Welcome! You are your child’s first (and most important) teacher! This site is dedicated to parents– mother and fathers, stay-at-home parents and working parents. Spend a few minutes each day investing in your child and a lifetime of rewards they will reap!
I created this blog in July of 2010 as a way to hold myself accountable to being intentional in the time I have with both of my children. It is also my hope that this site can be beneficial for other parents and caregivers wishing to enrich the development of their young child!
Within this site, you will find activities for young children, resources for parents, some crafts, and an occasional parenting tip or two! Whether it is alphabet activities, numbers, learning colors or teaching your child to read…we’ve pretty much got you covered!
I love learning alongside my kids and am so blessed to share our journey together with each of you. THANK YOU for joining us! Be sure to keep up with all the latest posts and discussions on our Facebook page and check out lots of great ideas from my favorite bloggers on our Pinterest page!
PS- Many people assume that I homeschool because of the name of this blog and I certainly don’t want to confuse anyone. I started this blog when my boys were just 2 1/2 years and 6 months old, so “school” wasn’t really on my radar…I just wanted to help equip parents to spend time teaching their little ones! After prayerful consideration when the time came to make the schooling decision, my husband and I decided that our boys would attend school outside the home. Our decision regarding schooling continues to be made year to year. This does not change the fact that I believe that every parent is their child’s FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT teacher. :)
I am a former first-grade teacher turned stay-at-home Momma to two boys (ages 9 and 7) and a little girl (3 years old). I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in Early-Childhood Education. I then went on to get a Master’s Degree in Education and graduated the same month that I decided I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom!
Above all else, we are a family striving to grow closer to God each day while leading our children to Him as well.
Meet the Fam
Prince Charming–The love of my life. I am so thankful for this wonderful man and so very blessed to have him as my very best friend. He is my constant encourager and an AMAZING father!
Big Brother (9)–When Big Brother was born, I felt as though my heart would burst from loving too much. He has brought so much sunshine to our lives! His boundless energy keeps me on my toes and his sweet, compassionate spirit warms my heart. He is Mr. Personable and LOVES to be the center of attention.
Little Brother (7)–What a joy this precious little boy has been in our lives. He makes us laugh every day and fills our home with lots of joyful noise. I am confident that he and Big Brother will be best buds all their lives.
Baby Sister (3) – In February of 2014, we welcomed a baby girl to our family. She is an absolute joy and we are so thankful to God for her!
