Hi Everyone! It's Therese from The Musings of a Mom. Wednesday is my day, and so it is my turn to introduce myself.
Over on the sidebar, I said that I am passionate about my family and my faith. This is very true. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Andy, for 12 years, and we have 3 beautiful sons, ages 8, 5, and 3. We hope for more children, but we will see what God has in his plans for us. I also come from a large extended family. I am the youngest of 5 children, and between all of us, there are 25 grandchildren. My boys, and my nieces and nephews were my parents' greatest joy while they were alive (I often think they are smiling down on us from heaven, too!).
As far as my faith, I am a practicing Roman Catholic. We belong to a pretty orthodox parish, and absolutely love it! We moved back to our parish where we were married at so our sons could attend school there. So far, we haven't been disappointed.
I have a background in special education (Master's degree, actually). I taught Deaf and Hard of Hearing students before we started our family. I really never thought that I would teach again. Then this great opportunity came along! I found a program teaching remedial reading and math, online. When I was in grad school, had someone told me I would teach online I would never have believed it (particularly because the Internet had barely taken off at that point!). What I love is that I get to stay home with my boys, my hubby comes home for dinner, and I go teach! it really works perfectly for our family!
In my free time, I love to cook and bake. I also have taken up loom knitting which is quickly becoming an addiction! I share progress on these project on my personal blog on Mondays if you want to check it out!
I want to take a moment to re-iterate what Brenda said yesterday about each of us following different paths. The five of us have been friends for what seems like an eternity, and we are as alike AND different as any group of women can be. Hopefully, this place can become one of support.
