I guess when one gives up Facebook for Lent, one ends up blogging...maybe that is the new Murphy's Law or something...anyway...this is more fun.

To formally introduce myself, I am Jessica. I have a gorgeous and brilliant husband, (seriously, no sarcasm) an 8 year old daughter that just kills me she is so much fun, a 7 year old son that has a heart of gold, and can crack up even the biggest grumps, and 2 Weimaraner dogs.
I get to homeschool our kids. This is our second official year. I also work at a local technical college.
I named this blog "Learning Out Loud" because it seems nothing in our house is done quietly. I think our whole family likes to live out loud in general. I frequently tell the kids to find their internal volume and to turn it down just a couple of notches. It's not that they are running around yelling at each other, it's just that, as Sophia often says, they have "strong projection".
I also picked the title because learning is such a focal point in our family's life. My husband is a teacher, I am a teacher, our kids are living sponges...but because this is "my blog", it is about how I am continuously learning.. My children teach me so much. My parents still teach me. My husband and our marriage is a lesson in love and partnership. And hey, learning how to cook in the public eye is definitely out loud!
So there we have it. On to the next adventure!
