I grew up in a military family and moved 10 times by the time I turned 18.  I met my husband, Mark, at Cincinnati Christian University.  We have been married for almost 19 years and have five children between the ages of 2 and 16.  During the past two decades, we have lived in various parts of the U.S., Europe, and Southeast Asia.  Our children have attended public school, private international schools, and been homeschooled.  I have homeschooled for over six years, everything from kindergarten to 10th grade.  I am an eclectic homeschooler.

In this blog, for our family’s privacy, I will refer to our kids as

Alpha—son#1…sixteen year old Junior who has taught himself to play guitar, remembers almost everything he reads,  and is our philosphical deep thinker

Bravo—daughter #1…fourteen year old Freshman who loves to read (especially historical ficiton), enjoys crafts of all kinds, loves wolves, and is a great cook

Charlie—daughter #2…twelve year old seventh grader who adores horses, loves to read, and likes taking walks

Delta—son #2…eight year old third grader who is a ball of energy, plays soccer and Rock Band with equal enthusiasm, and loves to be with people

Echo—son #3…three year old charmer who has a great sense of rhythm and loves the outdoors

I am also a Co-Director of TRAIN International, an organization that equips people to be more effective in cross-cultural life and work.
