Before staying at home, I was an elementary teacher. Since I do teach my own children (mostly through play, not homeschooling) I don’t miss it TOO much!

Why do you blog?
My blog posts reflect what works for our family and what I am passionate about. Books, crafts, and cooking are at the top of my list! Blogging is more than a hobby. It’s a way to connect with other women and learn from one another. I began blogging (initially a family/personal blog) to share about my daughter’s speech progress and the activities we would do together to help her. Now I blog at Live, Learn, Love the things that may benefit others, too. I blog 3-5 times a week. (Summer has been slow with 3-4 posts per week.)

Do you homeschool?
Though we use a local preschool, I still teach my daughter (almost 5) at home as well, because she is eager to learn. Purposeful play was extremely important in helping her to overcome her speech disorder, and we still spend a lot of time together. Of course, my son (almost 3) also loves to play and learn, but he doesn’t request it as she did/does.

Do you have any hobbies?
Blogging, reading, cooking, and teaching my children (though I don’t homeschool) are my hobbies.
