Pichea Family - Fall 2014

As a family, we are seeking to grow closer to one another and to God as we do life together. It is our prayer that our stories, strategies, successes, and failures might encourage you to do the same!

 

Meet Ashley Pichea

Work-from-Home, Homeschooling Mom and Wife

In the fall of 2008, I quit my job working outside of the home in order to become a stay-at-home mom to Jennifer and David. It was during that transition between working full-time and not working at all that I found myself in the wonderful world of blogging.

As I began to delve deeper into the world of blogging, I found myself enjoying much of the “behind-the-blog” scene, and sought to learn as much as I could about social media management, eBook publishing, and coding (HTML/CSS/PHP). I have worked with several bloggers and brands as a virtual blogging assistant and social media consultant over the past several years.

I am currently focused on creating and curating content that will encourage families seeking to do life together.

More About Our Family:

  • J and I were married in May 2005.
  • Jenny joined our family in January 2007. She is extremely advanced academically {was reading words at 2.5 years old} and has a love of learning. I started homeschooling her in the fall of 2009.
  • David joined our family in September 2008. He is “all boy” and keeps me on my toes. A “momma’s boy” through and through, his cute factor helps keep me sane during the rough days. He joined the homeschooling fun in the fall of 2012.
  • Christopher was born in May 2013 and is a “toddler tornado” who keeps us on our toes.

Currently we are homeschooling Jennifer and David. We are quite eclectic in our learning, especially as we have two very different learning styles and preferences. We are semi-unschooled as we try to use life lessons to build school lessons as well as modifying out-of-the-box curriculum to fit our needs, and we are constantly on the look-out for new resources to enhance our learning together at home.

We are currently living in a transitional period. In June 2013, J quit his job, we put our house on the market, he moved to Michigan to live with my parents, and the kids and I spent six months driving back and forth between Indiana and Michigan. In March of 2014, the kids and I were able to move to Michigan, and our house sold in April 2014. As of December 2014, we are still seeking a “permanent” situation – for housing and job – but are trusting God as we follow His leading.
