I am Joy and I love my life! I am one half of a dynamic duo. As a couple we take on the world and are raising three awesome children. Every day I have the privilege of being teacher, therapist, personal chef, housekeeper, chauffeur, and travel agent. I got my degree in education but never imagined I would use it to homeschool my own children. Growing up I had a soft spot for special education but never thought special needs would be as personally relevant as it is for my daughter Lydia. I love to travel, moving at our own pace, continually learning as we go. Pack my family into the car with a full tank of gas, make a quick stop at the Starbucks drive-thru, give me the open road, and I am a happy woman!
