There was never a thought for us to open a school (before now)! But one God put in our hearts and one we have become SUPER passionate about!
(This ‘about us’ is a little lengthly… but good! So please… read on :))
Here’s how it started… the world shut down & we were forced to become “teachers” as we struggled to follow along with the curriculum our kids were using at their private school. That was the seed God planted. Little did we know the future would consist of that seed growing into such an amazing space.
I never imagined homeschooling our kids. That was a big “NO” in every conversation. Two weeks before the 2020-21 school year started, we received an email from their school going over the new “guidelines” for the year…. Masks, temp checks, no recess, no art class, no group projects, no eating together for lunch, plexiglass…. I started crying while reading it. I put my phone down, looked at Ryan, & said, “I’m homeschooling”. He said, “okay”. And that was the first step of this journey…. #GodsPlan
We stuck with the same curriculum the kids were using at their school… with all intentions of sending them back the next year… when things turned back to “normal”….
Two months in… and we hated it! It was then that I started realizing all of the programming that was happening in schools. Hurry up and finish! Not allowing kids to critical think, creatively think, find their passions. They sat in a room all day… learning about things that they didn’t care about… and quite honestly, things that aren’t important in the “real world”.
