About Emmetts Expeditions
Emmett and Ashley on Dapper Day

Hello! My name is Ashley. I’m the owner, writer, designer, and mom at Emmett’s Expeditions. Creating and learning have always been things I love to do. When my son started reading before the age of two, I had to get creative. I was constantly putting together learning activities to keep him occupied.

In 2015 I released my first educational products. They were for learning about wildlife of the go.  I called them FieldCards and Pocket FieldCards. Each card was watercolor illustrated with nature facts and quick info about the species. Now, I design and write digital lesson bundles on all sorts of nature science topics for homeschoolers.

Emmett is my amazing son! He has unlimited questions waiting to be solved on expeditions. You can expect to see lots of photos of him. Some outdoors or with his homeschool projects because… #clickinmoms! Seriously though, what better way to document the amazing life of a homeschooler?

Step 5: Is Emmett’s Expeditions right for you?

  • Spotted this centipede traveling beneath the fallen leaves on the Algonquin Trail last weekend.
  • Does your kiddo love getting their picture taken? .
Emmett loves getting me to take pictures as much as I do. Every chance he got to be on top of the rocks during our hike he’d say, “Mom, can you take my picture?”
  • This past weekend Emmett, Grandpa, and I went camping with our Cub Scout pack. Even though it was cold and we had a great time.
  • One thing I really missed about Virginia is the autumn colors. Right now I’m seeing a lot of green left but there is plenty of trees that are full on autumn. I can’t wait for our hike this weekend so I can try to capture all the autumn beauty.
  • Have you ever seen this bug? It’s going to be on our next What Is That Wednesday post.
  • Emmett and I went to Make Your Own Mickey Mouse Pizza at Malawi’s Pizza yesterday. It was fun to make the pizzas and visit a new place.  I love that Malawi’s sends meals to children in need.
  • How is the weather where you are? Today it is cold here! It’s making me miss the nicer weather at Beverly Beach. I loved how this picture turned out of Emmett and his grandpa the morning we left Florida.
  • One of our favorite Disney World traditions is seeing the fireworks every night we are there. We’ve watched them from the lake at Fort Wilderness Campground, in front of the castle at Magic Kingdom, while in EPCOT, and even at my sister’s wedding reception in the Grand Floridian. 
For the first time however, Emmett and I were by the carousel before the fireworks. So we found a “bench” on the new arch walls they have outside of Bell’s castle. We looked to the back of the castle and were positively surprised to find out, there were fireworks going off all around us. It was a truly spectacular view! So if you’ve seen the light show in front of the castle time and time again, try visiting the back of the castle. It’s really incredible and not as crowded.
