Fundamentally Classical is more than an education blog. It is a way of life, my life as a homeschooling mother, and I want to share my experience and knowledge with you!

About Me

I am a homeschooling mother to six beautiful children, ages one through twelve.

I knew I wanted to homeschool before I was even married. I don’t know where the idea came from as no one I knew homeschooled their children or was homeschooled themselves, but once the idea struck me, I never questioned it or looked back. I had been culling homeschool catalogs for books and ideas for years before my first purchase. I had handwritten notes of what curricula I would use at what grade level through high school before my first child was in kindergarten.

Since those early years, my homeschooling ideals and values have changed substantially into something traditional and beautiful: a Fundamentally Classical education for my children.

Classical education is not just a school methodology. It truly is a way of life. Education does not stop when the books close and the assignments are completed. It is a full-day, lifelong process, one that must be sufficiently fostered and habituated in order to create a knowledgable and virtuous human being. This is why I include a little parenting advice on a homeschool blog. The way you parent will influence how you school your children, so sometimes the way you homeschool has to influence how you parent.

My intention with Fundamentally Classical is to help demonstrate to my readers how important a classical education is and why that should inform your homeschool ideals, but also to lift the anxiety about homeschooling you may have when you’re just starting out and to help you figure out where to go and what to do.

In addition and not the least in importance, this blog is for me. Everybody needs reminders now and then, and writing this blog has taught me how much I need to be reminded about these all important topics!

Please feel free to email me with any and all of your questions about homeschooling. If I don’t know the answer, I want to at least help point you in the right direction to find it.
