Day Forty Two (I got tagged)

Ren Allen, whose blog Learning in Freedom is a great inspiration for unschoolers, tagged me. :-) Before I get started with the questions, I want to post a link to a companion piece to a presentation she gave with Sandra Dodd on Mindful Parenting. It's a great read.

On with the "Four Things Meme"
(To those I tagged, just copy and paste the questions into your blog and answer them.)

1. Owner of The New York Dance & Fitness Center Inc in NYC. We were open for 7 years and had classes in all forms of fitness, exercise and dance. Being a business owner is very demanding but I enjoyed every minute of it.

I’m hosting the 7th Carnival of Homeschooling on 2/14 and was hoping that you’d be able to submit something. Since it comes out on Valentine’s Day, I’ll be doing a Valentine theme. Anything homeschooling or family related would be great.
