Hello…is this thing on? As this is the first post on my first blog, I guess the first thing I should do is introduce myself. I’m Tania. I am a Reformed Christian, devoted wife, mother of three amazing girls (6yo,4yo,3yo), and I homeschool my eldest daughter in the style of Charlotte Mason. I have started this blog because recently my husband and I, and our 3 girls, sold everything we owned, left our family and friends behind, and moved from Melbourne, Australia to Florida, U.S.A. We made the big move for my husband’s work and ministry. Hence the name of the blog “mum” to “mom,” as that is now what I am in the process of becoming; Australian mum to American mom. As we live and raise our kids here, there is going to be a bit of blending of cultures so we can live happily here in a new country. Hopefully this will be interesting, helpful, and sometimes amusing to read about.

When we first found out that we would be moving to Florida, I had decided it would be really great to blog about the move. You know, the lead up to the big day, all the drama that occurs before, during, and after such a dramatic change in our lives. And how we continue to adapt to living in America. Well we’ve done the big move and we’ve been living in Florida for over 6 months now and I’m only just starting the blog. Oh well, better late than never, right?

Yet not only will this blog be dedicated to blogging about our move and adjustment from Australia to America, I also intend to write about our homeschooling journey—the why’s and the how’s, the tears and the joys—as well as other stuff that I’m passionate about such as cooking, and anything else that might take my fancy.

I look forward to sharing our journey with you.

P.S. The last time I wrote anything of this length was before I was a mother of three. I’m a little rusty so bare with me.
