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

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV

So were there 99 before you added one or did you change one?

When did you go on a cruise? also... you have served at a soup kitchen....many times, at Elizabeth Inn and in Colorado on Thanksgiving day.
Are you sure you never skinny dipped? I bet you just didn't wnat me to find out. MOM

Okay, a couple of comments here.
There were only 99 before I added mine - I just couldn't resist making it 100!
Emilee will have to back me up on the cruise thing, but when we lived in Houston, we babysat for a wedding, which was on an evening cruise. It was just for the evening, but it was a cruise, so I think that counts!
I remember the soup kitchen... I guess I just forgot to bold that one.
Skinny dipping is still up for discussion. Andy insists that it is a yes... but I have no memory of it, so I say he must have dreamed it!
Also, I really really wanted to highlight the "speeding motorcycle" one, since I have been in a VERY speeding Corvette with Kevin. That is, I think, a similar feeling!

What is it with them having these memories with us that we don't remember? haha. Corey told me 100% there was no way that it was not me that went to see the lights of life with him. IT WAS NOT ME! ha!!!
