Hi Tami. I found your blog a few years ago when I was googling my blog. Mine is also titled myjoyfulnoise.blogspot.com. I was amazed at how similar our families were in many ways. At the time we had 4 children (now 5) and they were 3 girls and 1 boy. We also home school and follow Charlotte Mason and also enjoy bird watching, baking homemade bread, nature journaling, and gardening. I have been too busy to blog much in the past several years but I enjoy reading your blog on occasion. I thought I should introduce myself and wish you and your family my best.
