About meI started reading about age two, and haven't stopped. I think in words, eat them for supper, and sometimes awaken in the night with a need to consult the dictionary.

I'm hesitant to acknowledge that I'm a homeschooling mother, because I don't fit in with most homeschool groups. I think regular academic testing is great. I love a good scope and sequence, don't buy all the claims of classical educators, and think many (but not all) of Charlotte Mason devotees are following an anachronistic plan with little understanding of the philosophy their plan is based on. (Just count how many times someone says they combine Charlotte Mason with Classical education.) On the other hand, homeschooling gives me a fantastic excuse to buy more books. I enjoy few things better than watching my children learn.

About my libraryI particularly enjoy children's books, books on the English language, and books on education/special education. My husband's books include many medical titles and WW2 and airplane history books.

I read and write from a Christian World View; thus, my annotations sometimes includes concerns and comments (about philosophy, moral tone, or objectionable elements) that make the most sense within this context.
