Hi! I’m April.

I'm a wife, mother of 3, homeschooler, artist, and homestead enthusiast living in the Pacific Northwest. My husband (Ryan) and I raise our three precious sons (Kender, Rhett, & Mason) together on our five acre homestead. This blog is about creating joy in life's chaos through family, art, homeschooling, and homesteading.

I started homeschooling in 2016, and we began our homestead journey when we moved into our new house in 2018. We’ve learned a lot these past few years through research, experimentation, and trial and error. This is a place for me to share what we’ve learned on our journey, and hopefully help others along the way.

Since I’m a tad artsy-fartsy, it’s also a place for me to share art, coloring pages, printables, and other things I create!
