Feature Yourself Friday: Meet Erin

Hi there future friends!  My name is Erin and I'm really excited for this chance to tell you a little about me and my blog, chicken babies.

I am a homeschooling mother of 4, and I have my degree in Elementary Music Education.  I love little children and some may accuse me of never having grown up.  I have a closet full of puppets, a library full of children's books, my favorite show is the Backyardigans, and I dream of going on tour with the Wiggles.  Seriously.  That would be so awesome.

My husband and I have 4 amazingly perfect, polite, intelligent, well-behaved children who would never throw shoes or lick the table.   We call them our chicken babies.  Why?  Well, that's a long story, but it has to do with my husband's thinking chickens are funny and the Cosby Show. You can read more details by clicking here, if you're interested.

On the blog I have a mix of posts.  Often I post about what we are doing currently in our homeschool.  To help the kids stay excited about learning, I try to think of fun activities we can do together that teach and engage, such as using bubble wrap to help make flashcards more fun.  I also come up with ways to motivate them to do good work, such as playing 9 innings of school.

I also like to post about our family traditions, like having sock wars or sending out unique christmas cards.

I post about some of our favorite books, and the activities we do with them. I love children's books!

I am not a great cook, but I'm pretty good at baking things that are not healthy for you and I love to share the recipes.

I also post about the funny things my kids do that make me laugh.  They might make you chuckle as well.

The posts which are most viewed on my site are from the birthday parties I have thrown.  I love planning fun games for my kids' parties!  I don't do a lot in the way of decorations, but we have a lot of fun when the party guests come to play!  This Super Spy Training Birthday Party is definitely the most viewed link on my blog.

My favorite part about blogging is hearing back from someone who has used an idea I have shared and has had fun with their family using it.  That makes me so happy.  So, if you stop by my blog and like something you see, please leave a comment and let me know!  It seriously makes my day.  Thanks for reading and hope to see you over at chicken babies!
