Hmmm. It would seem that I have far too much free time and need to take on yet another thing to do every day. Or not! This just seemed like a fun way to track our progress as a homeschool family.
Welcome to our life. We are:
Victoria— Age 9, book lover, animal lover (especially endangered animals and very especially tigers), doctor wannabe (since she was 2), nature lover, soccer enthusiast, social activist, poet, artist, classic oldest child
Annalee— Very nearly age 8, fairy wannabe, lover of all things pink and girlie, math whiz, book fiend, nature child, drama queen, artist, singer/songwriter, tenderheart, little girl with a curl right in the middle of her forehead
Jack— Age 4, whirlwind, goofball, athlete, lover of all things green, book lover, artist, mama’s boy, daddy’s boy, animal lover, rough and tumble kid, sweetheart, comedian, songwriter, crazymaker, peanut allergic boy
Alex— Baby, big, bouncy, happy, hooting, climbing, curious, opinionated, loving, charming, breastfed, co-sleeping, darling, in-arms, toothless, blue-eyed, talkative, lightning fast, joyful, perfect haired darling little surprise present
Daryl/Daddy— Older than he’d like to be. Daryl teaches people to throw with the atlatl (ancient spear throwing tool), makes juggling sticks, writes, manages web sites, volunteers for various historic sites and helps HS the kids. He likes everything from Sappho to the Simpsons and knows Everything. Really. It’s sometimes annoying but mostly really cool. I adore him but I don’t let on. 😉
Me (Alicia)— Getting up there in age despite my best efforts, I am a former domestic violence advocate and poet/author. I run Magical Childhood and too many e-mail lists. I love crafts, reading, learning, travel, gardening, art and cooking.
I figured I’d just toss up fun stuff we did here, along with using it as another way of keeping track of where HSing takes us. Speaking of which, I should get off the computer and get to it!
