Luke will graduate in the spring of 2014 and then Levi will start kindergarten in the fall of 2014 and graduate in 2026 (ish). That means the most students I will have in homeschool at one time is five. This is my third year with 5 of my kids in school.
Currently I have a toddler, two elementary-age students, two middle school students and one high school student.
I call my toddler "job-security."
People sometimes ask me what I do.
My mood usually determines my answer. Most often I smile and say, " I'm retired, so I just sit around watching TV and eating chocolate." If they actually look like they believe I do that, I add, "And I have 6 kids and homeschool them." After that comment I can't remember anybody ever asking what I retired from. That is the true part. So is the eating chocolate...it's the sitting around and watching TV part that I made up.
What? You want to know what I did before homeschooling?! Since you asked...here's the short version.
I spent 20 years in the Army before retiring.- yes, I retired. I have a master's degree in Nursing and I'm an adult nurse practitioner. I am a Dessert Storm veteran- I was in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital. I jumped out of airplanes and helicopters for fun. I've competed in marathons and triathlons...and finished two marathons in the past year. I grew up in PA, lived in CA, GA, TX, MA, WA, LA, Germany, spent summers in NJ and I've traveled to/in four continents. I think that's the short version.
And, oh, for the next 15 years...teaching, learning, being a wife, mother and daughter of The King!
