Hi there and welcome to Chasing Jupiter!

 I’m Sara, author of this blog, wife to my best friend, Matt, and mom of two little boys, Cohen and Erik. Currently, ninety-eight percent of my life is spent with these three. It’s the life of a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cohen, is my outside-the-box, deep thinking, strong-willed, six-year-old. He’s the one who made me a mom and who challenged every idea I ever had about parenting. Cohen sees the world differently than most, including me, and despite any challenges that accompany those differences, I can’t help but feel unbelievably lucky that I get to experience the world through his eyes.

Erik, is my happy-go-lucky, creative, cuddly, two-year-old. The moment I began to believe I had the art of parenting figured out, he came along as a reminder that I definitely do not have it all figured out. Our family just wasn’t quite complete until he came along.

Homeschooling, or more accurately, unschooling, is our most recent adventure. I will be sharing much of our journey here and the lessons I am learning along the way.
