Welcome to Fields of Daisies !
My name is Willow Chenoah.
I am a product of two fantastic, free-thinking parents who happened to have married in a field of daisies in Woodstock, New York where I spent my early childhood, thus my name, weeping tree white dove. 🙂
However, that has nothing whatsoever to do with this blog, with the exception of the easy and laid back kind of community you’ll find here. If you’re still wondering why this blog is named Fields of Daisies,
I have three amazing children that have taught me more about living, and loving, and knowing God than anything else I can think of.
We have been homeschooling for more than 15 years … it’s been the best of times and the worst of times (fewer of these for sure).
We have homeschooled in small towns and big cities…in foreign countries and in our rural home town…on buses, in cars, and on planes…in times of plenty and in lean times too.
Years ago, when I first started homeschooling, my sister-in-law and I coined the term “a fields of daisies day” to describe one of those magnificent living, learning, loving kind of days spent with our kiddos.
You know that kind of day.
The trip to the beach to collect & classify seashells… the afternoon hike in the fall to collect leaves…everyone sprawled out under a big shady tree “doing school”… strolling through an art museum on a Monday morning while the rest of the world is back to the grind.
And then all of a sudden you look up and you are struck with what a great blessing it is to be right where you are in that moment.
Now that my kiddos are all flying the nest, I can’t bear to part with all of the odds and ends that hold so many memories of fun times! I came across a binder full of unit studies… and so I wanted to try to share them with you. My wish is that you will find some ideas of mine that will spark the passion of learning in your family….and that you will find yourselves pausing in the midst of the noise and mess and chaos of an ordinary day & realize that you are having a “fields of daisies” kind of a day!
~Much grace & peace to you~
