The first floor reno continues. I’ve been feeling a little guilty because I’m not spending as much time with Hanna and her school work as I’d probably like. However, this lack created growth. 🙂 Hanna is still struggling to do anything on her own, take initiative, get out there and find the answers/solutions. It’s understandable. … Continue reading →
It all started with a simple wish to paint the living room. Which quickly snowballed into a tiny kitchen addition/remodel, which quickly snowballed into a complete kitchen renovation. How does that happen? Needless to say, life has been hectic, and dusty this week, and we’ve managed to learn a ton in the process. Who knew … Continue reading →

I'm Jackie Lee. A secular, relaxed, eclectic, homeschooling mom of one. I love exclamation marks! emoticons and say LOL way too much.
I believe in learning.
My kiddo went to public school through grade 4. I brought her home because she'd lost the love of learning, and I believe THAT is the biggest asset one can have in life.
