Why are you so crazy about being at home?
Because it takes us 45 minutes just to leave the house. We can spend a lot of time (and fuel) driving to places, when we could often have just as much fun and learn just as much at home. We love to worship together as a family, homeschool our children, cook, build and make all sorts of stuff from scratch, and grow our own food.
Where do you live?
In a warm, southerly corner of Blighty. It’s a part of England called Somerset, where (I am fond of saying), “Summer Never Sets”. (Unfortunately, it actually does.)
Why don’t you send your children to school?
For the lie-ins. Just kidding. There are so many reasons that we home educate. Here’s a few of them.
Do you have a job?
I am one of those women who is blessed to be able to choose to stay at home to care for her kids. I have enjoyed teaching piano and setting up WordPress websites for a few people. Mr Baker is a superb language teacher, of groups and individuals. He teaches nearly half a dozen languages! He loves it so much he often tries to do it for nothing, but I insist he must charge something.
Are you going to have any more children?
Hopefully. At our wedding we were advised that, just because we’re Bakers, not to try for a dozen. At this stage, admittedly, that does look unlikely, but we are delighted that no. 5 is well on the way.
Why do you keep changing the layout of your blog?
Because one of the lessons I never learned in Art class, after a piece was finished, was to walk away.
Why do you use Italics so much?
I don’t use them that much.
Why do you make so many jokes?
“A merry heart does good, like medicine,” goes Proverbs 17:22. Laughter is a gift from God. Let’s enjoy it. (And also, my father wants some credit, so Thanks Dad!).
Why do you keep quoting from the Bible?
Because it’s beautiful, classic literature. Because it’s full of wisdom. But, most of all, because it speaks of Jesus, who not only saved my life in a car crash nearly 15 years ago, but has promised the kind of home anyone would be crazy about.
