My name is Tonya. I’m a stay-at-home-mom with two incredible children. I have green eyes and freckles. I love to bake. I love to read. I love taking photos of my kids. I’m very opinionated. I’m not a dog person. I hate feet.
My family is on a journey. An adventure to take every day as a new opportunity to learn something, add joy to someone’s life, be ourselves and live to our fullest capacity. I don’t share our journey lightly, or expect that you will agree with everything I say.
We homeschool, but I don’t think that homeschooling is necessarily what is best for every child/family. We changed course from public school because we thought it was best for us. We chose a classical method because it made sense to us. That doesn’t mean you’ll agree. And I’m completely ok with that. Part of the beauty and intrigue of the world is all the contrasting views. Without dissonance, we wouldn’t have the fully formed robust symphony of life.
With that in mind, I created Dissonant Symphony. It’s about the journey to complete a masterpiece of life. About struggles, triumphs, how life changes and how it stays the same. I’ll be talking about activities, field trips, projects, Classical Conversations, my walk with the Lord and all the beautiful things that make life a cacophony of sound. I hope you enjoy following our adventures and share with me your own experiences. Your voice adds a needed layer in the always transforming symphony that makes up this blog.
