Welcome! Pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy some time here. My mission is to encourage and empower you in your homeschooling journey. I share
- informative reviews of products for homeschooling families (curriculum, nonfiction, and fiction, especially historical fiction)
- information and resources for homeschooling high school
- weekly wrap-ups of our life and homeschool
- glimpses into nature
- tips that benefit your health, pocketbook, and learning
- a weekly fitness accountability group
As you read I hope you will benefit from what I share, realizing that all families, like ours, are imperfect. However, the vast majority of us are doing our very best and we all need companions and encouragement on the way.
I’m a child of God by grace, a wife and homeschooling mother (of 5 children ages 10-20) by calling, and a physicist by virtue of too many years of university.
Despite my PhD, I currently do not ‘do science’ but rather invest my time in family-friendly pursuits such as gardening, hiking, homemaking, learning about health, reading aloud, making music, learning how to homeschool, reviewing homeschool-friendly products, blogging, and trying to be a good steward of our time, money, and energy.
Little bits of all of those pursuits will make it into Tea Time with Annie Kate at various times.
At my husband’s request, I post no pictures or names of our family. Even my lovely name, Annie Kate, is a pseudonym derived from my dear ancestors who, long ago, wore some of the Netherlands’ most beautiful costumes.
Feel free to comment, ask questions, or request posts on any specific topic. I’m also always open to reviewing quality homeschool-friendly resources. You can contact me at
