Hello!

Well, I am starting this blog after being inspired by several friends who have them! I don't know if I will be able to keep up with this like they do, but I like the idea of being able to let people know what is going on with our family and discuss relevant topics in a new way!

Hope this isn't too boring!

I am a homeschooling mom to 4 children. In addition to being a mom, wife, etc. I also work part time doing bookkeeping, coordinate a local support group, help with another homeschool group, etc., etc.!

Just when I thought I was eliminating some things in my life, my husband pointed out last night that I have already filled some of those "eliminated duties" with something else already!

I have to admit that I learned that from my dad! He could never keep still or relax. If he wasn't away from home working, he was home working outside in the yard or on the car!

I always have a constant to-do list running in my head and find it harder and harder to take the time for relaxation or hobbies for me to do! I am finally making the effort to work on scrapbooking after years of "collecting" but not doing anything with it! I have AA and SW to thank for the encouragement in the area and the inspiration to work on Faithbooking over "foo-foo scrapbooks"!

I love to read and rarely take the time to do it other than Bible study and homeschool related books! Once I do take time to start reading, I tend to get totally engrossed and just have to finish before I can go on with my life! I especially like Christian Historical Fiction now.

I also love art and drawing but I haven't had/made time to work on that much at all since I have had children--other than nature study journals from time to time and teaching Art Classes at our homeschool co-op! One day I will take the time to do it again!

That's all for now!
