Hi, I’m Jessica – a hippie wanna-be with a touch of an inner Monica.

I’ve been married for 16 years (since I was seventeen) to this guy I really like.  We have four hilarious children, one girl and three boys. I have almost exclusively attended the University of Motherhood with a major in Procrastination.  I’m hoping to continue in this field with a Masters in Baby-Weight loss.

We’ve been a fairly nomadic family, calling Georgia, Arizona, Germany, California, Maryland, Georgia again, Canada, Georgia again, and India home. Some how in all that we’ve managed to move 16 times in 16 years. And we’re keeping the nomadic lifestyle up with our current adventures in South Asia.




Oh, and I wrote this Parenting book that I’m pretty proud of called :


Parenting Wild Things – Embracing the Rumpus


It’s the book I wish someone had handed me before I started screwing up my kids.



A bit about this site:


Oh, it’s mostly just the ramblings of a Traveling, Christian, Blogging, homeschooling, Mother of Four, trying to embrace the Rumpus.  Likely to talk about travel, food, parenting, and that funny thing I saw on Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that we can make you laugh.
