After years spent in a retail store and bakery, I’ve finally decided to put family first (know that books still run a very, very close second!). There are four of us in our little household: my dear husband, Jason, our daughter, W, is the world’s most pretentious 6-year old, and our son, S, is a darling 2-year old who only lives to please Mommy. We always thought we’d want three kiddos, but after getting one from each end of the spectrum, we’ve decided (at least for now) to call it quits.
My day primarily revolves around their school schedule and my teaching schedule, so I’m busier than I ever was while I was working. W attends a private school here in Thomasville, one of which Jason calls his alma mater, and S attends an Episcopal Day School (we aren’t Episcopal…). W is a great reader in her Kindergarten class. She adores books and always, always, always has a journal or book in her hand to write down her latest poems, stories or recitations. I teach theatre at a local public high school and teach dance for our ballet conservatory. I’m also the production manager for the ballet company.
We’re a very, very “techie” family. Jason owns and operates an audio/visual design company here in Thomasville. He uses our home as testing grounds for new products, which visitors think is awesome, but I’d like to curse at the door knob that speaks to me and won’t let me in my house on a daily basis. We both work on the tech team for our church (he on sound, me on video direction & back stage managing). Both of our kids know how to correctly hold wireless microphones, how to test mics, and how to run faders up and down on light and sound consoles. Jason has also ordered them both toys from Kickstarter projects to teach them how to write code from a young age (priorities of the First World). The kids are growing so quickly. We can hardly keep up with them…and that’s our primary job! Follow me for regular updates on what’s going on with the kiddos, with Jason, with our jobs and our home.
