I’m so excited to be taking over the reins of this blog. My name is Dawn Peluso and I was one of the folks that helped Diane with the Schoolin’ Swag Facebook page. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3. Our children are 11, 9, and 3. We live in Eastern, NC and enjoy hiking, the beach, and spending time with family. We are active in our church and strive be a family that follows Jesus.
We use a variety of materials and methods in our home school and like to say our style is “Charlotte Mason Eclectic”. In particular, we enjoy using lots of good books, nature study, hands-on history, cooking, and traveling to create a family culture of learning and growing.
Look for more posts over the next couple weeks with information about book reviews, fun home school ideas, and more.
My plan for the blog beginning in September is to have a weekly post about the history that we are studying that week (my husband and I are creating a hands on American history program for our kids and I will share that plan and the resources that we are using, in case anyone else wants to join us on that journey), Product reviews, a monthly book review of a book for Moms, lots of guest posts from other homeschooling moms about what they are doing in their home schools and a variety of other content. I’m very open to hearing from our readers about what you would like to see and making sure we are meeting those needs.
