Hi! My name is Beth Watson. I’m a happily married mother of 5 lovely littles; 4 boys and 1 girl, ages 7, 5, 4, 2, and newborn. My husband works hard to provide for our family and I am blessed to stay home. We believe that God called us right now to homeschool and doubt we would’ve found our way here otherwise. Raising our children and caring for our home bring me daily joy!
My husband and I were both privately educated at small, Christian schools. We were surprised and excited when God called us to homeschool in 2010. Our circle of family and friends were also often surprised, but supportive. A comment I hear often is, “Oh, I could never do that. I’m not patient.” My most common reply: “Me neither. I think that’s exactly why God called us to homeschool!” He loves our family and is using homeschooling to sanctify us. In just a few short years, homeschooling has been an immeasurable blessing to our family and I’m so grateful that God always knows best.
Along with my family, I love reading, creating, sports, and traveling.
I began blogging in 2011 to chronicle my family’s journey into homeschooling, specifically classical education with Classical Conversations. When we joined CC just two short years ago, the classical education model was completely foreign to all of us. Partway through the second year, I realized I was essentially taking my experience of traditional education and blending it with the CC memory work. I am now fully embracing the classical model. As my children’s primary teacher, I am slowly learning my way, but I still have SO much more to learn! Join me as I find my way in homeschooling through learning!

I’m excited to connect with you!
Disclosure: As of June 2013, I’m adding affiliate links to some posts. This will help offset the cost of reading and sharing with all of you plus perhaps give me some compensation for time (and some money) spent blogging. Which by the way, I love doing!
Also, I am sometimes given products by companies to review and to giveaway. I am not compensated in any other way. I look to connect with companies that are relevant specifically for homeschooling families. I will only share products I love and use with you. I will always give my honest opinion.
A few things about this:
1) The items I share will continue to be items I actually really love and use.
2) Affiliate links do not change the cost or service to you at all.
3) I’m using Amazon links simply because I find using their site easiest for ordering many items, especially books.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
