I’m Mandy. During the day, I’m a wife and homeschool mom of 3. At night, I’m still a wife and homeschool mom of 3. For me, family life is life, and not just part of it. That doesn’t mean I don’t miss the intellectual opportunities that came so easily before kids – time to read, keep up with the news, travel. I try to be creative in finding ways to keep learning new things and stretching my brain while still enjoying the minutiae of the beautiful life I’ve been given.
The title, “All Astonishment” doesn’t hold any super-special meaning. It’s a phrase from Pride and Prejudice that has always stuck in my mind. Surely just the fact that I like it, and that it’s from a respectable piece of literature, and that it’s alliterative – surely those are reasons enough to make it a good title.
