So you want to know more about me?
Here's the place!
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Things do not change; we change.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas any more.”
~ Dorothy (The Wizard of Oz)
Change … that’s what my life has been all about for the past several years. So I suppose that means I’m alive!
When I began my first website (Unschooling in Alabama) in 1999, we had been homeschooling for three years. That was thirteen years ago, although sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday. Much has changed in those thirteen years. In 2002 I began this website in order to provide more information to homeschoolers. We were homeschoolers for eleven years in Alabama and one year in Florida, graduating three children from our home school in the process.
Currently my husband and I live in southeastern Arizona, learning to enjoy an empty nest as our children are adults now. Our eldest child, Kat and her daughter (our granddaughter, Miss Munchkin) live in Florida, our middle child, David, is going to college in Arizona, and our youngest child, Charles, is married, has a daughter (our second granddaughter, Liana Rose) and lives in Alabama.
I enjoy crocheting, gardening, photography, and reading. I also now have time to continue building this and other websites. Updates and site changes are in the future for LeapingFromTheBox.com. I plan to add more of my homeschooling and unschooling articles to the site!
I also have two blogs:
The official LeapingFromTheBox.com Blog
and my personal blog Musings, Mischief and Mayhem
Join me as I share my learning experiences and adventures!
P.S. And if you are wondering about the crown in my picture, it was near my birthday last year (spring 2009) and Miss Munchkin requested that I wear one of her many princess crowns for the day. What do you do when your granddaughter wants you to be a princess for the day? You wear a crown! My daughter snapped the picture and it has turned out to be my very favorite picture with a lot of good memories attached to it. Everyone should be a princess for at least one day!
