Well, I just had to pop on here today to announce that I finally found something that would work for Lee's Valentine's Day gift. I'm still sad about the pillowcase and will continue looking for it, but I found another thing to do for this year. There was another sweet childhood memory Lee has shared about being in first grade. His teacher was talking to the class and when she looked up she noticed that Lee had his fingers plugging his ears. She walked over to him and asked him what he was doing. He responded, "Oh, I already know all this stuff, so I'm just not listening."
We've laughed over the story many times. So when I found this mug carver that specialized coffee mugs to the customer's liking (http://stores.ebay.com/Crystal-Rose) I had to jump on board and get the quote carved in stone, so to speak. The picture above is the final product.
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
