I am a 30-something homeschooling mom to 7 kids, a Sonic happy hour addict, a photographer, a housekeeper, an aspiring exercise addict (remember that Sonic addiction…), animal wrangler, and the wife of a lineman. I have been called by God to be a mother, and I strive to be the best mother I can be. I was born and raised in the South, and I hope to never live anywhere else (except maybe Hawaii or Ireland…). I love the smell of fields burning after harvest season, getting behind a tractor on a state highway, and that everyone here says y’all.
Why “The Zookeeper”? My house is a zoo. Several years ago our family of 6 bought an 1900 sq. ft. Victorian farmhouse (formerly a dogtrot log cabin). –You can read more about that here.– We adored our house. We remodeled the bathroom into a perfect oasis for a tired mama. Then we put it up for sale (*insert horrified face*), and we moved to the foothills of the Ozarks and added 3 more kids. My husband works long hours, our kids need lots of running, and I’m just trying to keep it all sort of together. Big changes have come our way over the last few years (ok, really it’s been one big running bunch of craziness since we got married 🙂 ), and I’m excited to see what else God has in store for us this year!
Here on my blog you will find random thoughts from me, thoughts on what God is teaching me daily, funny things my kids do and say, updates and photos as we make our house our home, and hopefully a helpful tip or review or two.
