Welcome to Growing As We Go! My name is Mandy and I am a wife to my husband of 14 years and a mommy to two wonderful, silly, and spunky children who always keep me on my toes! More importantly, I am a child of an amazing God who has carried me through some tough times and trials. I feel blessed to be able to stay at home everyday with my children so that I can homeschool them and watch them grow (although at times they make me want to reconsider that decision!).
I created this blog so that I could share my experiences as a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom with other moms and families. I have a background in the early childhood field and that experience goes hand in hand with my love of creating fun activities and projects to do with my children as well as things to do together as a family.
I also wanted to inspire other moms with not only the activities I write about, but with all the other “stuff” that goes into being a mom, such as organizing and simplifying your life, homemaking, taking time for yourself and growing as a person.
Being a mom definitely has its ups and downs, but it is my hope that this blog offers encouragement and helps you to “grow as you go” throughout all the areas of your busy life during this adventure known as motherhood! I know that I want to continue growing, learning, and improving…even if it’s just one day at a time!
