Here we go!




Well, I'm not sure how interesting all this will be, but here we go!

We are a homeschooling family of 6 in Bulldawg country. My oldest daughter is married and lives in Philadelphia, where she is very smart, orgainized and efficient and earning her own living (!) after obtaining her master's degree in 2006. We're very proud.

The rest of us live together in God's country and keep pretty busy. Dearest hubby and I married in 1994 and proceeded to have two biological children and adopt two from Russia.

Our bookworm is 11 and a voracious reader while hating 6th grade math. The baseball king is a ball player - any kind of ball - 9 years old and in the 3rd grade. His attitude is "why do school when you can play?". Little Diva is truly our diva - 6 years old, born in St. Petersburg, Russia. She finished kindergarten work in about 3-1/2 months and is working on 1st grade material. Scooter hails from Murmansk, Russia, is 4 and is ALL BOY!

We also enjoy the company of Esther, the cat (who hates everyone but Hannah), Penny, the mini dauchsand, Kate, the black lab and two (at this moment) fish.

I have semi-retired from the practice of law and enjoy an adoption practice part time. We are busy in our church and love to go camping! You'll be hearing more about THAT later.......

Sweetie, remember that Christmas with a large family and tremendous amounts of children can leave even the most stalwart terrified.
