Kirsten Brewer Gant lives in the Atlanta suburbs with one still-sweet teenager, a set of rambunctious
triplets, and one mangy dog. When Kirsten is not chasing the aforementioned kids and dog, she spends her
time taxiing small bodies around creation, hunting for lost shoes and overselling her mediocre cooking
to her family. If all those tasks are completed, she enjoys reading, taking barre classes, hiking, and
writing the occasional article or children’s book. Kirsten holds a BA in Creative Writing from Florida State
University and a Masters of Mass Communication from The University of Georgia, which pretty much just means she is awesome at diagramming sentences. Seriously, if you want an A on your 5th grade English homework, give her a ring (but not right now because one of the triplets just flushed her phone down the commode).

Since then my family moved many places, back to korea, New Jersey, Athlanta and Kansas. My hub work place was relocated every 2 or 3 yrs. At that time, my hub got good salary but always busy and my kids and I were always tried to be get used to new places. My hub chose family and changed his job in Seattle. Now we are in Mercer Island, WA.

She is going to be 6th grade. John is a boy very sweet and love nature A LOT and he wants to be a nature scientist. Yool , Chloe, Bob is very bright and always happy girl and she can blow whistle with her nose not a mouth. She wanted to blow a whistle with her mouth after looking at her brother can blow a whistle. So she tried and tried and the sound came to her nose not a mouth. They really like pet. But unfortunately, Chloe has some allergy, especially cat, which is her favorite animal, so we don’t have any pet. Once we had some pets like fish and birds but my kids loved them too much and made them tired. (a lot tired :grin::grin:) Because of unable to have a pet, they, especially my girl, likes to give a name to animals(especially the one who has no owner) and trees , one of threes is named Stumpy.
