My name is Christina Turner but I have always been Tina to my friends and family. Since my second marriage, however, that makes me “Tina Turner”! I have been torn between avoiding it like the plague and just going with it 🙂
I am a homeschool mom to my 13 year old daughter, Madison, and my 14 year old step-son, Marco. We have been homeschoolers for the past 5 years. I am a passionate believer in homeschooling so don’t be surprised if my blogs push the choice just a little 🙂
I am also passionate about homesteading, including growing our own vegetables, keeping hens for eggs and raising our own meat. A combination of my kids’ interest in animals and assorted negative experiences over the years with mainstream medicine have turned me into somewhat of a “natural mama”. We do organic everything, farm, use natural remedies and herbal medicines and spend most of our time outdoors tending our flocks, riding our horse and also sailing.
We actually live on our boat in the Bahamas right now – a 72ft wooden schooner named Keewatin. Living on a boat is sometimes exactly as romantic as it sounds. Right now, however, I am expecting a baby in a couple of months and the romance aspect is wearing off! More on that later.
I have blogged about homeschooling my kids for years and hope I can be helpful – or even just entertaining 😉 – here.
