Quid et Quo?

We are back! We kind of fell off the edge of the world there for a while, didn't we? Let me re-introduce myself. My name is Candice. I am a Christian, saved by the grace of God. My family lives in Oklahoma. I have a loving, godly husband and two wonderful children who are blessings! We have been homeschooling for 5 years. C-Bear is 9 and K-Bug is about to be 4.

I am obsessed with books, and in GOOD books. I will be writing about some as time goes on, here. I am a top 1000 Amazon reviewer, so hopefully anything on this blog/website that is reviewed will be helpful to you! I was a professional photographer in the past. I still love it and try to keep my skills fresh, it just wasn't something I could do with our lifestyle, so it has been pushed to the side for the present. I was an Engineer in the past. I have a bachelor's degree in Bioengineering. I only used it for a short time, but it is amazing how God used it in my life for His glory. Namely by some really influential people in my path. My husband and I are originally from Ohio. We have since lived in New York, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Oklahoma (we have tried to leave OK 3x...I guess it gets to keep us because it keeps calling us back). That is kind of the "Where are you" part of Quid et Quo. But, "What?" I wanted to write this post to tell you that our choice in domain name may seem to indicate to you that we are not supportive any electronics usage and are in the Stone Age hiding under a huge rock. Nope. Living in the Information Age is actually fairly wonderful. We love some of the cool things about tech! That said, we are all about electronics as a tool rather than a mindless bit of entertainment (sometimes there is a place for entertainment, but studies are showing we are going way overboard on that). That is the main thrust of the blog.

Last time, prior to shutting down the facebook portion of this "blog" I was a bit burned out. I just want you to know that my new focus for all of this is just providing insightful articles (I may need to hire someone for that...I only have so much insight and it's limited) and telling you about things going on in the world of homeschooling, books, and things related (yes, even technology). Hope you enjoy this new goal! You won't be hearing from me often, but the goal is quality over quantity! Thanks!
