An Introduction

Hi! I’m April. I was born and raised in Texas. I met my husband Ryan while we were both at school in Idaho. We now reside in Washington state, where Ryan works as a police officer (he is also lovingly known as Deputy Dreamy. He looks good in a uniform ). We have been blessed with three sweet little boys. While Ryan is off protecting our community, I hold down the fort and homeschool our boys. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I incorporate Christian values into our homeschool.

Ryan and I

I’ve always enjoyed blogging, and have kept a blog to document our family life since Ryan and I got married back in 2010. I’ve found my passion in educating our kids at home, so I decided I wanted to start writing about our homeschooling journey. These years are fleeting, and I want to be able to sit on my couch with my laptop and cry (tears of gratitude) as I look back on these precious times. Before I know it my boys will be off at college, getting jobs, getting married, and having babies of their own! This is my happy place to reflect on these sweet times together ❤

In addition to homeschool posts, you’ll find posts about my family, gardening, faith, creativity and homesteading. But mostly my family. Basically, my family is my everything ❤️
