Welcome to The Pretty Homeschool!

Hello, I'm Macy, pediatric physical therapist, certified breastfeeding specialist, and most importantly mom of 3 amazing kids who have sparked this home education journey. I'm delighted to welcome you to The Pretty Homeschool. Here, I embark on a journey of discovery, creativity, and learning alongside my three little ones.

A Mother's Inspiration:

I have a one and a half year-old, a three year-old, and I also have a nine year-old daughter who is in the public education system to better address her many special needs. Because she has several learning disabilities, education has always been a battle for her, so I've been on a mission to make supplementary learning at home enjoyable for her as well. Naturally my other two little ones have jumped in to the degree that they've been able to as well, and it's been amazing to watch them flourish!

As a lover of design and former house flipper, I really care about creating an enriching and beautiful environment for my children's education. The belief that the things we surround ourselves with impact us profoundly is at the core of my homeschooling philosophy. Our home is not just a space; it's a canvas upon which we paint the most beautiful experiences, nurturing hearts and minds and sparking a love for learning.

Three Little Blessings:

My three little ones are my greatest treasures and the inspiration behind this blog. Their curiosity, creativity, and boundless energy remind me daily of the wonder and beauty in the world. Homeschooling is an adventure we share, a journey of growth and discovery for all of us. As an early intervention therapist, I know of the profound importance of the early years of a child's life for their education and overall development. For this reason, we've begun our homeschool journey right out of the gates with educational activities that support every stage of development!

The Power of Environment:

I love the arts, and I firmly believe in the transformative power of aesthetics. Our surroundings, whether in the form of art, nature, or everyday objects, can influence our emotions, creativity, and even our well-being. This belief guides my approach to homeschooling – making sure that every corner of our home is a source of comfort, inspiration and wonder.

Art and Early Development:

One of my core beliefs is that a love of the arts should be instilled in our little ones from a young age. Their developing brains are like sponges, ready to soak up the beauty and creativity that the world has to offer. Art, music, literature, and all forms of creative expression form the basis of sweet memories and lifelong passions.

Why “Making Homeschooling Beautiful?”

Homeschooling isn't just about textbooks and lesson plans; it's a holistic journey that encompasses every aspect of our lives. “Making Homeschooling Beautiful” is my platform to share ideas, resources, and experiences that make our homeschooling journey a captivating and beautiful one. It's about nurturing a love for learning, a deep appreciation for the arts, and a sense of wonder about the world we live in.

Join me on this adventure as we explore the wonders of homeschooling, infuse our homes with beauty, and cultivate a lifelong love of learning in our precious little ones. Together, we can make homeschooling not just educational but also truly beautiful.

Thank you for being part of this journey!

With love and creativity,

Macy
