I have been trying to get on the 4 Real Learning Forum for MONTHS. It says I am registered but my membership has not been approved. I wish someone would just email me and say, "Rachel, we don't like you or your blog and you are not good enough for us." Then I would quit trying to get into some interesting conversations. I can read stuff but can't post. A bunch of the moms over there are moms from my Near Circles. My friend, Sara, is a member and she doesn't even know how she got on. WHAT GIVES!?! The worst thing is there is no way to contact whoever moderates the list and accepts members...so I am forever in the purgatory of waiting to be admitted. I know I can be a little rough around the edges, but I'm a devout Catholic homeschooling mama....I promise. I mean, c'mon, does it take 3 months to approve of someone?
I am happily married to Robert and joyfully (for the most part) mothering Andrew (22), Ben (15) and Autumn (12) I am a contradiction in terms to many: Christ follower, passionate Unschooler, fierce Pro-Life Libertarian, Doctor Who loving, Vampire obsessed, MUSE addicted, Siberian Husky crazed, hyperactive, hilarious, lusty wench!
Husband - Robert (who doesn't mind all my fangirl crushes)
Love of My Life, Lust of My Loins & Guard At My Back!
KID A - Andrew (and, yes, he loves Radiohead)
He Drums, He Sings, He writes songs, He Fences, He's a Flim Major at GSU, He works at Trader Joe's, He's My Kid and He's Oh So Cool!
KID B - Ben (my path to Heaven or Hell...depends on the day)
Video Gamer Extraordinaire (rarely is he disconnected from the MATRIX) and air soft enthusiast. He loves super hero and zombie flicks. So cute and cuddly with a side of Bipolar (to keep us on our toes!!)
KID C - Autumn (Born in Winter...her Native American name)
Our beautiful girlie! Minecraft junkie, fan -fiction fan, avid reader, movie & tv lover, dancer, artist, archer and all around free spirit.
Tivo (aka: Mr. Dawg)
Our big boy Husky. He loves everyone, but especially me. He's a real mama's boy.
Tru (aka: Tru-pa-doop)
Our big girl Husky, huge for a female (she is 2 years younger than TiVo). She loves playing with other dogs.
