More About Me

My name is Tracy.  I worked outside of the home for the first two years of being a mom, I was incredibly blessed to spend seven years at home with my three boys. They are now 6, 9 and 11 years old. Most of what you will see here on this blog are from those seven precious years, but because of some unforeseen circumstances I have returned to work and my boys are now attending school.  I do hope to continue to write, although, I am sure less frequently, about the challenges of going from a homeschooling Mom to a working Mom and just being a Mom in general.   

Why I started this blog - I have been thinking for some time now that it would be fun to have a blog. It would be so neat if I had something of value to share with other Moms. I don't feel like I am an extraordinary Mom in any way. I mostly try to keep my head above water. I don't craft, I don't cook, I don't sew my children's clothes, I don't coupon and so on. So what do I do? Who am I as a Mom? I am the Mom with a dandelion in my hair as I walk into church on Sunday morning. The dandelion was a gift from my son. The value of that dandelion and that moment is immeasurable to me. 

For me, the dandelion has always been a symbol of childhood. We adults call it a weed, but children see it as a beautiful flower, meant to be given to someone they love. 

Before staying at home I worked at a Memory Care community for people living with Alzheimer's and other dementia's. I have seen lives cut short, adventures that were never had.  I have also seen true and unwavering love between spouses and between sons and mothers.

So how would I sum myself up, I am a Mom who is trying.  I love and cherish my kids and know how precious this time is with them because I have seen how quickly it can be gone.  I hope and pray, that by God's grace, I will do my job well, and some day my sons will come to see me in my old age and bring me a dandelion for my hair.   

About this Blog
This blog has developed over time and keeps changing as our life changes.  Many of the posts are about our unexpected homeschool journey.  To see why we homeschool click here.

I was also a Blog Ambassador and the Blog Coordinator for Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum.  Many of my posts will touch on our use of Mother Goose Time.  I had the privilege of visiting the  headquarters and I have gained even more love for this company and those people who make this amazing product.  I feel like God certainly honored my quiet prayer when I started this blog by allowing me to work from home for a time.
