I am a homeschooling mom of 8, living in the country, striving toward Godliness and simplicity.  Gardening and animal husbandry are my challenges as I pursue the goal of raising the greater part of the food our family consumes.  Laughter is my weapon of choice as I confront these challenges with my army of 8 at my side.  I am married to a strong, long-suffering railroad man who is able to rescue me from myself on a regular basis!  Why Dandelions you ask??  Let’s just say that I’m no “hothouse” rose!  I prefer the bloom-where-you-are-planted-in-the-face-of-all-odds persistence of the smiley and humble “Dannyfowler”.
