Getting to Know You…er, Me.

05.26.2011 | 4:53 pm | Uncategorized

I saw this on a homeschool blog and since I’m feeling under the weather today, took a little break to fill it out.

Your family is…

My husband and our two sons, G who is 7, and D who is 3. And me. :)

Name 5 homeschool products you cannot live without.

I’m not a “product” person; in other words, I’m frugal and live very simply (read that as VERY simply). I don’t spend money on gadgets and other things that most people think they can’t live without. Um, that said, I certainly couldn’t live without my laptop. It’s a crucial homeschooling tool for today; I do all my curriculum research and most of my curriculum-buying via my computer. So that’s the one thing I’d say I can’t live without. Everything else, I guess I already am surviving without.

What was your favorite toy as a child?

My bike. It took me on so many adventures.

What is your favorite toy as a grown-up?

My bike. It takes me on long, relaxing, enjoyable fitness rides.

When you were little, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to be a mom. Period. Mission accomplished.

How many houses have you lived in?

Just houses? Two growing up, and two that we’ve owned (including the current one).

Favorite homeschool hero?

No one in particular. I learn from all of them.

Favorite Bible verse?

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

If you could travel back in time, where would you go?

Oh, what a question for a history buff! I could come up with so many answers! I guess my top answer is medieval Europe, to experience their routine daily life. But I’d like to skip the plagues, thankyouverymuch.

What kind of homeschooler are you?

The lazy kind. :)
Okay, I’m also pretty traditional. I like to do textbooks & daily work for core subjects, but I also veer off and do non-traditional things in the subjects where that works out well (history, science).

Do you have an accent?

I’m Southern, y’all…what do you think? :)

What are you good at?

Projects around the house, being truly frugal and stretching every penny, organization, being a trustworthy friend, and writing.

What are you horrible at?

Time management, social situations, being liked by others.

Tell us something really strange about yourself.

Everything. :)
Um, okay. I have a hair phobia, specifically the hairs that accumulate in the shower drain (gag!).
