I am Angela. I would really like to thank you for stopping by. I am married and have 5 kids. Alex (6), Ava (3), and Audrey (1). My stepdaughters are Epiphany (20) and Zoie (15). We live on the East coast of Florida on a barrier island.
I started this blog to chronicle my families homeschooling experience. I realize our life is in a state of constant evolution and this blog reflects this. I love the journey that my family is on…I think that we get better everyday!
In 2011 my homeschool curriculum was planned out. Today, we lean toward unschooling. You could call us almost unschoolers or very relaxed eclectic homeschoolers. I attended college to become a teacher….I am so happy that my classroom has become the entire world!
My family is certainly making a dramatic change in our lifestyle. We used to eat fast food, buy bottled water, and use harsh chemicals in our home. We now make our own homemade household cleaners and hygiene products. I love love love adding to these lists!
I used to run to our pediatrician every time my child had a runny nose. Now we rarely go to the doctor and use homeopathic remedies as often as we can.
My husband and I practice natural parenting. I am a mama who believes in attachment parenting. I co-sleep, wear my baby, breastfeed beyond one year and so much more.
I love to cook. I try to feed my family very little processed foods. We do not eliminate them 100% (I allow indulgences) but I can assure you that we have come a very long way in the last 5, even 1, years. I love to share my recipes on this blog.
I believe that learning is a lifestyle. I believe that we learn everyday. I am learning about new ways to feed my family and keep them healthy. I am learning that homemade versions of many household items are much safer for us and cost much less than store-bought items…it is a win-win! I hope my children grow to have a natural appetite for knowledge and hope that this appetite continues throughout their lives.
So that sums me up. As you can see I blog about all that encompasses my life. I do not claim that how I live is the ‘right’ way to live but it is the right way for us right now. As I mentioned earlier our life is an evolution and is constantly changing. I will never go back to edit a page to reflect ‘new’ changes in my thinking. I will own and highlight any changes that I embark and share them with whomever is reading.
I view my life as a constant evolution. I have no regrets of my past it made me who I am today.
This whole blogging ‘thing’ never ceases to amaze me…I so enjoy interacting with new people via the internet and welcome any comments
