime).
