Well, I finally made it on here after some technical difficulty. Yippee! It's nice to meet everyone. I'm WebMommy, married to Noysboy, and we have two girls, DanceFairy (5) and GuineaGirl(3). We live in Fairborn, Ohio which is pretty close to Dayton. We just had a big blizzard here so we are all enjoying the snow and also the forced confinement at home for a few days. I'm almost sad for the week to start up again.
I'm a computer programmer from home, and I also work a bit at my girls' school just a few hours a week. I'm also a full time college student and somehow manage to keep the kiddos home with me as well. It's a busy life but worth it.
My girls are great little folks. DanceFairy is a voracious reader and would enjoy any type of chapter books such as the Boxcar Children (after #5 please), Invisible Stanley or The Tiara Club (we have 1-3 already). She's also seriously into chemistry and science experiments, loves dress up, and enjoys ballet.
GuineaGirl is my animal lover. She builds pillow and blanket cages for all of her stuffed beasties and loves to romp with our very real guinea pigs and one old dog. She's a great swimmer and loves to be in the water until she turns blue (no bath toys please, we have a MILLION!!!). She's also a pretty fantastic artist and enjoys drawing and painting.
They both love ice and roller skating and you can't keep them off their scooters in the spring. They are both also interested in Spanish so anything along those lines would be really cool.
If there are any homeschooling families out there, DanceFairy will be home next year for the first time (while GuineaGirl goes off to preschool - I know, weird, eh?) so I'd love to hear your experiences with that, favorite "must have" items and that sort of thing.
All the best,
