Well, this is us. A rare moment where we’re all in the picture together. Usually I’m behind the camera and Nomadic Husband ends up in all the photos with the kids.
We’re a family of 4, well 6, if you count the cats. Who, in fact, if you asked them probably wouldn’t want to be counted as part of the family. Because they’re cats, and they’re fickle.
Nomadic Daughter is almost 4 and loves dance, music, and playing mommy to her animals. Her laughter is infectious and so is her smile. She is so curious, imaginative, and drawn to learning new things. This is an amazing age, and I love seeing her pick up new skills daily. ND will sing almost anything. She’ll take songs she already knows and change the words to fit the situation, her creativity always astounds me.
Nomadic Son is 2 and is my cuddler. He laughs at everything Nomadic Daughter does, and tries to copy whatever she is playing/doing in the moment. He is so affectionate, and loving. NS is also my daredevil. ND wasn’t really like this until recently, but he learned how to climb before he could walk. Right now he loves anything that is motor driven, trains are his favorite but helicopters and planes are close behind.
Nomadic Husband is my partner in crime. He’s my best friend, and I’m not sure what I would do without him. He’s incredibly smart, and can figure out pretty much any problem thrown at him. NH has a sarcastic sense of humor, and is always giving me funny looks in serious moments to make me remember that life isn’t so serious. He enjoys computer games, video games, biking and being outdoors. He’s also why we’re so nomadic. Being a helicopter pilot in the US Navy takes us around the world. We go where he goes. Right now he’s getting his master’s degree, and we couldn’t be more proud. I know he misses flying, but we’re enjoying having him around more now that he’s in school.
Now on to me. I’m the planner/organizer/and conductor of this crazy train. I have a small sewing business (nomadicsewist.wordpress.com) that I work on when I have the time, and I love being outside with my family. I have a passion for biking, and have dreams of one day doing The Great Divide Race. Maybe before I’m 40. 🙂 I’m currently a LLL leader, and finishing my requirements to sit for the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) board next summer. I have a background in geology, and environmental studies.
Nice to meet you!
