Raffy Lou

The homeschool mom

Next door

Hey y’all.

I’m Raffy Lou, and I am a Christian mom of 4 who happens to homeschool and do all the regular mom things. This blog is an accumulation of all things I love, support, and want to share – all without spending a fortune or taking things too seriously. I hope to show you how not to just survive this season of life, but to thrive and laugh your way through it! (Not every moment of it, but most of it!)

If that sounds like a village you could get down with, join me in my corner of the internet. Maybe we can learn a thing or two from one another along the way because motherhood is HARD!

Is Homeschooling

Right for you?

It’s a big deal. I get it. You’ve seen the uptick of parents taking control of their kiddos’ education within the last three years and you’ve wondered to yourself, could I do this? Surely, I can’t. I could never. Well, I’m here to tell you – you can.

And don’t call me Shirley.
