In case you’re wondering what kind of woman has 9 children ON PURPOSE, homeschools them, and still manages to have a sense of humor AND the ability to think in complete, almost-grammatically correct sentences, keep reading!
I am a Christian homeschooler, Air Force wife, and Proverbs 31 woman wanna-be. My life, which revolves around my husband, nine children, and our country home, is filled with corny jokes, mountains of laundry, lots of laughter, and the occasional temper tantrum….although I try not to break anything when I fling myself to the floor. My job is to find the humor in it all, and write about it.
October 2008 update…..
That was then.
This is now.
We moved and now live on a military base in Arizona.
Where it’s hot.
So now I get to blog about city-living in a 1200-square-foot house with nine kids and one Yummy Man who happens to be my husband. (Which is fortunate since he’s yummy.)
The rest of the stuff is the same…..Air Force wife, homeschooler, Proverbs 31 wanna-be, corny jokes, lots of laundry and laughter, and the occasional temper tantrum.
The joy is harder to come by but I’m workin’ on it!
Winter 2010 update……
Wow! NOW we live in the interior of Alaska. Because God has a sense of humor…..Arizona to Alaska. We live on 51 acres, looking out on nothing but trees and meadow and the occasional moose. We went for more room on the OUTSIDE of our house, than on the INSIDE. It’s taking some serious adjusting plus lots of winter gear but we’re loving it!
If you are also a mom, please understand that this blog is not one filled with nobility and philosophy. It is just an attempt on my part to find a little joy in the oozing diapers, vomit extravaganzas, fake gun fights, and temper tantrums of my every days.
I hope you learn to find it too.
