If you’re here expecting to see Mom’s Morning Coffee or Help 4 Your Homeschool, there’s no need to adjust your screen…

…you’re in the right place 🙂

We’ve incorporated both sites into Pat and Candy.com, where we will be continuing to deliver our best to you. Only difference is…we’re focusing on what we know best: home-and-hearth related issues such as parenting, marriage, home educating and the like!  So pour yourself a cuppa, get comfy and take a look around. We hope you benefit from our experience-inspired wisdom!

While you’ll mainly find homeschooling resources here, we know all the hats you wear as a mom, and that from time to time you need resources that feed or support you in a different way! If that’s the case today, feel free to check out some of the articles other readers have let us know are their favs… While we’re still working on some of these collections (below), feel free to peruse our site using the topics above or the handy-dandy search bar to your right.

Thanks for visiting…hope you’ll stay awhile and come back soon!
