Welcome to my blog!
This is my little corner of the internet, my little online “home.” I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Who Am I?
I am many things. As a wife of over 14 years, I have learned that love is more than a feeling, and more about those that you love than about yourself. As a homeschooling mom of three blessings, I’ve learned that I have as much to learn as our children do. And as a daughter of The King, I’ve learned that there’s more to this life than meets the eye – we have a deeper purpose, a higher calling. As a blogger I have learned that I can have positive influence on women around me, all from my home and my laptop.
I met Big Daddy (James) when I was 17 and fell in love almost immediately. Within a few months I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him! We were married two years later in 1998 and now we live here in the heart of Texas with our 3 kids (born in ’00, ’03 and ’05.) Big Daddy is self-employed, which has its challenges and its benefits, and recently started a blog of his own! I love my family. I also love Jesus, coffee, words, and the color teal.
The rest of the crew:
During the day I school the kids. It’s hard work. I love it.
Princess is 12 going on “Oh-my-word-where-did-this-young-lady-come-from?” She wants to be a fashion designer. She loves to draw, paint, doodle and sleep. She’s my detail-oriented child — you can count on her to correct you for misquoting a time or an amount — but I’m still trying to figure out how to apply this toward her work ethic. ; ) Like me, she’d rather organize and decorate than CLEAN.
Drama Queen is 9, just entering that in between age where they don’t look big and they don’t look little. It’s hard being the middle child, and I joke that God knew she would be a middle child before she was even born. With a flair for drama and performing, she wants to do something with music. She loves to sing, play guitar, and when you’re not looking, climb like a monkey! For her, high is not high enough, fast is not fast enough, loud is not loud enough!
I like to say that Little Prince, 6, is majoring in sword fighting and Piracy of the Seven Seas. He *loves* to irritate his sisters (that’s what brothers are for.) He seems to learn by proximity and like lightning, never lands in the same spot twice. His imagination and creativity inspires me, and with a deep love for science, he tells me that he wants to grow up to be an inventor. Who knows – maybe he will!
Like my tagline said for a very long time: Our house is often messy, sometimes loud, and never boring!
I hope you find laughter and inspiration here in these pages, as I share the “joys” and the “good things” in the reality of our imperfect homeschool life. I pray that you find peace and hope when I share the joy that I find through Christ. I hope you find encouragement as I share about how GOOD God is, even while I am not. What I really, really, hope.. is that you leave my blog with a smile.
