1. How are you going to educate your child while s/he is growing up?

I've given this a lot of thought, but have no clear answer to it. I'd like to have them homeschooled, but am unsure I could teach them myself or afford a tutor. It also depends on how he develops socially - I don't want him lacking there either. I'd love to have Pooh (Fenris' daughter) home schooled too, as I think she gets bored with public school, but thus far he's resisting the idea. I'm planning on lookiing a bit more into homeschooling - my cousin did it with her kids, but she didn't keep them active enough in the community, at least in my opinion. There's also the option of private school, but I fear that it'll be too expensive and overly Catholic for me. Still, I see no harm in either child learning the lessons of God, as long as they understand that they have a choice and that we'll support them in that choice.

2. How did you get involved in paganism?

I just sorta fell into it, I guess. I'd seen books for years, and had heard vague little rumors since I was a teenager and maybe even before that. But, it was always "I'll look into it later" kind of deal. Well, 'later' came about and I finally decided to buy some books. This was about 3-4 years ago or so. Shortly after I bought the books to just 'check it out', I met a lady online who was a High Priestess. I had to laugh, because all I could picture was that clue x 4 coming my way. I later met her in person, and subsequently, her High Priest who's now one of my best friends and teachers.

3. What significator do you usually use for yourself when you do a tarot reading? Why?

I don't usually. I never learned how to use a significator card. For the most part, I just do the lay out and let the cards pick themselves, so to speak. I've been told though that for someone my age, the Page/Princess would probably work....I can't remember which suit is usually for us fair haired folk though :)

4. What the hell are you going to do with an 8 year old?

HAHA! I wish I knew! I have a whole summer with which to keep her occupied. Fortunately for me, she likes doing crafty type stuff....so, I'll probably do some research and see what I can get her started with. I will probably also have help from mom, who's pretty crafty herself, and likes doing things with Pooh. We got her a little digital camera, so I'll probably find places to let her loose with that so that she can later scrapbook with mom and I. My cousin also has a ceramics shop in her home, so I can take Pooh up there and let her learn how to do ceramics if she's interested. As far as regular day to day type stuff when we're home....uh....I'll figure it out along the way?

5. Who, out of all of LJ, would you most like to meet in person and chat with, at length?

Well, ask me again sometime and it'll probably change. Currently, it's jeebietree. Primarily because he's such a nice guy, and seems like a lot of fun to be around. Of course, we *are* trying to convince him to head up this way (hint, hint, hint). It helps that the household in general likes him too }:)

Alright, so, as it stands...if you want to be interviewed, leave me a note in my comments. I'll do my best to come up with some good questions for ya!
