I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Bedtime stories

I pulled out a photo album today full of pictures of myself growing up. (side note - I don't recommend looking at pictures of yourself from middle school, or highschool for that matter either! At least, I didn't like looking at my clothing in them!!!)
 Anyway... I wanted to look at pictures with my kids of myself when I was their ages. We were flipping through pages, and I was pointing people out to them and Canaan says "Wait. That is Papaw? I didn't know he used to have black hair!" And that really threw me for a loop. My Dad is now gray headed enough that Canaan doesn't know that he has black hair! That kinda freaked me out. Here is a picture of my Dad reading me a bedtime story when I was about 6 years old. 


 And here is one of my Dad reading to my boys sometime earlier this year. I think that 20 some odd years have been good to him, don't you? 

I guess the really good traditions never die, huh? Dr. Seuss in both pictures... anybody notice that?
