Just today my home school group put out its newsletter. This group is much larger than my last group so there are plenty of people I have yet to meet. Never mind that I have been very absent from participating in much of what the group does ever since I moved here. I am hoping to change that over the next few months as soon as my little Drew settles into his new life a bit more.
Pete got flight school and we moved to Pensacola for 18 months. That was the first place that any of our friends had kids and we thought that was so WEIRD!! Have Kids?? That was for "older" people...
We got stationed in San Diego for 4 years where I had 2 of my girls. We moved from San Diego with NO INTENTION of EVER having more kids.
We then moved to our beloved Alaska where I found my beloved Catholic faith and proceeded to make 3 babies there. My third baby was born at 20 weeks and we sadly did not get to keep him..
Next came Jack, then 12 months later Lucy. We then moved to Alabama . Had Priscilla. Moved to Virginia . Then had Drew...
I like to knit. I like to take pictures of things I knit. I like to look at pictures other people take of their knitting. I like to think I can sew. I like to paint furniture. I like to have Pete paint rooms of our house.
I like to talk A LOT!!
If you ask me how I am doing you are likely to get a lot more info than you thought was coming...
I like to participate in lots of things but you do not want me leading anything. Not because I am a bad leader...I am just not good with follow, so things go undone that should get done. I will execute things people have created. I go to bed early and get up early. I have been running since Pete and I got married anywhere from 3-5 miles 4-6 times a week for like 15 years. I do not consider myself a "runner". I am just someone who runs and I am not that good at it.
I have home schooled for as long as I had kids in need of school. I was a teacher for like 10 minutes before I had Emily. I am not sure what the future holds for our home school, or for anything for that matter, but I do know that everyday I become more aware of these fleeting moments with all my babes under my care.
One more thing...this is also not the blog to come to for great ideas on home schooling, or creative ways to walk through the liturgical year with your family. You will not be given great inspiration on what to make for dinner. You will not be ask to vote for my blog for any specific award. I am a blogger who blogs about...me. I am an expert on not much...but I found I can fill a line or to out about myself. So..enjoy!
And as a small p.s.
I am not that GREAT with names but I am super excited to meet new people. I can be a good time especially if you are up for hanging out with lots of craziness going on around you, never finishing a sentence and usually having to lend me a burp cloth because I never come prepared for ANYTHING!!
