HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHRYN! Kathryn has been one of my dearest friends since childhood (of course she was "Ann" back then!). We were "best friends" in elementary school, long-distance pen-pals in high school, roomies in college, and maid/matron of honor in each other's weddings. And we've been in the hospital with one another to welcome babies into the world. I've been so blessed by her friendship and am thankful that God brought her into my life. I love you, Kathryn!
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).
