I am a Reformed Presbyterian (RPCNA) , homeschooling a la Charlotte Mason mom to four kids. In my copious free time, I enjoy knitting, blogging (duh), and helping manage my daughter’s Etsy business (also see below). At one point pre-kids I was in grad school studying Biblical Hebrew (I was ABD — “all but dissertation”) and so I also try to keep up with that and post on weird things like the book of Jeremiah.
My oldest boy is 15 and is into Legos (still!), classical culture, and recreational math. My 14-year-old girl is the family artist. By age 6 she was better than me at most artsy things. She has her own blog and Etsy shop — please check them out! She also has type 1 diabetes, a life-long chronic, life-threatening illness about which I am sure I will blog a lot. She was diagnosed at age 19 months. My third is another boy. He loves board games of all kinds, especially German-style ones, computer games, annoying his big brother, and eating. Finally, there is the little Beanie. She is 9 and loves her stuffed family. She also has a blog about walruses — read it here. I also have a husband who does things involving economics and computer programming. That is at work. At home he does things involving Velveeta and the History Channel. A black cat (Nebby, short for Nebuchadnezzar and the source of this blog’s name) and a basset hound named Barnabas complete the family. And we all live together somewhere between Boston and Providence.
