About Our Family

Hi!  I'm Sheryll.  My husband and I have four children and we  live in Victoria, Australia.  Where's Victoria?  It's as far south as you can go on mainland Australia.

We are here! | Our Aussie Homeschool
I'm actually an American.  I married one of those crazy Australians.  He went to university in America and that's where we met.  We made our home in the USA for more than a decade.  Then we began to feel the pull to come to Australia. A few things came together at just the right time that made us pretty sure that this was where we were supposed to be.  We shed our belongings, packed up the kids (our oldest two were ages four and turning two at the time), and moved to Australia.  Permanently, at least as far as we know (but you just never know what life has in store for you!).  I was about six months pregnant with number three when we moved.  Talk about a lot of life changes at one time!

But we made it.  And we're here.  And we’re settled.  And this feels like home now.  We had two kids in the US.  We had two kids here in Australia. 

About Us | Our Aussie Homeschool

Since this is a blog about homeschooling I guess I'd better mention that we've homeschooled from the start.  Find out more here.

I'm glad you're here.  I hope you'll take a look around.  Here's some links to get you started:



  1. Hello Sheryll just found your blog when I was looking for a place in Australia to buy Start Right Maths. It's wonderful that you're homeschooling. I too have three small children I'm schooling at home. I share some of your curriculum choices - there is an awful lot of choices to make on the web.
    Regards to you all!

    1. Hi Sophie, I haven't found an Aussie source for RightStart, I purchase it directly from their website:


      Ordering from them seemed to be the best price I could find with international shipping. Cheers!

  2. Sheryll-I came across your blog while searching Pinterest for Cave Paintings- Great blog! I am an art teacher and began my homeschool Mom adventure 27 years ago! It's a joy and a most womderful job to homeschool your kids and for them to have the space and time to explore and learn- Looks like you have fun!

  3. Very nice to meet you Sheryll :)

    1. Thank you! I found your blog a few months ago, always happy to meet another Aussie homeschool blogger!

  4. I'd love to link up some of your Apologia posts to my Apologia Year-End Round-Up if you don't mind.


  5. I love the calendar notebook but am having problems printing the cover page with no year and the write your name all year page. Every time I select those pages to print the calendar pages print instead. Would you be willing to send me those pages by themselves so I can get them printed. Thanks so much and sorry for an inconvenience. I am looking forward to using this with my Kindergartener this year.


  6. I am trying to print the calendar pages to use for my kindergartener this year. For some reason the cover page with no year and the Write my name all year pages will not print. Can you send me those two pages separate from the others so that I can get this wrapped up and bound. I appreciate it so much. So excited.

    1. I haven't had any other reports of this problem, hopefully you've figured it out by now. I'd first try downloading again and see if that works.


Thank you for commenting! Cheers!
