Homeschooled from first grade all the way through highschool; primarily through a Charlotte Mason literature based method. I am the oldest of seven children (one other a graduate) and currently pursuing a degree in history.
Dad spent 20 years in the Air Force before retiring from the military and starting a new career life in 2003. Mom loves to homeschool her children and research the Charlotte Mason method of education.
My siblings add joy to my life; I cannot imagine not having the blessing of their company. We have widely divergent tastes, but at least we all appreciate Jane Austen. ;-)
We are members of a local church of Christ. Without Christ, I could do nothing.
