Yep. Been here for four days, but this is the first time I've had a minute to post. So far we've been to my brother's graduation, my other brother's home for a wonderful mother's day celebration, to some fun second hand stores, to see some of my old high school buds (hi Matt and Shelly!), and tomorrow we're off to have grandchildren pictures taken (with all 6 grandchildren) for my parents.
It's horrifically hot here (it hit at least 100 on our car thermometer last week) and the humidity is unbelievable. Just when I think I miss Texas, there's nothing like a brief visit during the early summer months to remind me of the miserable weather that I DON'T miss. We'll be back on the road in two more days--off to see more family and to Lee's doctoral graduation. Woohoo! Can't wait to catch up on all of your blog posts when we get home. I have like 300 of your posts in my google reader already. WOW! You all have been BUSY!
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).
