I live with my husband, Jeremy, and our two littles: Lena Pearl (age 5) and Nigel (age 3) in a 184 year-old cottage in Williamsville, NY. We call it the Cozy Cottage & it’s the inspo behind our not-famous brand, “Cozy Homeschool.”
In June 2019 my life flipped upside down. I was a former elementary public school PE teacher who said, “I will NEVER homeschool our children.” Thankfully, the Lord had a better plan AND a great sense of humor. 😉
In the summer of 2019, I had about 4 weeks to figure out where to start & I felt super overwhelmed. Almost paralyzed. Thankfully, I had a lot of veteran homeschooling friends who shared with me and talked me back from the edge of the cliff. They encouraged me to take a deep breath, start somewhere, and be ok with changing things up. 🙂
I LOVE to research, try new things & share with others. (A teacher at heart.) So much has been shared with me, so I want to encourage others who might be where I was a year ago.
Maybe you’re feeling scared, overwhelmed, or ill-equipped…but are feeling the nudge to try something different. I thought ALL the stereotypes, unfortunately, but wow! Was I wrong! Homeschooling has come a LONG WAY over the years and is NOTHING like I thought it would be.
I know that this isn’t for everyone, but if I had never tried it, I wouldn’t have known it WAS for our family.
My motive for this “Cozy Homeschool” site is to share ideas, inspiration, and resources I’ve found along the way.
I am not an expert, just a real mom with 2 energetic littles who needs Jesus, lots of coffee, a cozy little cottage to call home.
Now that I am one year in, I can confidently say with a smile that in June 2019, “my life flipped right-side up.”
My daily reminder: “Make it a great day, or not, the choice is yours!”
Lots of love,
