I’m Mama Hoot - Christian, wife, mother, veteran, educator, knitter, crafter, cyclist - the list could go on. I grew up a country girl in Ozarks of southwest Missouri.  Since those days, I've been all over the U.S. and beyond. We recently moved to the Austin area and are embracing life as Texans.  I draw daily upon my country roots and sometimes long for the days on the dirt road.

My children and I are exploring and learning through homeschool.  We started with preschool and have just embarked upon our journey through elementary school.

I love to create.  It never ceases to amaze me how various pieces come together to become a beautiful (or tasty) whole.  And I love the practicality of cooking, baking, sewing and knitting. When I invest my time I have a tangible (or edible) product to hold in my hands and enjoy.  

Welcome to our nest - where life is a HOOT!
