Welcome Here!


I am in the process of bringing several of my blogs together into one place.  

This blog is meant to be a catalog of all my interests. The main areas that consume my life are:

Parenting my five beautiful children using the developmental approach of Dr. Gordon Neufeld.

Homeschooling the youngest three using the educational philosophy of 19th century educator, Charlotte Mason.

Running a frugal and busy household on a single income.

Creating beautiful costumes for local theatrical productions and cosplay.

My journey to a black belt with Meibukan Gojyu Ryu Karate.
