Hi all! The lovely ladies over at 5 minutes for mom [dot] com are hosting this super-nifty blog party
(see! ^^^ )
which I am stoked to be able to dive into. (Hi to all of you UBPers)
Here's a little about me and the whole quiverfull thing.
First of all, I'm brand new to the blog-scene and am still getting my feet wet with how everything works. But I'm having a great time so far, and being challenged every step of the way. (yay for challenges!)
I'm a single mom of 7 (yep, you read that right... SEVEN!) totally fantastic kids ranging in age from 20 to 2.
(that's my aunt with the kids, she's the coolest 70 year old on the planet!)
The blog is diverse and ever-changing (as is life, I've found), but here are some things you can expect:
:: Books, and kid-related book activities such as This One.
:: Food and recipes. We
like love to eat, and cook and bake and to talk about it, like we did Here.
:: Crafts and Art. I love to crochet and paint and draw, and it must be genetic because all the kids do too. Tune in for frequent crafty posts like This and This, tutorials like This, and artist love like This.
:: ADHD info and posts. Both boys are diagnosed, and struggling - as we all are - to be their amazing selves regardless of difficulties.
:: Faith. We're Christians, and active in our local church. Our faith and our belief in God is central to all we do.
:: Funny stuff. My kids are pretty weird and hilarious. Once in a while I share that with the world. Like This One.
:: And Life. Ah, life. I'm a writer working out the kinks of moving from journals-full-of-stuff-that-nobody-reads to wildly-successful-and-respected-published-author... I'm also a girl who is something more than a mom or a cook or a teacher or any of those other things we label ourselves as. I try to keep it real once in a while, and acknowledge that life is about growth and change and always becoming. It's about the possible. Check some of that out Here, and Here, and HERE at my other little blog project.
Sooooo.... that was long and whatnot, but click around some of the links, and be sure to say hi so I can pop over to your place too! I'll be sure to bring a fresh-baked apple pie, and at least one bad pun.
peonies and pinwheels,
