Welcome to the party! Thanks for stopping by Beautiful Feet. Allow me to introduce myself, and then feel free to click around the room at your leisure. I've uploaded some of my favorite desserts over here. Sugar and calorie-free, of course. I love virtual desserts!
That's not me. That's my oldest daughter, Sarah.
Coffee and tea are over there.
Drinks are being served in my favorite, environmentally-friendly coffee mugs (most importantly, they don't shatter when dropped on cement floors!)
Here's a quick look at who I am:
My husband, Doug, and I moved (with our family, of course) from the Pacific Northwest to sunny Sinaloa, Mexico, a little over 3 years ago. We are missionaries working with a Calvary Chapel church in Boca del Rio, which is a small fishing village about a half-mile up the coast from our home. Doug is the youth leader and I...well, I do whatever it is that needs to be done at the time. Sometimes I'm the kitchen crew chief or the pianist or the photographer.
Sometimes I'm the local vet. I've led Bible studies and been the chauffeur for women's retreats. I was even Mama Clown once.
We have homeschooled our kids for almost 16 years. I started out a bit eclectic but pretty structured in my teaching strategies, and I've relaxed some over the years! ;^) You'll see some of our curriculum choices on the right sidebar. Also in the tag cloud (top of the page) you'll see all the lables for the posts at this blog. Click and read to your heart's content.
I participate weekly in Blogger Friend School. It's a great way to force myself to blog regularly and to push me outside of my comfort zone a bit.
I'm just beginning to host the weekly meme "Fun Fact Friday" over at our family blog. It's only been up and running for a couple of weeks, so it's a pretty new thing. I'm hoping it will be a fun thing -- my kids have been looking forward to it, since there aren't a whole lot of kid-appropriate memes out there!
I blog on not-quite-dinosaur-speed dial-up, so you'll never find YouTube videos here, but I enjoy creating little animated gif thingies and playing with Paint.net. I'm finding that the longer I blog, the more fun it becomes...except, of course, when the computer is being difficult, but that's part of the challenge!
Here's our house (it's a work in progress)...
Here's my view (it's really hard to choose a favorite -- we get 365 great sunsets a year)...
Here's our beach, which is about 2 blocks from our house. This photo was taken in December. To us, it's too cold to swim in the ocean in December, but our friends from Oregon thought the 80 degree weather was perfect for bodysurfing and sandcastles...
And that's probably enough info for one post! Be sure you leave a comment so I can come visit your party, too! And again, thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you here again soon!
Dios te bendiga!
