Welcome to Our Catholic Homeschool!

This blog began four years ago when we set out on  our homeschooling journey with our oldest son, but that is getting ahead of myself, so let’s take a ride in the T.A.R.D.I.S. and go back about a decade.

Our story is like many others: guy and gal meet, get married, have a boy…

…and then proceed to have three more boys over the next eight years.

At one point, we decided that being Catholic converts in Oklahoma wasn’t ostracizing enough, so we started to homeschool, too.  At that time, I only had two boys and was sure I would have loads of time for a super cool time sucker like blogging. (Jokes on me!)

Even with four boys, I have managed to enjoy some hobbies.  Playing musical furniture in my schoolroom being one of the most predominant.  Trying out new curriculum every year coming in a close second.  Making spreadsheets, definitely third.

This blog serves several purposes: a resource site for awesome homeschool stuff that I make and find, a journal of our homeschool life, and every once in a while – a sounding board for my take on this and that.  If you are looking for a place to start, here is my blog in a blink (basically, 9 posts that are highly representative of the stuff on this blog).
