I am a boy mom!

The M.O.B. Society is hosting the first annual Boy Mom BlogHop. Since I am the mom of three boys I thought I would join in the fun. If you are visiting from the BMBH, welcome!

Mothers of Boys

Hello to all the visitors from the BMBH! I am so happy that you are here. I am Erica. My amazing husband is Chris. We started dating in high school twenty years ago. He still makes me laugh as much as he did when we were teenagers. You can read ten facts about me and my better half here. 

We are a Catholic homeschooling family. Our faith is the most important thing in our lives. We start and end our day with prayer, and it is with God's grace that we are able to accomplish the things we do every day. We did not start out as homeschoolers. You can find our story here. 

About me, I love to spend my time with my family and friends. I also enjoy reading, walking, gardening, and knitting.

About the boys, they are such a blessing. Holden is the oldest. He turned fifteen in June. He enjoys reading, basketball, and video games. He loves to read anything written by Rick Riordan and the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan. He also enjoys detective fiction like Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown, and the Hardy Boys. Next in line is our eight year old Thomas. His birthday is also in June. He loves Legos, soccer, and video games. He is not as enthusiastic a reader as his older brother, but he does enjoy the Magic Tree House series, and he loves books by Tomie DePaola. Ralph is our youngest. He turned three this month. He loves to play in the sand, color, and watch older shows that his brothers used to watch like Barney and the Power Rangers. His favorite books are board books. He frequently wants me to read books about Thomas the Train, Winnie the Pooh, and children's bible stories.

Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!
