I’m assuming the first post here should be the obligatory introductory post.

My name is Annette. I’m 34, and have 3 children: Michael, who is almost 8, Katie Grace, who is five-and-a-half, and Nicholas, who is three. We are expecting a new baby around Easter, and are planning a homebirth.

I grew up in Lancaster, PA and went to Grove City College, where I met my husband. We were both music education majors in college. I went on to do graduate work in early childhood education, and he went on to get his M. Div. He is a pastor, and we’re still in Pennsylvania. I am a stay-at-home mom and also write Waldorf-inspired early childhood “curriculum” (for lack of a better word) called “Seasons of Joy”.
