Welcome to the Family Blog

Who we are:
A family of nine, homeschoolers, ravenous readers, computer junkies, news addicts and more.

Where we live: in a 1200 square foot house with one bathroom in the country- cornfields as far as the eye can see in front of us, creek and woods behind us.

Further information, compiled by the members of the Common Room:

We are a boisterous family
::editress: No, we are not::

They love to hold heated and loud conversations.
::editress:No, we do not!!!!!!!!!!.::

This should not be taken as poor familial relations but rather as the Irish side ‘coming out.’

Notes on individual family members to be shared in subsequent posts.

First Lady says the GOP is a threat to first amendment freedoms such as free speech.

Meanwhile, under her husband’s administration, the FCC is implementing rules which will have a chilling effect on if not outright curbing of free speech.
