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. 🙂
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. 🙂
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).
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.
