I can't keep off this thing! Thought I would tell a bit about our family. Still trying to figure out how to put a real photo of moi on here. Soon! You're not missing much.
We are a family of 6, living and learning together, currently in North Dakota. We've lived here only a year, and move on average every 2-3 years. (This is the 4th place our 7 year old has lived!) Our oldest is turning 14 this week, and is in the 9th grade. He's a cool kid into playing his guitar, baseball, and reading Louis L'Amour novels. Our second son is 12, is my nature and science guy and spends hours writing stories and drawing. Our 9 yr old is a girl, and is my sensitive lil' cuddly bunny. She is very musical, artistic, and sweet natured. Our 7 yr old girl is a whirlwind of energy and loves to practice gymnastics, but takes time to give me lots of huggies and smooches when I need them. Hubby is career Air Force, with 19 years in, and loves his job. He's the best dad and spends so much time making memories with his kiddos. We enjoy moving,traveling, and seeing various parts of the world. Our most fave vacation ever was going to Australia when we were stationed in Guam. Hawaii is another favorite spot--we've been there twice and had a ball staying in the cabins at Bellows Air Station right on the beach.
I love homeschooling, being with my kids and my husband and doing my best to provide an atmosphere that is (hopefully) conducive to creativity and happiness. We laugh a lot, do zany things to each other, fight and make up! It's a gift to be home with these guys and I am aware of that every day. I am passionate about scrapbooking, music, but most of all, my family. I have done a few specks of writing here and there for TOS (we're in the Fall issue under Christmas traditions) and a couple of other hs publications. Some day I hope to do something like that full time. that's it for now!
