About Karen

So you want to know more about me? I live in Sierra Vista, Arizona, with my husband & one cat. I am a transplanted Yankee (originally from the Finger Lakes area of NYS) who spent twelve years in north Alabama, lived two and a half years in Tallahassee, Florida, and then moved to Arizona in October of 2009. Who knows how long we’ll be here as we follow the job market!

My family has enjoyed the freedom of home education since 1996. We began with quite a structured learning format, but quickly discovered that unschooling fit our learning styles better. We’ve transitioned from elementary level to high school to college, graduated three children in the process and sending two of them to college. While I may no longer be an active homeschooling mom, I am a homeschooling grandmother, as our daughter is homeschooling our eldest granddaughter in Tallahassee and I fully expect our youngest granddaughter (by our youngest child) to be homeschooled in Alabama.

I maintain LeapingFromTheBox.com, a homeschooling / unschooling website. In addition, I have a personal blog – Musings, Mischief and Mayhem. I also love to crochet, garden, travel, read, write, practice photography, and I am beginning to make jewelry, both beaded and crocheted. I might even have to learn to tat, as I have seen some gorgeous tatted jewelry!

Join me as I continue to keep current with homeschooling issues and explore life as an empty-nester!
