Disclosure & Privacy Policy

Disclosure Policy:  I created this blog to share my homeschooling journey with you. I want to share what has worked and not worked for me and the kids who have learned with me.  I want to share ideas for supplementing your family’s income while homeschooling.  I also want to be transparent. I have always worked while homeschooling.  Always.  It is my goal that this site eventually pays for itself and provides another income source for our family (so I can quit my other job).  I utilize affiliate memberships and advertising to this end.  I will always post an affiliate link statement on the posts that include them.  Not all the links in a post will be affiliate links; I won’t withhold great information just because I don’t receive compensation.  When you click on an affiliate link or ad, I may receive some sort of small compensation from that company, at no cost to you.    I love to share my opinion about curriculum, planners, or other homeschool and home management products.  If I receive something in return for a review I will disclose that in the post.    My opinions (and man, do I have a lot) are mine.  I try to offer well rounded reviews so you can decide for yourself if it will work for you.  If I have curriculum for sale on another site, the post will clearly state that the curriculum I am promoting is mine.  One day I hope to open an online shop of my own (cue “When You Wish Upon a Star”).
