Introduction I am an unschooling mom of two boys who are now 12 and 15. I have been married for seventeen years to Nicolas who is from Belgium and is an organic vegetable farmer. We love to travel but farming doesn't always make that really easy. Fortunately, we have close family in Holland, Montana, NY, MA and Australia so in order to see them we hope to be forced to occasionally take a big trip... in the meantime, we farm, play yu-gi-oh, play baseball, make up games, watch movies, play world of warcraft and hang out with friends.
Interests unschooling, art journaling and art supplies, growing up gracefully, dancing in my kitchen to dramatic great music while I cook the food my husband grows.
