A little about my family:
My husband, Mark teaches analytical chemistry at Hillsdale College. I have a daughter who is a third grade teacher at Williamston Schools in Williamston, MI. I also have a daughter who is a nurse along with a son-in-law who is an arborist. I get to spend time with my 2 granddaughters and grandson. One of my favorite activities to do with my grandchildren is to share books with them and listen to them read their favorite books to me.
A little about me:
I started kayaking the lakes and rivers of Michigan with my husband. We also love to ride our 21 speed bikes on the old railroad bike trails in the Midwest. When I have free time, I like to read historical fiction books, bake bread and cookies, and make meals for my family and friends. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and when they are not in Hillsdale, you can often catch me Zooming and reading my favorite children's books to them.
