Homeschooling mom of three

Tamara Watson is a wife and a homeschooling mother of three. Her interests include blogging at Unhurried Home, starting-but-never-finishing new knitting projects, and lying on the couch in a daze, wondering how the house could be so messy when all she does is clean 47 hours a day.
