Printables and Resources for Moms and Homeschoolers
Hi, I’m Forest Rose Chacon.
Jesus Girl, Wife and Mom to 3 amazing girls amongst all the other multi-colored hats I wear, from homeschooling, taxi service for my kids, to running this blog and creating pretty printables.
Life is not a race, but some days it sure seems that way, amiright?
I’ve homeschooled for over a decade and honestly, I still haven’t quite figured it all out.
My two oldest recently transitioned to public middle school (eek) and this lovely lady pictured above, Jordan, is my only homeschooler.
15 years ago I married the love of my life, Cornel, who runs his own construction business here in our hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana where within one weeks time you can experience any of the 4 seasons. Sometimes even within the same day. Winters seem long and brutal and summers seem short and hot.
We have been very blessed to have each other as we build our lives and family together with God on a solid foundation. The road has been broken and blessed, but we grow stronger every day.
In 2009 we decided to start homeschooling our oldest daughter, hasta luego comfort zone.
We started homeschooling not to keep our kids at home or to shelter them, but simply because we were called to.
We were immediately put into the “Weird” people category, getting a lot of “how will you socialize them?” or “Wow! You must have a lot of patience!” or my favorite “Don’t you need a degree to do that?”
I didn’t know the first thing about homeschooling or anyone who did. I wish there was a Homeschooling 101 course I could take or Awesome Facebook Group to join, but alas none of that.
Yeah, seriously I was alone and freaking out! Blindly stepping out and trusting that God knew what He was doing, lol.
I wasn’t disappointed! We loved it!
After 10 years of home educating we have settled into a relaxed eclectic homeschooling style, we follow more of a routine than a schedule, because I am not a planner.
As I mentioned above, I only have one homeschooler right now and unless God has a different plan I only have this year and next until she flies the coop and heads off on that yellow bus to public school land with her sisters.
I’m probably the only mom ugly crying when her 6th grader heads off to the first day of school and when this one leaves, I’ll be an empty-homeschool-nester of sorts.
If you’ve followed me in cyberspace you know that I keep it real. I share homeschooling encouragement and ideas, recipes, tips, freebies, giveaways, printables… anything that is going to make your life as a mom a little easier and encourage you along the way. I hope you will join me on this journey!
