About Krystal

Our family, three boys and a girl. Outnumbered, that’s me. But I love it. I’m Krystal. The Mom. The Wife. The Writer. The Reader. The Athlete/Sports Enthusiast. The Chef. The Party Planner. The Talker. The Seamstress. The Record Keeper. The Daydreamer. I have lots of shoes that I fill, but recently I’ve decided to try on a new pair and become The Educator.

Aaron also wears a lot of different shoes. Besides being a loving husband and a wonderful father, he is a student, working on a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. He works part time on campus doing research for a professor. While juggling those things, he and I are also the resident managers of our apartment complex. When he finds time for hobbies, he enjoys being a web developer, building things out of wood, hiking, biking, camping, being outside, and problem solving.

Mad Scientist, our two year old, has only two pairs of shoes, the Sweet Toddler pair, and the Terrible Toddler pair. He can change back and forth between them as fast as a lightning strike. We call him Scientist because he is a very hands on learner, and tacked Mad on the front because he has no inhibitions, yet. He likes to wear socks on his hands, sleep with anything from my kitchen drawer, and make funny faces for the camera. He likes to know how things work, and tests out everything to find its purpose. Scientist is in the experiment and explore stage; link that with his already curious personality, and he’s double the trouble. Scientist is a laid back, easy going, busy kid who keeps us laughing and on our toes all the time.

Sponge, that’s the little guy in the front. He’s a year old. We’re still waiting to see what kind of shoes he’ll grow up to wear. Right now he’s just soaking everything in. Sponge is learning to walk, cutting teeth, and getting into anything within his reach. He’s a happy baby, but not as laid back as his older brother. Sponge has the most incredible blue eyes and his smile makes his whole face light up. Sponge would be completely content to follow Scientist around all day trying to join him at his antics.

As a family we are just starting to get our feet wet in the homeschooling atmosphere. We have lots to learn and I’m sure it will be a trial and error process, but we’re excited at the possibilities spread out before us.
