Pitzele (pronounced pitz/eh/leh) means little one.  I have chosen that name since that is how I view myself within the greater community of humanity.  I am a homeschooling mother of seven children and also have a small business which I work with my two oldest sons.  My secret passion is microbiology and genetics, but my reality is paperwork and laundry.
