About Me

family 9

The last time I updated my “about” page was two years ago.  Where does the time go??  Anyway, those of you who know me can skip this.  But for those of you who might be new to the neighborhood, here’s a little bit about who I am.  :)

I'm a forty-something mom to three boys (13, 11 and 6) which are as different as could be. I'm the wife of a very patient guy who works as an engineer and happens to be a wonderful handyman and mechanical marvel. How he puts up with my type A personality is anyone’s guess.  He's definitely the better half.

We live in Central Indiana. But, I grew up in rural Pennsylvania. If you are curious about how we came to live in the land of corn fields, hogs, and tornadoes, you can read about it here.

I have a degree in Elementary Education and spent a number of years in the classroom before I had kids.  Sometimes I miss it, but being at home for my boys is an irreplaceable gift.

I also have a degree in Bible, which is, sadly, no match for the questions my boys generate!  This site is a wonderful go-to page when we’re hunting for answers.

A perfect evening for me might include having coffee with a friend, playing in my flower beds, working on a family project, taking a long walk, or playing soccer with my boys.

Other hobbies of mine include nagging (just kidding!), reading, shopping yard-sales, camping, wood working, and embarrassing my older sons. Oh, and did I mention blogging?

Although I thrive on organization, I am learning to live with a certain amount of chaos and confusion (which comes in buckets with boys).

My desk, however, is my space, and I guard it well!

I am a horrible speller.

I am a recovering Face Book addict.

I'm impatient, and a worrier, and really don’t enjoy cooking.

When I'm frazzled, I can pop a gasket like no body's business.

I am SO not perfect.

However, I’m a child of the King, who loves me anyway, and He's not finished with me yet.

I enjoyed this! The picture is great. I didn't know you were a teacher. The site you included looks very helpful and I bookmarked it.
