I am continuing my blog through the alphabet with Marcy from Ben and Me with this post about me! it's not that easy to come up with K words and since my name starts with K thought that might be fun. So here goes.
I am 44 years old. (How did that happen?)
On June 8th, my husband and I will celebrate our 21st anniversary.
My husband and I met when we were in high school when we both got jobs at a new Papa Gino's. I wasn't really looking for a job but a friend of mine was. The lady that did my interview and later called me to offer me a job intimidated me and I was afraid to say I wasn't interested. LOL (My friend didn't take the job.)
My husband and I have 10 children (we've also lost 2 to miscarriage). We have 8 daughters and 2 sons. The boys are in the middle. Our oldest is 19 and the youngest is 2.
We have always homeschooled.
I love Jesus for all he has done for me.
I was raised a Baptist and continue in the faith.
I am a musician. I sing and play the guitar. I used to play the oboe, flute and alto sax. (I miss the oboe.) I also have experience as a choir director. I traveled to Sweden and Canada with a singing group when I was in my early 20s.
I went to college for early childhood education, changed my mind and was accepted into the music program for voice and classical guitar but ultimately ended up majoring in math. I dropped out when I got married with about a year left to go. I do not regret that.
My younger son has Down syndrome. We didn't know he had Down syndrome until he was born. He also had a congenital heart defect and had open heart surgery when he was 4 months old.
I love knitting. It's a new hobby for me. I am addicted. I also like other crafts such as crocheting and sewing. I really enjoy making things.
I love to read. I especially love reading on my Kindle (and now my iPod touch too.)
I've lost just over 66 lbs in the last 19 months....and am still working at it.
I have one sister. She is a year younger than I am but she was moved up to 1st grade after 7 weeks of Kindergarten so we were always in the same grade. Many people thought we were twins or that I was the younger one...she is taller than I am.
I may add to this if I think of more things. :)
