About

I am a homeschooling mom of four precious girls. I dream of having a “real farm” that provides Clean Food for ourselves and others. That is a slow project around here. 🙂

Hard-workin' Hubby

Hubby is a blue-collar man who defied every schoolteacher’s expectation and became (fairly) civilized. He can’t spell any of the words in this sentence, but he can rebuild an engine, wire up a $40,000 irrigation pivot with a GPS system, and weld anything.

Daughter #1 is known here as “Big Sister.” She’s 10 (as of 9/11) and enjoys reading, crafts, playing with her sisters and being outdoors.

Daughter #2, “Li’l Artist”  will be 8 in May of 2012. She has enjoyed drawing and art since she could hold a pencil (though now usually restricts it to paper, thankfully). She has gluten and casein (milk protein) sensitivities, and has always been a wonderfully challenging child. 🙂

Weird Homeschoolers

Daughter #3, “Organique” is 4 (as of 9/11). She is a BUSY, challenging child, but full of sparkle and delight. She was my first born-at-home child, having made her arrival about a year after I began to shift out of mainstream food/medicine.

Daughter #4, “Miss Pleasant” is 2 (as of 8/11) and keeps up with her big sisters like nothing I’ve ever seen. She loves helping Big Sister bake cookies (and licking the bowl).

Miss Pleasant, almost 2, Summer 2011

We homeschool more-or-less with the Charlotte Mason method, using Ambleside Online to keep us on track.

I am 34 (as of 1/12) and enjoy caring for my family, learning and practicing every thing my mother and hers disdained: Homemaking, Husband-loving, Jesus-following, homeschooling, cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, ‘farming’, gardening, and the like.

    I am also 34 and birthday is 1/8. We have alot in common except I only know how to sew on buttons and I haven’t learned to knit yet. I do know how to crochet though. I wish I lived on a farm though. You are lucky.

    • We really are amazingly blessed, and it’s all been God. That is not to say that I don’t sometimes I lose hope, or wonder if we’ve missed it terribly in some fashion, but I know God is good…

      By the way, it’s good to ‘see’ you again. 🙂
