I was born in Argentina and moved to the United States when I was ten years old. I grew up in a Christian home and my parents taught me how to love God, and when I was a teenager He captured my heart and loving Him became my life. I met my husband when I was a Senior in high school, and I finished college in three years so that I could marry him! It was worth it- he is so much more than I deserve. We lived in Chicago for five years and now we are back in Texas. We had four kids in 5.5 years- my youngest is now two, so we are entering the kid years… I’ve spent the last eight years pregnant or nursing my babies and now I am trying to learn to live life without a chubby baby on my hip!
We love our extended family- they help raise our kids!
We love our church- they are our family also.
We live in a cul-de-sac with our friends- our kids share backyards and bicycles.
We are part of a Classical, University-Model school- our kids are in class two days a week and I teach them at home three days.
We grow a garden every year- it’s never as good as I dream.
I love to sew, cook, read and run. I love all things creative and homemade.
Strangers frequently ask me if the kids are all mine. I guess it’s unusual… They are my bumper crop, and I am grateful that the harvest is eternal.
