Moms That Blog (The Interviews)

*Please note: I took a little break from doing these.  Since school started I haven't had alot of time to put these together, but now that we have gotten into a routine of sorts, I'll be starting them back up.

Introducing......Leah - She's a mother of six and a stay at home mom.  She also homeschools her children.  She has some really great crafts and projects posted on her blog.  She makes homeschooling look like a lot of fun and that's what makes her a great Mom That Blogs!

Tell us a bit about yourself.......I'm a stay at home/homeschool mother of six, living in a small town in Montana. We've lived in Montana for around six years, and before that we were in western Oregon.  I love children and learning, and am inspired by things that bring the two together. 

When did you first start blogging.......I started blogging just over a year ago, after spending a number of years reading, and enjoying blogs, without ever knowing what they were.

What is your blog about.......Almost Unschoolers is a blend of crafts, science projects, reading recommendations, and recipes, along with occasional thoughts about homeschooling, and life in general.

Why do you blog.........I started out blogging, to find out more about the process, and to stretch myself, with a daily writing exercise - something to keep my mind from turning to mush. But, as I've gotten into the swing of things, I've really come to appreciate the open exchange of information, and friendship I've found in the blogging world.

Must read blogs that you visit daily.........I participate in several weekly link-ups, hosted on blogs, that I read regularly, and draw quite a bit of inspiration from. There's "Math Monday" at Joyful Learner, a "History and Geography" link-up at Children Grow, Children Learn, Children Explore, the "stART", story + ART, link-up at A Mommy's Adventures, "What My Child is Reading" at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns, and "Science Sunday" at Adventures in Mommydom. I also occasionally join in the "Friday Field Trip", and "Wordless Wednesday" link-ups, at Live the Adventure, and 5 Minutes for Mom. That sounds like a lot of linking, I know, but I really enjoy seeing all the creative projects, and reading suggestions, that everyone brings each week. And, I've made some great friends, at these link-ups, and blog hops, too.

Anything else you'd like to add........I hope you'll stop by Almost Unschoolers from time to time, and join us in some of the fun, craziness, and learning, that I'm privileged to share, each day.  It's great to be a homeschooler.
