I blog regularly at


I am a Catholic wife and and homeschooling mother of six from 3 to 19.  When it comes to giving birth, I have done it all!  Questionable Cesarean, VBAC in the hospital with a nurse midwife, two homebirths, emergency cesarean under general anesthesia, scheduled Cesarean and a stillbirth at 23 weeks. 


My husband and I will have our 30th wedding anniversary in August 2009.  I will also hit the big 5 0 next year!

My husband is  self-employed business may who repairs musical instruments, but he also does many handyman jobs.  I am a medical transcriptionist, working in the early morning and late evening so that I can homeschool our kids in between.  

We have homeschooled all of our kids since my oldest was in kindergarten. My oldest is now 20 yers old and is working as a certified emergency medical technician hoping to get into some firefighting training later this year.   My newest challenge is to help my high school sophmore earn as many college credits through CLEP exams as possible.  The other kids and I do history, science and literature together every day with math and language arts individually.  I really need my household to run smoothly.


We take our Catholic Faith very seriously.  No cafeteria Catholics here.
