A Little About
Simply Be Wild & Free
The idea for this homeschool blog literally just came to me on a sunny afternoon.
I hadn’t spent years dreaming about creating a homeschool blog or being a big name in the homeschool blogger realm.
I was sipping on my warm cup of coffee watching my children run around in the backyard.
Something just clicked.
The phrase Simply Be, Wild & Free kept replaying over and over again in my mind.
I craved that simplicity of sitting with a cup of coffee in my hand while my children run wild and free.
As I sat there with this new inspiration in my brain, I knew I had to create a homeschool blog… but I had absolutely no idea how to do it. With the help of my husband and some quick research on Pinterest, I got to work.
The Story Behind The Name…
The name of this homeschool blog means so many things to me as a struggling homeschool mom!
Simply Be, Wild & Free is everything I want to be, everything I want my kids to experience, and everything I dream our homeschool life will be.
This part of the name represents me as a mom. I seriously struggle sometimes, you guys.
It represents my need to let go, accept things for what they are, and simply be.
WILD & FREE
This part of the name represents my 3 children.
It represents the immense desire I have for them to be children that are not only bold, strong, and fearless, but also for them be completely wild and free.
A Little About Me…
I am a God fearing, homeschool mom of 3 and this little homeschool blog is filled with things that are straight from my heart, you guys!
My largest struggle as a homeschool mom is time management. I put my all into everything I do, but trying to wear all the hats all the time can be completely overwhelming sometimes.
I’m a huge introvert and have always struggled with putting myself out there, which is why creating and being a spokesperson for a homeschool blog seems like the absolute last thing I would ever do!
This was all God.
I didn’t know it at the time. I simply felt called to create this homeschool blog and put my everything into it without any true explanation. It wasn’t until over a year later that I realized this wasn’t even my plan, but HIS.
This is ME…
When I first started homeschooling I went all out. The kids had fancy desks, posters on the wall, and an entire organized space just for learning. Little did I know, my kids could actually learn anywhere and everywhere!
My new go to place to teach lessons? Totally the couch.
I’m an avid coffee drinker. Give it to me black or with a little cream, just skip the sugar please!
Purchasing homeschool curriculum & books we might not exactly need in the moment will always be my biggest weakness. Seriously though. I love collecting the classics and encouraging my kids to learn all the things.
I’m a HUGE dog lover!! If I could spend my entire day on the couch with my puppies, a soft blanket, and a never ending cup of coffee – not going to lie, I would totally be in my element!
A Homeschool Blog
Straight From the Heart…
This homeschool blog is straight from my heart. Everything I’ve written is for YOU – the reader. With God’s strength and guidance, I strive to make Simply Be, Wild & Free a safe haven for struggling homeschool moms in need.
I want to inform, but also to encourage each and every one of my followers to turn their homeschool into something they LOVE!
I am not an expert and I definitely don’t know all the things – I’m still learning, just like each and every one of you!
Connect on the Homeschool Blog
For the homeschool mom that wants to explore everything Simply Be, Wild and Free has to offer, check out the top 2 blog posts I like to recommend and share from my homeschool blog!
This was one of my absolute favorite posts to write! I actually wrote this post with a fellow homeschool mom in mind. She had turned to me for wisdom (I wasn’t completely confident in the fact that I even had some to offer) and advice.
This mom was feeling overwhelmed with the idea of bringing her children home and even though I had been at it for a while, it was a feeling I remembered all too well.
This is actually one of my all time top preforming posts on the blog.
When I wrote this post, we had already gone through the following schooling scenarios:
- Private Schooling
- Online Public School
- Traditional (5 Day) Homeschool Week
I was loving our new homeschool curriculum, but I was overwhelmed with doing all the things 5 days a week! I needed time to work on my homeschool blog, get the laundry done, and refresh! Plus, I found that my kids totally thrived with a do whatever day throw in the mix each week.
Connect on Social Media
For the homeschool mom that loves reading daily tidbits and connecting on social media…
You can follow me on my social media accounts for blog updates and simple heart to heart posts.
Looking for a little more? Request to join my Facebook group where I get a little more personal with my conversations and interactions. You can also ask for advice or message me anytime. I absolutely love connecting with homeschool moms in this way!
I sometimes host theme weeks, where I teach on a specific homeschool topic and share new blog posts in the group as well!
A Simple Thanks
Thanks for checking out my little corner of the world and for all the continued support!
Homeschooling can be a wonderful journey and I’m so excited that I get to share it with all of you!
Together we can learn to Simply Be, WILD & FREE.
