Now that the blog is officially up and running, it's probably about time to introduce our bloggers!

Without further ado, here we go:

Rachel Payne
My name is Rachel. I’ve been married since May 2003. Before my children were born I taught math, but now I’m a full-time wife and mother. Olivia is 4 years old and Jesse is 6 months. I’ve had an unsatisfactory hospital birth and a wonderful home birth. Since I have more interests and hobbies than time to pursue them, I’m a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. In addition, taking care of my children has somewhat curtailed my involvement. I like to cook, garden (organically, of course), read, play mandolin and guitar (at least try!), sew, hunt, and play 42.

I'm hoping she'll share with us what 42 is ~ I've never even heard of it! A card game??

Alex Smith
My name is Alexandra Smith, but feel free to call me Alex. I'm a lucky mom to 3 monkeys disguised as children and wife to a lucky man! My children are currently 4 years, 2 years, and 5 months. I love to read any book and recently got sucked into the vortex of the Twilight series that all of the teenage girls are going gaga over. I'm passionate about unmedicated births, breastfeeding, and a holistic approach to life. The best advice that I ever heard? Take a deep breath and laugh because it's just not worth the energy to get mad. That has become my daily philosophy though somedays I have to remind myself of it more often than others!

I'm right there with you some days, Alex! I think it's no coincidence that family refers to my children as monkeys as well ;) *love*

Katherine Clay (That's me! =D)
I'm a single work-at-home mom to four wonderful unschooled children: Rickey - 9, Callie - 7, Isabelle - 2 and Sebastian - 9 months. (All ages current to today's date, of course ~ you know how fast they grow!!) I am the owner of Crunchy Bunch, and an independent rep for EclipseSpa. (If anyone's interested in becoming an indie rep for the best ever organic bath and body products, let me know!) [/shameless plugs ;)]
I love all things yarn (spinning, crocheting, knitting, it's all fantastic!), camping, hiking, walking, waterfalls, road trips, horseback riding, playgrounds, swimming, games, puzzles, singing songs, arts and crafts, being silly, learning, creativity, asking questions, connecting, making (and eating!) raw foods and much much more! I also have a huge soft spot for babywearing :) You'll find throughout my posts, that I am also quite fond of exclamation points!! and smiles =D
Most especially and above all, I love being and sharing with my children <3

Hope that gives you a good idea of who we are and what we're all about. Have a question for us? Ask! A comment? Post! We love to chat, and you just might give us a great idea for a new post, featuring You!

  1. 42 is to dominoes what Spades is to cards, but 42 has considerable more depth and variation.
