Hello and welcome!

My name is Elsie. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Bob, for 18 years, and we co-author this blog together. I write, and Bob is the editor and blog technician. I have a BA degree from Western Washington University in Early Childhood Education. We have been homeschooling our 6 children for 13 years. I love to organize, I enjoy singing, scrapbooking online, homeschooling, camp fires on the beach, boating on Puget Sound, tennis, taking walks, spending quality time with family, and coffee with dear friends. I’m very practical, and very black-and-white in most things. I enjoy the simple. I love my slippers. I like to eat Pop Rocks candy and laugh with the kids. I love to laugh and cry in the same movie. And I aspire to bring hope, vision, and encouragement to you… Nice to meet you. *smile* ~
