Hi. I’m Rachael (aka Faye).  Welcome to my corner of the internet!  Here you’ll find weekly posts with routines, books, homeschool help and of course, peeks inside of my house!

We homeschool three of our four children ages nine, eight, and five (with little brother tagging along.)  Great books,  time outdoors, and real life experiences are the anchors of our learning.   We use a handful of Charlotte Mason methods to support our main philosophy of unschooling.

Recently we moved from Northern California to Kansas City where we are enjoying the Midwest suburban life. My hope is that when you step into my little corner of the internet, you’ll find a bit of something to take home to your own family homeschooling table!

If you’re new here, check out a tour of our homeschool space and my homeschool help page!  Want to see what our homeschool looks like by year?  Go here! 

I write at this blog weekly and contribute monthly to the Wild and Free community bundles.  Some of my work has been featured in these publications:
