My name is Amber, and I'm a convert to Christianity (August 2003) who entered the Catholic Church in April of 2007. My husband and I married in 2001 and we have been homeschooling since 2006. We have four children, Emma (14), Gregory (10), Nathan (7), Justin (4), and Hannah (2). We live on 10 acres in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in a home we largely built ourselves.
In our homeschool I am heavily influenced by Charlotte Mason's methods and ideas. In the spring of 2011 I decided to embrace her teachings as fully as I understood them and our homeschool has been amply blessed by this change.
On this blog I hope to share a little bit about our homeschool and about what I am learning. I am not aiming for an accurate picture of our day to day life, but rather I hope to share that occasional flare of light which brightens our lives and brings us closer to God.
