First and foremost I am a wife and mom to four awesome kids. I have three boys and a girl who keep me busy running all over the place from sports and scouts to everything in between.
After deciding to return to school I started at SCC in the fall of 2008. It was quite an adjustment for me and my family coming back to school after a 15 year hiatus.The kids find it amusing that I have to do homework right along with them. My goal is to show them that if you set your mind to it you can accomplish anything.
My sister-in-law has always been fascinated by manatees. I know it's strange, with us being smack dab in the middle of the country we don't see many manatees around these parts.
Several years ago she started the tradition of going to Florida in the winter to swim with them when they come in from the ocean to gather near the warm springs of Crystal River. When my oldest son was 10 she took him with her. This year it's son #2's turn.
They left today and will be back on monday. I know they will have such a good time snorkeling in the warm water with the sea cows and enjoying the 70+ degree temperatures. For more information you can go to :http://www.homesafe.com/manatee/recommendations.html
