A Day in the Life of Virginia Timberdoodlers

I am Kelly of Midlothian, Virginia. I have a MSEd, and left the public school classroom when my now-11-year-old was born. I also have a 6-year-old who is medically disabled. I am homeschooling him because he is unable to leave the house as he is challenged by a rare, life threatening autoimmune disease. This upcoming school year, I have decided to homeschool my 6th grader. We are so excited about this adventure. My husband is a local business owner. We give our all to enjoy each moment with our boys. We also have two little girls… Yorkies that is- and […]

Hi, fellow homeschoolers! I am Amanda Y. of Seattle, Washington. I am a homeschool and work-at-home mom of two. Ketcher is a 3-year-old preschooler and Kenzie is a 4-year-old kindergartener.

A Day in the Life of Minnesota Timberdoodlers

We are the Madison family and homeschooling in our family is a bit unconventional. I am a single mom with two teenage daughters and although we are almost at the end of our homeschooling journey, it is anything but typical. Both my girls deal with acute trauma, and although we don’t allow such things to define us as people or as a family, it does affect the way we cope with every day normalities. Our Morning: Today is Monday. We have no therapy on Mondays but we do have cleaning. Alarm clocks are not utilized in my house. We wake […]

A Day in the Life of Texas Timberdoodlers

Hey there! We are the Scott family. There are 10 kids total. Yes TEN. Two are grown and out of the house, 6 still live at home, and 2 are in Heaven. Life is never dull around here. Daily life for us is often chaotic yet organized, messy but beautiful, exhausting yet amazing, demanding yet rewarding, ordinary yet spontaneous, hard but simple, and always loud. We live out in the country in a small Texas town on an 800 acre farm. Technically it is a ranch, but farm just sounds more like us. We have an array of animals from […]
