Welcome to Capturing the Charmed Life…

I love this homeschool lifestyle, but self-care — you mean like getting out of my yoga pants and having a shower once a week? I don’t have time to get the laundry done before someone asks for a pair of socks — I’m trying to fit in the math workbooks between breakfast and piano practice. I definitely don’t have time for me!

School just got cancelled! I’ve spent one day teaching my kids at home and I don’t know WHAT I’m doing. This is a whole new world. I love my kids, but I’m supposed to work at home, entertain them and teach them something? Help!

Hi, I’m Teresa.

I want us all to turn our challenges into our charms…

We all want to thrive,

not just survive,

our homeschools.
