*In today’s Kickin’ Old Skool Post, I am joined by guest blogger, Isaac Libbert.
We’re here to tell you 10 things about us.
Stacey: I am 41 years old, I’ve been married for 18 years, and I have two children named Harper Lee and Isaac.
Isaac: I am 8 years old, I’m the Isaac she’s talking about, and I have a mouse named Bandito.
Stacey: I majored in English at Appalachian State University and then stayed an extra year to get my teaching degree because I didn’t what the heck to do with an English degree. Turns out, I love teaching.
Isaac: I want to study science, math and reading in college. I also want to take a cooking class. And then I’m going to work for NASA.
Stacey: I have taught high school and college English for nearly 16 years. (I had some time off with babies.) And I’m a writer. I especially love to write poetry and personal essays (though I am still working on the revision of my novel– possibly a lifetime project).
Isaac: I am in 2nd grade. Me and my friend, Henry, like to boil concoctions in an old pot in my mom’s kitchen.
Stacey: I like to run in the woods and splash through creeks and mud. The messier, the better. I like to run in rain and with icicles in my hair and in the heat of summer. I just like to pound it out on trails.
Isaac: I like ice.
Stacey: I love to quote old movies, and while I do not like movie talkers, I am known to say lines before the actors do. I just can’t help myself.
Isaac: I drink a lot of milk. And I sleep with the cat, my dog and a worn out blanket that my mom says is nasty.
Stacey: I love to sleep a LOT. I like naps and early bedtimes and late mornings.
Isaac: I disagree. I am a night creeper.
Stacey: I have recently begun a regular yoga and meditation practice, and I LOVE it. It has given me better strength, flexibility and peace of mind. It’s also a great excuse to shut the door and have a few minutes alone.
Isaac: I have too. I like meditation the best because it is quiet.
Stacey: I love being outdoors– gardening, playing with my goats, hiking, and swinging in the hammock.
Isaac: I like to swim and bike. Those are my favorite activities. I also love tennis!
Stacey: This Christmas, I am looking forward to Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, fresh baked cookies, wrapping presents, and getting together with friends. I also look forward to reading Christmas stories with Isaac and Harper Lee.
Isaac: I look forward to warm feelings and karate.
Stacey: I believe in loving as hard as you can, telling people how you feel, snuggling and being the person God made me to be.
Isaac: I believe in being with family.
