About Me and Mine

Hello! I hope you enjoyed my little piece of the internet and have found something helpful, encouraging, or thought-provoking here.

I am Robin E. That’s me there. → me

I am a veteran homeschooler, with more than 15 years of homeschooling experience under my belt, and I anticipate another 8 or so. And as my blog title implies, I’m also a coffee drinker. But don’t go making the mistake that I’m some Starbucks, iced coffee, frappuccino fan. No, I’m an old fashioned gal. I live for my Colombian roast, brewed in my french press, with some whole milk. Every day.

So enough about me. Let’s talk about my people.

See this guy? Caleb is mcaleby oldest child and my only homeschool graduate (so far). This photo was taken just before he drove away for his second year of college pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I still cry every time I’m with him and then have to say good bye again.




This big smiled beauty is my 17-year-old high school senior, Lily. She’s a musician, a great cook, a future nurse, a fan-girling geek, and altogether the kind of person you’d enjoy meeting. She’s also crazy busy.



This gjudeuy is adorkable, right? The bow tie and suspenders are all this 13-year-old’s own fashion sense [insert an eye roll here]. Jude marches to the beat of his own drummer, and has been going out of his way to make me laugh since before he could speak. He’s like his father in that regard.




Hoyt is my sweetheart cuddle bunny, when he’s not being overly driven and competitive. This 11-year-old will go far, if only to beat everyone else. My job is to make sure he doesn’t take on too much stress and frustration along the way.



My dark eyedbelle, toothy smiled 9-year-old is Belle. She has the attention span of a gnat, but a personality as big as all outdoors. She is also my right hand man, helping me with just about everything.




Lastly, but very certainly not least, is my favorite person in the whole wide world. Matthew and I met while in the Air Force in Germany, and were married just four months later. This wonderful man makes me laugh every day, even when I probably shouldn’t be laughing (he even made me laugh when I was just a few hours post-op from abdominal surgery!).
