Tag, I’m it.


Nothing Fancy tagged me with this meme, except it has a pass-it-on part that I passed on.
I just don’t know many other bloggers yet! But thanks for asking to get to know me a little better! It was sure fun reading about you. Such a rainy day seemed a great time to answer it.


(1)  What was I doing 10 years ago?

1998 was a pretty wild year for me. DH was appointed project manager for a new design his company was manufacturing for Boeing. This meant several months in Seattle, then a year designing in Long Beach, then a transfer from Texas (where we lived at the time), to Georgia (where this part would be built). Georgia wouldn’t figure into 1998, but I had three kids at the time, ages 8 to 4, so DH arranged for us to spend 6 weeks of his Seattle stint up there with him. I was homeschooling, so we packed a Rubbermaid of schoolwork and sent to the hotel. It was like one long field trip. After that, we moved into an apartment in Seal Beach, CA, three kids sleeping in one room; one room for a playroom; and a bedroom for us. We were within walking distance of the beach. Q turned 9 there and M turned 6, and we continued to homeschool. By the end of the year I was able to announce their best Christmas gift, an impending little brother. Busy year.

    I’m contnually amazed @ the # of former teachers who, faced w/an option choose to h.s. their own kids. I’m one of them. After teaching in public schools for two decades, watching the “miracle of socialization” turn into the epitome of hell institutionalized, I needed something better for my daughter. One on one learning compared to one on thirty? There is no comparison…and you DO NOT have to be a teacher to do it. You need to be able to read, have a sincere desire, and love your kid.
