About Me

Since Tim and I had tomato soup and grilled cheese for dinner, and since we're planning on eating from the cupboard all week, I thought I'd share a little bit about myself.

I'm the youngest of two girls. My older sister is two years, eight days, and a few minutes older than me. I grew up in the Minneapolis area (Minnesota), and actually didn't mind the snow.

Now, one of my cousin (who was just visiting last weekend) has a memory like an elephant. She can tell you vivid details from each year of life. She'll say something like, "I loved playing kickball in second grade, but I didn't like it as much in third grade.." I don't have as specific of memories, and I really don't have as good of a timeline in my head.

My sister and I were homeschooled until highschool; I think that's why the grades all run together in my memory. I really loved being homeschooled. I think it's a great way to go! I could go on and on about it, but I won't do that right here and now. (I may do it some point, though.)

When I was young, I enjoyed reading and playing make believe with my sister. We had so much fun pretending to live on a farm and ride horses. We'd also pretended to be on space ships, and built forts, and played with dolls and Lincoln logs and legos. Oh, what fun we had!

Because we were homeschooled, we did a ton of fun stuff! We were in a homeschool band, went on field trips with other homeschooling families, went to the nature center, and had a weekly co-op meeting. We made wonderful friends, many of whom are still our good friends today.

I was blessed to have such a good childhood. I'll tell you more about my older childhood years later this week.

Let me know if you have a specific question about me that you'd like me to answer!

I love this Sarah!! I want to homeschool when we have kids, although I was not homeschooled when I was growing up (wish I was!), so I can't wait to have adventures like that with my own kids one day!! :-)

We homeschool, too. It definitely is fun to get to do a lot of the things kids don't normally get to do while they're in school! :)
