About me

Introduction I'm a mom, former homeschooled our daughters all who are now grown and left home. We also have several children we watch part time. Our 5 girls include 2 sets of twins. We farm- have cows, horses, ducks, pigs, chickens, rabbits, dogs,cats & fish. We plant a garden & can & freeze our food. We have 2 stocked ponds, an orchard, & vineyard. Each year we try to expand. Our goal to be more of a homesteading family than a farm family. My husband works full time outside of the home, & is a fire fighter, both paid and volunteer; I also work with little ones in a nearby school district I write part time & and sell articles to both print & online publications. I also own a business that teaches CPR, First Aid, babysitting 101, & more. My hobbies include sewing, reading, baking, needle work, gardening, camping & genealogy, volunteer firefighting & EMT.
