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

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Friday, January 23, 2009


We're just a little obsessed with cars around here.

My boys lined their cars up so nicely the other day, I could hardly bear to fuss at them for scratching up the piano! (Carrie, do you see yourself in the corner of this picture? Emilee, you are on the other far side. Chrissy, you are there too, but you can't tell because of the glare. That is the "wedding piano".)

My car battery needed replacing this afternoon. 
(this is a picture of the engine, not the battery... I just thought it looked cool with the tools sitting on top of it)

My super sexy husband got out his tools and changed it for me. 
He kept asking me not to take pictures...
I am fairly sure that this picture is the one that was responded to with, "Woman, you don't obey a thing I say!" I just laughed, and took another picture!
Look at him buffing off my dirty, battery acid covered plate!
...and putting it all back together again.
Like Father, like Son!
Proudly fixing his brother's "car". 

And this picture is just because he is cute!
