About Me

Hi, I’m so glad you stopped by! Let me introduce myself.

I’m Rebekah, and I’m the mother in a large family. I actually had to poll my friends on Facebook to accept the fact that five children (yes, five!) makes for a large family. When you’re in the family, however, it just doesn’t seem so large. But I’m just like every other mom, in that I want to be the BEST mom there is for my children, while not losing myself in the mix.

But let me tell you about my family. I’ve been married for 13 years. In those 13 years, we’ve lived in Florida (3 different cities), Mississippi, and Georgia. We have an 11 year old boy, a 9 year old girl, an 8 year old boy and two almost-3 year old twin girls.  Honestly, we were going for four children…Bonus!

We’ve moved around a lot due to my husband’s job, but I think we’re settled now in Florida, the same city I was born and raised in. I school my children at home, although we don’t traditionally homeschool; we use Florida Virtual School, where the big kids have online teachers, physical textbooks, and I’m basically the facilitator. I like it because I still have control over how my children learn, yet I have almost zero percent of the planning or cost. In the past, we’ve done the traditional homeschooling and the public school, and (at this point) have settled on FLVS.

As far as the ME portion…I love to cook when I have all the ingredients and a recipe to follow, I love to DIY when I have all the supplies and instructions, and I enjoy looking at things on Pinterest that I love but could never make. Notice a pattern? Yes, I like to control my surroundings and outcomes as much as possible! This can be both a good and bad thing, I’ve learned over the years.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know, please feel free to send me an email, I love to hear from my readers!
