Ultimate Blog Party Intro

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Hi, I'm Amber.  Welcome to The Mommy Earth!

I'm joining the Ultimate Blog Party for the first time today, on the very last day -- even though I found out about it on the first day.  I'm not a procrastinator at all.  Right.

This is me with my family recently on a visit with my grandma.

Below is a better photo, where we're all actually looking toward the camera at once, but it's not as recent.  It was taken by a friend last summer when we visited Indiana for a church meeting.

I'm really not very good at introductions, and I'm a little short on time today too.  I'm sure you can't imagine why after seeing my family. ;)   

If you want to know more about me, you can go to a couple places where I've done some semblance of an introduction before, like my About tab (which really needs updating -- our children are now ages 11 and under, for instance, and we're expecting a sixth child), or here.  

Or you could look at some of the things I write about or link to occasionally, which include things like Homeschooling, God's creation/nature, Recipes (sometimes), Family-Related stuff (especially Large Families, and posts about my own), Books... Or you could see some of my most popular posts from last year.

I'll also just mention here (it's kind of in a category by itself) that my brother, Clint, died tragically in a freak car accident last summer, and sometimes I write things related to that, too.  I'm still dealing with losing him.  I have no way of knowing how much more I'll write about this, but that's part of who I am now too, and if you've lost someone close to you, I can relate.

Thanks for stopping by, and have fun looking around!  Leave me a comment if you like, so I can meet you, too.  :)
