She sips non-fat cappuccinos in cafes in her Kootenay Mountain hometown, waiting for her four children to finish their dance, choir, soccer, curling or music lessons. Oh, and she writes.
She presently homeschools three of her four children, spending much of her days giving writing feedback, practicing French sentences and Latin verbs, and reading on plate tectonics or ancient civilizations from mid-September to late April. By February, she wants to fly to a tropical location. And by April’s end, she has decided to unschool, again.
She bakes bread, ferments sauerkraut, keeps a ready supply of plum jam and hot meals. She sells a couple dozen eggs a week, thanks to the Cluckingham Palace ladies and happy Henry the 8th. She trains and walks her Great Pyrenees puppy, Violet.
Oh and yes, in her creative time, she blogs on her homeschooling, homesteading life. She writes magazine articles, works on her novel, works on a Homeschool Mama Self-Care book, and stares at impressionist art, listens to classical and jazz, and reads like a hungry baby bird.
