Another September 30th is already here. I've always loved my birthday--the start of the school year, my birthstone, the weather, the fact that it's just a week after my mom's birthday and I share the day with my brother-in-law Gary, it's not too close to Christmas, etc...
I know it's not January 1st, but it's my birthday so I can do what I want to and this year I'm making a new year resolution. My resolution is to get more sleep. *YAWN* I seriously think I'm aging faster than normal primarily because of lack of sleep/rest. And I'm just plain ole not much fun to be around lately. I have been staying up WAY past my bedtime doing grad school work lately, so this next year I hope to some how figure out how to fit in about 6 daily hours of school work to 2 hours of free time each day. If you have any ideas, email me!
That's really all I wanted to say this year. But I'd love it if you'd go give my mom's new blog some love. She wrote up a fabulous post about my birth today. Go HERE to visit her! And for those who didn't already know: Shaye is a contraction for Shannon Rae.
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).
