Hi! I am Lauren Klouda, I grew up in Brunswick and attended public school, however before I was pregnant I knew I wanted to home school my children. It was a God thing! My husband (Gary) and I have been married since 2008.
We have two boys and moved to Spencer Township from Berea in 2016.
My oldest son went to public school for KG and it was a decision to help us meet people in our community and it really worked. I met some great families we are friends with but their kids continued in public/private school, so we are really are looking forward to home school friendships in Medina County!
My oldest son, Wade, is 9 (2010) and youngest, Ethan, is 7 (2012). I have a stepson, Corey, who is 25 and lives in West Virginia so we don't get to see him very often.
Wade is a fun, creative, sensitive kid who loves cats, Mine Craft, LEGOs, watching T.V., fishing, riding his 4-wheeler and playing outdoors.
Ethan has such a kind heart, loves to laugh, and is very much a fan of the outdoors. He loves to do what his older brother does. He enjoys all kinds of imaginative play and can tell you stories that blend with reality and imagination in a unique way. Ethan has never really had any boy his age to be friends with so most of his interests are what his brother & his friends enjoy.
Gary is an Iron Worker and works in Olmsted Falls. He enjoys building, working with his hands, fishing, and hunting.
I love Jesus, spend my time reading my Bible, reading a good book (usually to learn something), creating lists, taking pictures, designing (graphic design), painting, renovating our house or yard, growing flowers and gardening. Before we moved we owned an urban farm and sold produce at local farmers markets.
We currently attend a church in South Caroline, Refuge Ranch, via the internet. It is definitely not the church I thought I would be attending but we are getting so much from it in this season.
We have 4 cats, 2 dogs, 2 miniature horses, and 14 chickens.
