Hi there!  I’m Emily; crunchy Catholic mommy to Rachel (5), Allison (3), and Patrick (nursling), and wife to Steve.  I am a homeschooled homeschooler–we officially began Fireweed Preparatory Homeschool in Fall of 2016.  We are a military family currently living in Alaska.  I love scenic hikes, long books, hot tea, tall trees, and late night talks with my husband.  My favorite subject to teach is Nature Study!  One of my greatest joys is watching my children explore Creation.  Sleep deprivation, lactation, and homeschooling can make life messy, but I am learning to lean more on God’s infinite grace than my (very) finite patience.  Follow along as I chronicle our homeschool journey.
