I always knew I wanted to be a wife and mother, but I never expected my life to look like this (military life, homeschooling, and so many kids)! I’m enjoying the twists and turns that God has directed along this journey. I’m always learning and growing and excited (most of the time) to see what God has in store for us!

Why do you blog?
I started blogging as a way to keep friends and family updated on what was going on in our home. We are a military family, so we are usually very far from family and have left pieces of our hearts all over the country as we’ve moved from base to base. Along the way I realized that what I was writing was encouraging to other moms I knew, and so that became another focus of the blog. I blog at least once a week, usually more often.

Why do you homeschool?
Oh, we have so many reasons for homeschooling! Before our oldest was even old enough for school we were blessed with a child that just *needed* to be homeschooled (some may call that a difficult child), we knew that he was a smart, bright, sensitive little guy, but that if sent to school he would end up labeled and in some “special” class. Worse yet, we could tell that his dear little heart would not do well in such an environment. We need to take responsibility for this child’s education and his emotional development. So, the choice was made to homeschool all of our children…. Now we have so many reasons to homeschool- our faith, socialization, being able to choose what our kids are learning about….I could go on and on, but you get the idea! (by the way, that child I mentioned is doing VERY well! No one who meets him now would suspect HE was the one that threw us for such a loop!)
