Hey, thanks for taking time to visit today! I’m Tracy…

  • I write for moms and families living in NE Ohio – but also beyond.
  • I write for homeschooling families and non-homeschooling families.
  • I share our family’s experiences traveling in general and Ohio, specifically, because we live here.

You’ll find my contact information at the end of this post.

Who We Are

My husband Joel and I have been married for 15+ years and we have two sons whom I’ve been homeschooling for almost eight years now. They are 11 and 13 years old currently. We also have three hermit crabs and (now) three cats, well, two are still kittens we adopted through the Stark County Human Society.

By the way, each of our cats have their own hashtags on Instagram: #SpankytheCat #CookiestheCat #BuckeyetheCat .

We Learn Together

As I mentioned above I homeschool our boys. I also host a fun homeschool club in my home with a few families, this will be our third year. Each year we change the theme. So far it’s been Lego Club, Minecraft Club and this year it will be a S.T.E.A.M. Club.

Before becoming a blogger in 2008 and homeschooling mom, I had received my bachelors degree from Liberty University and worked in many positions primarily focused on serving others in areas of sales, customer service, management, coordination, and teaching.

We Travel Together

Every year our family travels somewhere in Ohio in cooperation with brands that want to get their message out to families. Last year we had an extra special opportunity to fly to SW Florida for a very busy week of fun and adventure!
