About Me

profile2Welcome to the Green Catholic Burrow!  I’m a wife and mom to 8; I’m also a rookie Catholic (Tiber Swim Team 2016! :)), a longtime homeschooler, dabbler in fitness, respectable cook, Molly Weasley wannabe, and general jack-of-all-trades.  Except lawn care.  I’m hopeless there – sorry, neighbors.  Truly.  At least the chickens eat some of the weeds.

So why the Green Catholic Burrow?

Well, it’s green for a lot of things.  I love green; it’s the liturgical color for Ordinary Time, a time for living and learning, and a symbol of hope and growth.  I’m also sort of halfway crunchy and environmentally conscious, so I have green covered there…and finally, I’m a “green Catholic” in that I am a new convert to the Catholic Church, coming from a conservative Presbyterian background.

It’s Catholic because – wait, I already told you that.  Twice.  Pay attention.

And it’s the Burrow because the Weasley’s house reminds me of my own: the big noisy family, the disarray, the overflowing bookshelves, the gritty real life, and the love and happiness.  I want to be Mrs. Weasley when I grow up, and I wish I could wave my wand and make the dishes wash themselves.
