It's time to make this official: Darwin and I have had a great run here, but after 12 years it's time to close down the blog.
We're on to some bigger and better things. I can finally reveal that I have a book contract with Our Sunday Visitor for a book targeted to families considering homeschooling. No title yet, but content will include tried and true tips about curriculum for preschoolers, and how to plan and execute field trips. Tentative chapter titles are "Getting the Most Out Of Your Chore Chart", "Strategies for Smooth Mornings", and "A Sentence a Day: Writing for the Littlest Ones". These are topics I've been writing about for years, so it's exciting to be able to put all my knowledge at the service of the people who want to know how to homeschool correctly.
There are time-consuming career changes on the horizon for Darwin, though fortunately we won't have to relocate. Columbus is home to several major companies that require pricing expertise, and a few months ago a headhunter contacted him about a role reorganizing the pricing function at L Brands (formerly Limited Brands). L Brands is an umbrella corporation owning companies such as Bath and Body Works, Victoria's Secret, and Pink. This role will require him to do a lot of traveling to places like New York and Brazil to evaluate how the products fit his pricing models.
All good things must come to an end, and we'll always treasure the conversations we've had over the years at DarwinCatholic. We're excited, though, for this new phase in our lives, one that should allow our long-time aspirations and goals to flourish.
