Välkommen to my bloggy Viking hus!! Have a seat, nibble on a piece of Swedish rye, take a bite of this delicious risgrynsgröt (rice pudding) and sip a mug of egg coffee.
My name is Beth and I am a recently-turned-40 (as in yesterday) year old SAHM to my two little pillagers, Flicka (Swedish for "little girl") and Pojke ("little boy"). My dotter will be 4 on Sunday and my boy is 2. DaHubby is a Yooper - someone from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - and a third generation Swede. And, I'm a "troll" - someone from "under the bridge" in the Lower Peninsula - having grown up in the Detroit area. (Update to add: we use pseudonyms around here for internet/family safety so as crazy as I've gotten with the Swede-theme...my kids names are not Flicka and Pojke! LOL Although, those "in the know" will tell you that there ARE definitely Swedish influenced!)
I am a secondary English teacher by training but haven't worked full time in 7 years as I spend these most important years at home with my babies. We're giving homeschooling a try for the first time this year at the preschool level.
Finally, I'm a Christian, a proud daughter of the King. I'm a denominational "mutt": raised Catholic, a campus ministry Lutheran, and now the wife of a son of a Pentecostal preacher! LOL But, building my relationship with the Lord and learning more about Him and how to be more like Him is my daily goal.
Tack så mycket for stopping by today. I'm so glad you took the time to visit here out of the 1200+ blogs to visit. Feel free to come back anytime for a visit...as long as you don't mind the mess! *wink* Since DaHubby's the coffee drinker, I may not always have hot coffee ready but there will at least be hot tea or sweet tea ready for any unexpected guests!
Gud välsigna dig! (God's blessings!) And, join the rest of the party here.
