Welcome to The Relaxed Homeschool! My name is Jennifer. I am a mother to spunky and fun 7 year old boy. I’m so glad to be able to share my love of homeschooling and being a mom with you! Like most of you my days are usually pretty busy. I work from home creating learning packs for my homeschooling adventure. I love writing and expressing my creative side. Blogging and my baby boutique business allows me to do these things. I am very lucky to have these outlets available.
In December 2009 my husband and I were blessed with the birth of our son. Being a Mom is the best thing in the world and I enjoy watching him grow each and every day. We knew early on that we wanted to homeschool our child (and future children). I went to school become a teacher, but I did not finish up my last year to get my degree. During pregnancy I was put on bed rest and was unable to complete my classes. I never had the desire (yet) to finish up my degree. So teaching is kind of in my blood. 🙂 You can read here why we chose to homeschool.
Homeschooling your children can at first be a bit overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! This is an amazing start to a new chapter in your lives. Embrace it and have fun with it! I came up with “The Relaxed Homeschool” to help other parents find the resources they need to homeschool their children effectively. I also hope that you find support and encouragement here as well. Just RELAX and go with the flow! It’s an amazing adventure and I hope you join me!
Amy Baker should be tired. She’s a wife and the mother of four sons, including a set of twins. She can talk to you about cloth diapers, slings, potty training, homeschooling, the joys of boys, competitive sports, teenagers, applying to college and ways to stretch your budget until you want to run away screaming. For now, she’s focused on homeschooling her youngest son and writing about her experiences rather than scaring away perfectly nice people.
