Hi! Siggi here, Sept 3, 2013, updating this site after a whole school year away. Why the hiatus?
Well, we up and moved to Boston, MetroWest to be more precise but still fairly vague. My parents need more care than I can give them from four hours away, and I wanted a more dynamic and academically energized environment for both myself and my family. Vermont was my home for 20 years, and I adore it, but it was time to move on, and things are going great.
I’ll update our bios below when I have good, *current* photos of us to hand. Suffice it to say that today would have been Buddy’s/E5’s first day of kindergarten, but that he’s already working in several first grade workbooks, and is a Minecraft fiend, just like his sisters. TTFN!
Siggi: Former public school science teacher, current homeschooling mom, lifelong learner. Runs STEM enrichment, mostly for homeschoolers, in Chittenden County, Vermont, where we live. Lifelong artist, scientist, writer, chronic illness manager, and bad housekeeper.
Likes: medieval and textile history, science fiction, astronomy, daydreaming, thoughtful discourse, being friends with her kids.
Favorite color: Brown, but I’m trying to incorporate some bright colours into my wardrobe, now that I’m 40!
d consultant to the e-publishing industry. Lifelong scientist, writer, and procrastinator.
Likes: medieval co
Favorite color: Blue.mbat, computer games, staying up until all hours to get some quiet time so he can write in peace.
Beara: Turned six (April 2012) along with fraternal twin sister, Big D. Gregarious and passionate, Beara has yet to meet someone she doesn’t want to befriend or help. She writes stories (just like her Dad), and is motivated to do the more tedious parts of her core academic subjects by her strong desire to go to Mars.
Loves to dance, writes and directs plays, and memorizes the melodies to pretty much anything she hears. She builds and populates towns full of Playmobile and Lego people, and co-creates incredible stories about their lives and adventures.
Favourite color: yellow! (That dress and blouse are her favourite outfit, even if the strap never does stay up for long!)
