Robin has been homeschooling her own five children for over fifteen years.She has raised 2 of her children from infancy, and was a licensed day-care home provider. During this period of time she was instrumental in bringing CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to her area, using her clerical skills in the position of Acting Executive Director. Not only does she have parenting experience with young children, she is currently a stay-at-home mom and a part-time substitute teacher with 4 teens at home! Two are now adults-living-at-home, and two are in public high school. Besides general parenting, Robin has extensive experience in fostering and adopting. After several years as a foster parent, Robin and her husband adopted three children. A few years later, they went to Russia to bring home two more. Upon moving to the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas, Robin and her family began a homesteading project. She learned to raise chickens, sheep and dogs. After growing extensive gardens and planting an orchard, the produce is canned and added to the food storage pantry to this day. When life with teens became extraordinarily hectic, Robin began putting her canning energy into preparing her own convenience foods. In addition to all of her other activities as a homemaker and mother, she is active in her church, working with Boy Scouts and working as a substitute school teacher. In her spare time, Robin is a full-time college student, and will earn her Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts in December 2012. Robin's hobbies are knitting, crocheting, genealogy and has recently joined the world of amateur photography. She will be sharing a variety of knowledge and experience with Suite101 readers.
