About Little ol' Me

jeannie2Hey y'all!
My name is Jeannie and I'm the owner of this blog.
I am a former public school teacher. I taught grades kinder, 1st, and 2nd. I have a Master's in Education with an emphasis on reading. I am a Master Reading Teacher and a Reading Specialist. However, about 3 years ago, I stopped teaching in the public schools and became a blessed homeschool momma!

My children range between 8 years old and 19 years old. I currently teach 2nd grade through college level. 
I am a Christian and I am conservative. I make no apologies for either. I love my savior, Jesus Christ and do my best to follow him each day. I am perfectly UNperfect in every way. I mess up! You WILL catch me messing up. I'm ok with that. Thank goodness we serve a forgiving God!

My family lives on an 80 acre farm in East Texas. We have cows, horses, chickens, dogs, etc. We adore our animals and they are ridiculously spoiled.We love living our simple country life -- what I call a "kindergarten lifestyle".

I am interested in many of the lost self-sufficient arts of yester-year.... like gardening (or at least we attempt to).  I feed a big ol' family so there's lots of cooking going on 'round here! I also like preserving what we grow and cook by canning. I'm a die-hard Dave Ramsey fan and we are working on our debt snowball still (like I said I have 6 kids)! I seek out deals, coupon, organize..... yes I do it all!

I'd be honored if you'd come along for the ride...let's get going!
