I have been blogging here for a little over a year. I started in a round about way. I must admit I never even knew there was something called a blog until this time period. My husband's friend at work was starting one. Then my husband was starting one. I in turn said, "I can do that.", so I started mine. I had so many years of fun childhood crafts spinning around in my head, I thought it would be great to share them with the world. I must tell you that I was amazed at what was out there, I still am. Sometimes I feel like I'm in over my head, but I keep trudging along. For those that stick with me, thanks so much. It really means a lot!
I have been working with young children since right out of college. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I went from college to a day care center--not my genre. I then started at my present place of employment, Cedarville Nursery School, and have been there ever since. This coming year will be my 21st year at Cedarville. I started there as the three-year-old teacher. I am still the teacher, after breaks from having children, but am also the director. I LOVE teaching the children it's some of my best days.
As for my family I have been married to the most wonderful guy for 23 years. I am so happy that he decided to spend the rest of his life with me. I just couldn't ask for a better person. We met in college and have been together ever since. We have five children together with a wide range of ages. Our oldest is 21, then the others follow--17, 13, 10, and 5. They keep us very busy and are a good group. We have four boys and one girl--following in my childhood. I was the only girl of 6.
I thought this one turned out cute.
Oldest and youngest together. (Love this picture)
We live in Southeastern Pennsylvania, a bit northwest of Philadelphia. Our family loves to hike, bike, go orienteering, and the beach. Well, let's say everyone loves the beach but my husband. He tolerates those yearly trips there for us--Thank you Dear! Our picnics are the best when Dad's cooking hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. I must admit though I have a real passion for those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for grill less picnics.
I don't think I could actually pick my favorite blog. There are SO MANY amazing blogs out there, and the ideas that come from them sometimes just leave me speechless. You can probably tell from my blog roll that I find many interesting.
I thank you for visiting and wish you and yours a fabulous summer of fun!
