Hi! I'm Jessica. Wife of a bearded veteran & Momma to a bunch of kids. No really, there's 5 of them. Their ages range from 12 to 3. I'm a stay at home mom who also happens to homeschool my kiddos. We live in North Carolina (Mid-Eastern USA). Midway between the Appalachian mountains & the Atlantic Ocean.
My husband was in the US Army. He is medically retired & drives an 18-wheeler now.
We are a homeschooling family & so anything learning focused is alway welcome. As are any items age appropriate or items related to the themes listed below.
Seth (12) He's into Minecraft, PS4, using his metal detector outside, & the color combo of red & black.
Emma (10) She's a girly girl. Loves singing, dancing, writing, & drawing.
Charleigh (8) She's a stubborn little girl who isn't afraid to say whatever she's thinking. Loves drawing, stickers, writing, & watching anime.
Zach (5) He is non-stop from wake-up to bedtime. Obsessed with dinosaurs & anything with wheels.
Frankie (3) This guy is one of the smartest little guys I've ever met (I may be a little partial though. hehe). He loves superheros & villians just the same. His faves are Hulk & Venom. Construction vehicles are also a win with this one.
International candies & savory treats are always welcome for us to try. Especially chocolates & gummies.
