The Zach Girls is a Parenting and Homeschooling focused blog that will guide you through creating a home that not only supports your children, but you as well. You can find posts centered on creating family rhythms, homeschooling topics, sensory tools, and self development.
Whether you’re brand new to homeschooling, or your children are in a traditional child care setting and you’re just looking to supplement their education and create some balance in your home life, I’m here to support you.
Hello there! My name is Miranda. I am a stay at home mother to a vibrant kindergartner and a toddler who is obsessed with whatever her sister has.
I was home-educated from 1st through 12th grade and thoroughly enjoyed the space to become myself while developing a lifelong love for learning. When I completed my home education, I transitioned into an Associates degree program in Massage Studies so that I could have a career that would support me and my family someday. Since then I’ve worn many hats, even working for government for a while. I quit my job 4 years ago to stay home with my daughter, and found that at home I could not only create a rich learning environment for her, but also built community around ourselves for other families with sensory needs and neurodiverse children.
I’m imperfectly pursuing living a purposeful lifestyle while being resourceful and creative with our budget. Often this means trial and error (mostly error) with making food and household goods from scratch. I grew up in 4-H being exposed to so many aspects of knowing the roots of where your daily necessities come from. Whether it was carding wool to create yarn to weave household decor, to preserving jams, jellies, and fruit leathers, or making breads or caring for second hand clothes to make sustainable clothing choices, and those skills spill over into my adult life in creating a healthy and budget conscious home.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I look forward to our conversations together.
