My name is Heidi Tonseth and I am a homeschooling mom of eight. I currently have three official students, two graduated and three still preschool age. My hubby can fix most anything and keeps this little farm running when he’s not working his day job. I love music and have my BA in Music with an emphasis on Music Ed. I especially enjoy leading and being involved in worship. We live in a wonderful little farming community, where we get to live live, work and be part of the community along with others in our church.
Our family has spent many years scraping along on one income, so I could stay home with the kids. This has required some creativity in making do, eating simply and often just plain going without. It has required me to learn to garden, cook from scratch and hone my sewing skills.
Some of my favorite activities I enjoy and help me keep my sanity are weaving, crochet, reading. My biggest destressor and refocus avenue is playing the piano (without interruptions).
