Blog #1~For lack of a better name.

Well here we very first post as a new blogger. How exciting! I will try to entertain as well as inform in the future, but for now I think I will just try to get the hang of writing a blog.

I should start by introducing myself. Rik, or simply the Queen of Chaos, since chance changes at any given point in my day are inevitable, yet normally prove to be educational on some level.

I am a wife, mom of 6, 1 of which is married with a beautiful daughter of her own, 3 of which I'm proud to say are college students, and the youngest 2 bare with me through our homeschooling adventure.
The extra additions to our household include 2 dogs and 3 cats which add to the truth in the statement, "Never a dull moment".

My passions are my family, photography, traveling, camping, reading (whenever I have the time to read a big-girl book), and cooking (especially when someone else cleans up).

As far as our home school methods are concerned, we lean toward the Classical Education method with room for diversity mixed in.

Let this new chapter in my journey begin......


  1. We also have a zoo over here- 1 rabbit, 1 fish, 1 snake, 2 dogs, and 3 tortoises (my 18yo dd would add 3 smelly boys ;)). Sometimes I just shake my head and wonder "why?!", but mostly I am okay with it.

    It is nice to meet you (so to speak).

  2. It's nice to meet you too :)
