About Me


I am a follower of Christ, saved by grace.  I met my handsome husband when I was 14 and a freshman in high school.  We married when I was 20, in August, 2001.  I graduated from college in May, 2003.  We added our first daughter one month later.  I have been a full-time MOM ever since.  We added our second in December, 2004...our third in June, 2006...our fourth and fifth in April, 2008.

I started homeschooling Ryleigh and Rugger in August, 2010 and Reise in 2012. We love the flexibility it's brought to our schedule, and feel like it's been a good fit for our family.  Homeschool isn't necessarily something I'd say I'm super passionate about.  It's just what seems to be working for us, for right now.

I currently have a very small daycare in my home, and we have been blessed by the very best daycare families on the planet.
