2013 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Welcome to Homeschooling Hearts & Minds!

I’m Susan, wife to my best friend, a Catholic, a philosopher, a writer, a maker of things, an imaginer of worlds…and a mother and teacher to these 4 unique kiddos (tallest to shortest): David (age 13), Mary (age 9), Peter (age 7), and Emma (age 4).


Homeschooling Hearts & Minds is a place where you’ll find free resources for learning, encouragement for your heart, real life for your soul, and real reviews for your mind.  I would love to get to know you!

While you’re here, be sure to check out some of my free goodies and ultimate resource lists:

Let’s connect:


  1. What a great and creative website. Stopping by as part of the UBP.

  2. Hopping over from UBP13. I'll be sharing some of your freebies with my readers.

    I homeschooled for 10 yrs, but now mine are all grown up. I also like to cook, craft & write.

    If you ever want some fun activities with your kids, stop by for our Oreo Moon Phases or our Lucky Charms Graph.

  3. Looks like you're going to the 2:1 Conference. I'm not going, but I'm sponsoring 2 bloggers. Be sure to say hi to Rebecca Brandt (Mom's Mustard Seeds) and Becky Marie (For This Season)


  4. So nice to meet you and your beautiful children!

    Just dropping by from the #UBP13. You have a terrific blog

    here. Looking forward to getting to know you better! I hope you

    find the time to stop by my site. Have a wonderful weekend!


  5. I have to take a look through your freebies! It looks like you have some great ideas. We are also a homeschooling family. I'm stopping by from the Blog Party and totally loving finding all these gems, especially the homeschooling ideas.

  6. I LOVE your blog! I'm a new follower and I found you on UBP13! I looked through a few of your posts and it looks like we have a lot in common! Please come by my blog and follow me at! Have a blessed day!

  7. Hello! I'm stopping by from the UBP13! We homeschool, too! Nice to meet a fellow homeschooler. Love that picture of your "students."

  8. Hi, I found you through UBP13. I'm kind of a newb to blogging, but I'm loving it so far. I'm an educator, former foster parent (for kids with emotional, physical, and mental disabilities) and adoptive dad of two kiddos with special needs. It's been great reaching out, talking to, and hopefully helping other families! My whole blog is all about learning to learn and helping families succeed using brain-based practices. Come check it out. I think you will like it!

  9. I’m late! I’m late! I’m stopping by from the UBP13. I hope you stop by our party for a slice of warm banana bread and cold milk.
