Bio

This is the bio that's been here for years:

Reading, reading, reading

Central Asia, Middle East, Islam

Arabic, Russian, Farsi

Travel, food, cooking

Quiet, quiet, quiet

Mormon, homeschooler, 3 boys

Geysers, mountains, ocean

Spinning, quilting, crocheting


But I think it's time for a more traditional version.  I'm a global nomad who has lived twice in Palestine, twice in Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, and the US in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, Washington, Idaho, and Utah.  If all goes well, there will be many more countries to come.

Since I also have three children, I homeschool to save our sanity through all these moves (20 so far). We have one in high school, one in middle school, and one in elementary school.

I clean my own bathrooms, have lived in a house with no plumbing, shop locally but cook globally, read constantly, speak many languages badly, and love learning how to live in a new country, no matter what type of expats we are.
