Hi, my name is Ruth and in my normal life I am a single mom, a widow, a full-time music teacher and homemaker among other things. This blog is going to chronicle my life as I get off the ride, as I take a year sabbatical. Most people do this kind of thing when their kids are babies. My kids are high schoolers. Together we’re getting off the ride, homeschooling, freeing ourselves up for one year from all of our normal routines and schedules. Curious to see what happens as we approach the 2013-2014 school year.
