My marriage ~ We just celebrated 10 years! I am extremely proud of my hard-working husband and his dedication to our family. I'm proud of our strong marriage and what we've accomplished as a team.
My Kids ~ All four of my kids bring me so much pride and joy, and I delight in being their mama.
My Education/Career Choices ~ I do have an associate's and a bachelor's degree, but please don't tell me it's a shame that I'm not utilizing them. I chose to leave the work force so that I could educate my kids. I am proud of that choice. Also, with this blog, the Schoolhouse Review Crew and other projects I've done as a result of the connections I've made, I am utilizing my education. It might be in a non-traditional way, but it works for my family.
Homeschooling my kids ~ It is hard. It is so very hard sometimes. It also rewarding, and we continue to persevere. You know, becoming a teacher was one of the top career choices I had before entering college. I just didn't realize I would be a lifelong teacher to my own children. :)
Getting Published ~ Being a writer was one of my other career aspirations, so to see my article in a magazine was actually pretty fun.
My Attention to Detail ~ I'm a quiet observer. I see things, I notice small details. I remember everything. I was considered "gifted" in school, but I don't put much weight on labels, and I can probably attribute much of that to my observation and memory skills. I love that I don't need a planner to remember appointments or dates or to record things that happened to me.
Teaching Myself ~ I've taught myself how to cook (My baked goods are nothing to write home about, but I enjoy cooking new meals) and I've taught myself to do other things around the house that would have seemed laughably impossible to my family when I was a teenager. Learning new skills is important, and learning is a lifelong process, so I think it's important for my kids to always see me learning something new, even if I'm just learning something I never learned in school alongside them.
