Hello! I am Kelly Wymer, and this is my blog. I decided to do this blog on a whim, like I do so many things in my life. It drives my poor hubby crazy, but I think it makes life fun! I grew up with a wonderful mom and terrific dad, and I have a younger sister and brother I love very much. My brother married an awesome girl, and they have a little girl and a son, both the same age as my kids. It is a blast when we get the two families together! My sister married an incredible man who is quite a bit older than she is. When it comes to family, I am the luckiest girl around. Even my grandparents, aunts, and uncles are amazing! I can honestly say that every member of my family has influenced me positively. I actually like my entire family! :)
Growing up, I moved around a bit. I was born outside of Chicago, moved to and from St. Louis and Kansas City twice each, and then, when I was 10 years old, I moved to New Jersey. I graduated high school there and then went to college at SUNY Cortland in upstate New York where I studied to become a science teacher. As soon as I graduated, I moved back to the midwest and started teaching. I was a science teacher for 15 years at a public school, private school, and online school. I was still teaching outside the home when I had my first two boys, so I had to do the daycare thing. While my daycare provider was awesome, I ached to be home with the kiddos. When I finally had my third son, we decided it would work if I taught from home instead of in a brick and mortar school, so I did. As times changed, so did online education, and it got harder and harder to keep up. I eventually had to leave online education, and education altogether. While I loved teaching, my kids and my family was always more important, and as the family grew, my time for teaching shrunk. I now stay home with my husband, four kids, and two wolf dogs here in Kansas. I have decided to blog because I always have so much to say about the kids, dogs, and our lives. I also love to write. I would like to someday bring in some income from my site to justify the time and energy spent on it, so you may see some ads or links or even a blogroll that includes these money-making opportunities. Hey, why not, right? Who couldn’t use a few extra bucks when raising four kids?
I hope you enjoy our experiences and adventures as much as we do! Feel free to comment as often as you wish. I look forward to getting to know you as well!
