About Us

Hello! I’m so glad you decided to visit my site today. My name is Jennifer, and I’m a homeschooling work at home mom of 5 beautiful children. I started this site to help other homeschooling families find what I fought so hard to find: free homeschooling resources.


I started homeschooling my children back in 2006. You can read my homeschooling story on my large family blog. Short version: I had a little falling out with the school system my girls were in, so I pulled them out and started my homeschooling journey.

Our family is unable to afford expensive curriculum; therefore, I am always searching for free things to help further my children’s education. The purpose of this blog is two fold: first, it’s a place for me to keep track of everything I find, and second, to share everything I find with other homeschooling families like you!

So thank you for visiting, and please, if you have any comments, suggestions or questions, feel free to contact me.
