Making sure your children get a good education is one of the most important jobs a parent has. Homeschooling is one way of making sure that your children are raised with your values, and given opportunities to develop their own unique talents. Homeschooling is a lifestyle: one that has brought our family closeness, time to learn and grow, and joy in being together!

Who We Are


Hello! I’m Diane Hopkins. I’ve been homeschooling since way back when hardly anyone did. I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned over the past two decades of homeschooling my 7 children. There wasn’t a “manual” when I started teaching my own, but the homeschool lifestyle has given us great joy . . . and I’d love to share what I’ve learned with you.  You’ll find this website packed with homeschool experience, encouragement and support.

Shop Our Store

Screen shot 2015-03-03 at 12.32.36 AMThere is so much curriculum on the market, that it is hard to know what to choose.  I’ve been homeschooling for 27 years, and I’m here to help! I’ve searched for the very best homeschooling resources and  I personally review every product, trying it out on my own children and grandchildren, to make sure you get the best products at the best prices. I don’t sell everything on the market, like most homeschooling stores. I only offer the things I believe in, use and know work! You can trust my recommendations. Come browse our homeschooling store and take a look at what we have to offer . . .
