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

OCD??



I remember my mom telling a story about when I was a little girl. She was "encouraging" me to organize the dishes and silverware in my little pretend kitchen. Forks go together, spoons just so, plates stacked, then bowls, etc. Later she worried that she might be making me a little OCD. Sure enough, here I am 25 years later with a neatly organized silverware drawer, and color coordinated and folded underwear. (don't worry Mom, I am not blaming you for this, nor do I consider this a bad thing... don't start having a guilt trip. Call me if you need therapy!) Anyway, I remembered this story when I had children of my own, so I tried, without much success, but I tried, NOT to make my children too OCD. Obviously, as shown by the pictures to the left, I failed. 
 We got a package in the mail today
from my Mom which contained two new "CARS" vehicles. The boys got out their collection and played with them for awhile. When I checked on them, this is what I found. Neat rows, organized by color. 
 I should probably be ashamed, but I not. I am so proud!!! Aren't they adorable? I did not give them this idea... Canaan came up with it completely on his own, carried it out by himself. All I did was walk in, see it, and take a picture. Of course, now that I have taken the picture, he is going to do it constantly.... oh well!

My DS used to do the same thing. When he was in diapers he reorganized all my canned goods so that they were in descending size and shape. Now I am NOTHING like that, so don't worry about causing their thinking patterns just appreciate it for its total cuteness.
