Welcome to The Hummingroom! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Raechel, wife to an amazing husband and mother to 3 beautiful and crazy kiddos. They are each a precious gift. I admire my family so much. Each member is so different than I and those differences I admire most.

Fin, age 3, is my inquisitive one. She pauses to notice each detail and wonder of the creatures and objects in our path. No question goes unasked and she is relentless in her thirst for knowledge. How I long to be like her.

Lou, age 2, is my adventurous one.  She seizes every opportunity for joy (and sometimes mischief). She loves to get her hands (face, feet, hair) messy. She adds another dimension to our learning because she pushes every idea to its furthest possibility. How I long to be like her too.

Huck, 7 months old, is pretty much just along for the ride. He is always smiling and cheery regardless of the situation. He is the sunshine in each room. How I long to be like him too. You won’t see much of him on here for the time being. But know that he is behind the scenes adding much joy and adventure to our lives.

Coleman, my better half, is the rock of our home. He is the encouragement and provision for this homeschool adventure. He is the oldest of 9 and was homeschooled himself. He is the smartest man I know, a jack of all trades, a collector of hobbies, and a life long learner. He is the standard for our school. He is the inspiration. He I admire most.

And there’s me! I’m the biggest learner in this journey. I am in need of the most growth in this process (and trust me this process is growing me).  I am learning to lay down my life each day for my family and most of all to RELAX. HA! Can I get an amen?the humming room(and we have naughty chooks)

This is our homeschool journey. Each of our interests, qualities, and differences meld together to grow and refine each member for the better.

Thanks again for joining us. We would love to get to know you. Comment below!
