Glad you stopped by!

Shannon and Kate Stoltz

I’m Shannon, the voice behind Living Life at Home, and this is my oldest daughter, Kate (aka Kgirl), who helps me out here.

Kgirl is the oldest of my four children. They are my greatest investment, my biggest priority.

My husband Greg and I had always planned that I would stay home and homeschool our kids, but our finances didn’t allow me to stop working when Kgirl arrived.

But thankfully, with creativity, diligence, and prayer, we have found a way to make it work. And, I’ve been able to work from home for all but two years of the last 15 years.

Living life fully at home with family, homeschooling, and work is a wonderful, fun, and amazing journey. Not always easy, but definitely worth it.

This blog is here to encourage you, to share things that might make your journey a little easier, and hopefully inspire you in the many roles you play as you are Living Life at Home with your family.

Oh Wait, Do You Want to Meet the Kids?

My Four Fabulous Kids

If you are interested, you can learn more about my crew here and here. But to get you started, let me introduce everyone, left to right:

  • Sirius, J’s 90lb lab/box mix, who was born on Superbowl Sunday 2011. He has a big bark, but really he’s just a big baby.
  • J, at 13, is the second oldest (after Kgirl). His passion is games – any type of game, card game, board game, computer game, video game. If it’s a game, he’s usually up for it. When he’s not gaming, he’s reading or writing, watching tv, or hanging outside. Just don’t ask where his shoes are, cuz he won’t know :)
  • Z is nearly 11. You can always find him either outside or engaged with a computer game or watching a video. He’s on the autism spectrum and dyslexic, and receives speech therapy for articulation and language. He’s also amazingly creative, determined, and thoughtful. I call him “my idea guy” and am so thankful that I get to be his mom.
  • Little E is the youngest at nearly 9 and isn’t so little anymore. Her favorite color is pink, and she is obsessed with wolves, dogs, and pets in general. She spends her time drawing, making up stories, researching animals, and planning out her life. Her biggest concern is how she can be an artist, a vet, and a stay-at-home mom, cuz being a mom is important.
  • Kgirl is of course the oldest at 15. Every day you’ll find her with a book, reading or listening, while she creates something new with her hands. If she’s not at home, you’ll most likely find her at the library or at the archery range. But then again, she could be off kayaking or sailing, or zip-lining, at least until she finishes her pilot’s license. But for now, she’s usually at home, creating, writing, and helping me out.
  • And lastly, there’s Jazzy, Kgirl’s 9lb fluffball, who really is Kgirl’s very best friend, even if she is a dog. 

So that’s my crew! If you are interested, you can learn more about me here. I hope you’ll stick around, follow us on Facebook, and let us get to know you too!
