This is my family. I am married to my highschool sweetheart. We have 5 kids ages 15, 11, 10, 7, 7. Often I will reference them as the Fabulous Five, because I think they are all fabulous in their own way. Our youngest we fostered, before we adopted her. She was diagnosed with high functioning Autism, and Sensory Processing Disorder about 4 years ago. We are on a journey as a family, as we discover all the in’s and out’s of that diagnosis.

We started homeschooling 2 years ago. We have fallen in love with Classical Conversations, and that is the curriculum we use. I am so thankful that we took “the plunge” to do it. We probably should have started homeschooling much earlier, but I really thought that I could not do it. Fear tries to cripple us with lies, but God did not give us a spirit of fear, He gave us a sound mind. The Lord has helped me every step of the way. We are learning everyday together, and I would not trade it for anything.

My hope is to document our journey with a special needs child, post all my recipes in one place, homeschooling, and journal about our life in general. Enjoy!
