Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome To The Ballinger Family Website!

Meet the Ballinger Family

We (Chris and Jessica Ballinger) are high school sweethearts who have been married for over 18 years & grateful parents of six amazing children, Bailey (15), Jacob (13), Parker (9), Duncan (5), Luke (3), and Teddy (1). As a homeschooling family, we love spending time together creating lasting memories through travel, exciting outings to the zoo, aquarium, and various museums, and activities at home. We enjoy sharing our journey and experiences in parenting, friendship, and life through wholesome videos that are entertaining for the whole family.

We are passionate about kindness, education, & inclusivity.

As parents of many kids, we have experience with different brains, personalities, and personal struggles. We highlight the positives of those journeys and share the tools (and experts) that have helped us along the way. Our child, Luke, has a rare chromosomal difference called 3q29 microdeletion. Every day, we are learning what that means for him personally, and we are so thankful to be able to share helpful information that isn’t as widely known to the general public- such as diagnostic tools like the chromosomal microarray and resources like Occupational therapy, Speech therapy, and Physical therapy.


As parents, we believe in interest-based learning and try our best to key-in to our kids’ personal passions in life.

Our daughter, Bailey, is an avid reader, writer, and loves learning different languages. Our son, Jacob, has a brilliant dyslexic mind that allows him to understand visual art & building in amazing ways. He enjoys directing, art, and creating 3D renders. Parker is a team gymnast and loves to dance and perform. Duncan’s clever wit always surprises us- as does his flair for animal pajamas! Luke is a ray of sunshine. He’s sweet and hilarious and loves blueberries and elephants. Teddy is our baby, and he’s a quiet, cuddly fellow who will only sleep if the Hamilton Broadway recording is playing. 


Our family is excited to share this website with you!
