About

**This is currently being updated**

Hello, my friends! I’m Pearl, but before I introduce myself properly, I want to tell you a bit about my blog.

✰ About the blog ✰

The Homeschooled Girl–Random Snippets from the Life of a Homeschooled Girl I started this blog in 2021 to grow in my writing craft, and consistency. I also wanted to share about my life. It’s interesting, I promise.

As you might be able to tell from the title, it’s a lifestyle blog. I mainly post about things I’ve been doing/did, artsy things, photography, DIY projects//ideas, snippets of my writing, and if there’s something else that I want to post about, I’ll probably stick it up here too.

I hope you enjoy my posts, and if you have any suggestions or ideas for a post, contact me! I’d love to hear from you. I write posts not only to make me happy, and you happy, but to bring glory to God. ❤

✰ About the blogger ✰

I’m a Jesus-loving homeschool girl, who loves blogging, writing, and photography. I also enjoy taking long walks in the woods with my siblings, playing the piano, messing around with the graphic design, and writing letters. I live in the Midwest with my seven siblings and terrific parents.

A few facts about me:

I love the colors yellow and blue. Well, actually, I LOVE COLORS in general, but yellow and blue are my favorites.

Autumn is my favorite season for so many different reasons! I love the colors, the feeling of winter near, and so many other reasons. ❤

I am the third of eight kids. I have three sisters, Grace, Mercy, and Jewel. And four brothers, Malachi, Luke and Levi (twins!), and Ezekiel.

I love photography – I’m not very good at it yet, but I do enjoy it and have fun practicing with my camera. You’ll see a lot of my photos on my blog too!

I love to play Capture the Flag, Kick the Can, Sardines, Freeze Tag, and lots of other games. Skiing is definitely my favorite sport – but I’ve also played soccer for 7 years, and hope to run cross country too.

I’m homeschooled and have been my whole life. Which you probably already knew, hence the name of this blog. I love homeschooling so much!

I’m a crazy bookworm, and I’m almost always reading more than one book at once. Some of my favorites are The Penderwicks, Holly’s Heart, Homeless Bird, Nory Ryan’s Song, Annie’s War, Winter Sky, and Maniac Magee.

I love spending time outdoors! Hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, kayaking, and camping, are some of my favorite things to do. (I love hikes that end with something as beautiful as this, especially. )

I love watching the sunset and the sunrise. ❤

I’m a writer! Writing is one of my biggest passions and it’s the reason I started this blog. I write middle-grade contemporary and historical fiction. I also dabble in nonfiction too. I’m a member of the Young Writer’s Workshop too, and I’ve learned so much about writing from that.

Photo from one of our adventures! 😀

I love taking long walks and exploring our woods with my siblings. ❤

Anyway, that’s a bit about me! Comment below and let me know if we have anything in common or anything else you’d like to say. – What’s your favorite book? Do you have a bullet journal? Let’s get to know each other!

      1. Corrie–When you go to edit your gravatar, in the sidebar, there should be something that says “Photo Gallery” click that, and from there you can add photos to your gallery.

  2. Ooh, awesome! Nice to meet you, Daniel! =D
    YES! IT IS!!
    My favorite character would probably have to Amanda Beale. . .second might be her younger siblings because they remind of my twin brothers when they were little SO much. You?

    1. Likewise!
      Nice. The prose, the quirkiness, the depth, the realisticness (is that even a word?), the characters… It’s just so well written.
      Hey, me too! 0-o Yeah, Hester and Lester are fun. But my second. . . I don’t know. I love the Perkins mother, but she’s like a super side character. Probably either Maniac or the two little McNab brothers.

  3. Wow. 🤩

    I just found you blog from your comment on Maggie’s most recent post, and I have to say: it’s so… clean, nice, serene.

    It might sound weird using those adjectives, but that’s just what I feel. I really love your honesty and simplicity in writing. And I love your simple, clean blog design.

    I’m looking forward to reading your posts, Pearl! 👍🏾🤗😊

      1. Ahh, when you ask a writer who their favorite author is, prepare for a long answer. XD I honestly have way too many, but Jeanne Birdsall, Janette Oke, Beverly Lewis, Beverly Cleary, Jerry Spinelli, and Gloria Whelan just to name a few. What about you?

  5. Are you sure we aren’t twins somehow!?!? Hi my name is Sawyer kinda like the book Tom Sawyer but I am a girl lol😂. I have siblings as well and we walk in the woods by the pond. I absolutely adore sunsets too! They just seem to beautiful to be true. Creeks are gorgeous and feeling the running water in between my fingers. It is like in story books. I love to star gaze at the beautiful night sky too!

    Autumn is also my favorite🍁! I think it or pretty watching the leaves change color and I love the nice breeze. I like blue But mostly dark teal. I am the oldest of 4. I have three brothers who can drive me crazy sometimes lol. Capture the flag is an awesome game I play with my brothers. but I sometimes have to let them win since they are to young to understand. I bet with all your siblings it is tiring. I love outside game mostly but when it comes to inside ones I like Uno. I have been homeschooled my whole life too! I am currently halfway through 7th grade and love reading as well. Hmm favorite book: I think maybe Robin Crusoe or White fang. I do not have a bullet journal but I want to. i just have a journal! Okay well I hope you are able to talk and check out my blog too! I love yours❤️

    1. Hey, Sawyer! XDXD It sounds like we are a lot alike. That’s cool. 🙂 Ayyy, yes, sunsets, creeks, ponds, and walks are all lovely. ❤

      Ooh, awesome, those are some of my favorite things about Autumn too. I totally get that, a lot of mine are too young to understand as well. Haha, well it can be sometimes (and all the noise can be annoying too, but I guess that's what you can expect when you have 10 people in one house) That's so awesome! I hope you can, it's really neat.

      And I'd love to chat with you more! 😀 I believe I've been following your for a while now, but I'm going to check it out again. =D Thank you. ❤ I'm glad!
