Welcome! I am Sarah, the Mama on the other side of the computer. I am happy you are visiting How Wee Learn because I hope that means you like it here. So do I.
I think of myself as a natural living Mama and teacher. I teach very part time in the classroom and spend the rest of my time home with my little ones dabbling. They mostly dabble in play – and well, I suppose I do too.
Here I share ideas for teachers in the classroom, preschool teachers, and Mamas home with little ones. And sometimes I will throw in some recipes or pictures of my chickens. You know, normal life stuff.
If you are new, here are a few things that are helpful for you to know:
We are relatively new to country living, having been on our farm for just a year. We keep chickens … but not “chickens” … we have Judy, Chloe, Blackie, Pebbles, Henrietta, Henny Penny, Stacy, Baby Hen and Christopher. And we make them winter hats sometimes.
If you think it is funny that I introduced my chickens before I introduced my kids it’s just because you are new here.
My kids are named as well (heehee). Madeline is 12 and is the most thoughtful child I have ever met. She makes me look like an amazing Mama.
Sammy is 5 and my little wild child. He makes me look at the world in a whole new way. He also makes me sleep really well at night.
Benjamin is 2 and is my free spirited child. He makes me look for a term other than wild child, since that title is already taken. He is going places, that boy – all the time, always.
My children are incredible people. I’m sure yours are too. We are lucky Mamas.
I am married to John Wayne. Truly. He is an amazing person and puts up with our crazy like a champion. He is only a cowboy after work hours, by day he is a Psychologist. We give him lots of real-life work experience.
We are trying our hand at making and growing our own these days as much as we can. Embracing the country lifestyle to the fullest. We are also trying to slow down and live simply. I find it funny how hard it can be to live simply. We are sticking with it though. One day at a time.
Whether you are here to get ideas for keeping your little ones busy, finding learning ideas, searching for a rhythm for your family, wondering about Quiet Bins, or needing some Mama support – I am glad you are here.
The best way to get in touch with me is to leave a comment on a post. I read those every night. You can also send me an email at HowWeeLearn@gmail.com.
Thanks for visiting – I appreciate you being here.
