Introduction

Yeah, so I’m terrible at introductions whether it be at dinner, or a new classroom, or giving a presentation. Turns out that this feels exactly the same. Just what would you want to know?

Day Lillies by the house (and a few weeds)

So here goes, this is a snapshot of my life right now: I’m happily married to an amazing fabricator and welder. We have four fantastic (and sometimes frustrating) children. My boys are the bookends at ages 16 and 11. The girls are in the middle at 14 and 15. I am a Humanities Teacher (combines English and Social Studies).

We live in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, gorgeous but lonnnnnnnng winters. We’re switching over from working full time to Homesteading full time. A few years ago we cleared a section of our lot. We keep expanding our garden. This year we increased our chicken math and added ducks. I’m beginning to craft and blog for money, not just gifts and fun.

Those Rhode Island Red Cross chickens and crazy turkeys.

  1. I am so glad to ‘find’ you! I too am switching from full-time teacher (MS science) to being more at home at our farm – we grow xmas trees & I raise fiber sheep (oh, and we dabble in gardens and just got baby chicks and now piggies!). The pandemic has definitely shifted my focus! I also live right up the road from you — feel free to find me at Laughing Crow Farm on facebook 🙂 Would love to meet you!!!
