I'm a homeschooling mother of five -- 3 boys ages 15, 13 & 11 years old, and two girls: 7 and 4 years old. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I am a natural childbirth advocate and fledgling birthing class instructor. I'm a CSA coordinator for a local organic farm. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship leader of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
