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."

Museums and Campgrounds

 According to Andy, I have been getting behind in my posting. After looking through some pictures from the last few weeks, I realized that I did skip a bit here and there. 
 I didn't take many pictures when we went to the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit at the High Museum of Art. However, if you want to see some fabulous shots from that day, drop by my sister Emilee's blog
This is my favorite picture on my camera from that day. Isn't that an awesome bench? It is a solid log, with chair backs put right into it. I LOVED it. 

Another great adventure we had recently was our "camping trip". The same day we got back from Josh's basic training graduation, we went up to Red Top mountain where Emilee and Kevin were camping. We hiked, cooked over an open fire, and observed God's beautiful creation up close and personal. 

A beautiful sky, looked at through a beautiful canopy of green.
Now this is what Uncles are for....
Butch and Zion gathering firewood.

Poor Butch was all worn out after working so hard...

Canaan was very enthusiastic in his assistance with building the fire. Perhaps I should be concerned that I have a future pyromaniac on my hands? 

Oh, the energy and enthusiasm of youth!
Hail the conquering heros! 
Just a little piece of beauty, peeking out from under the leaves.

My Mommy and I
A beautiful Sunset, the closing of a beautiful day.

Can you tell that I like it out there? All those little bits of beauty, just waiting to be appreciated?

 Strangely enough, we didn't end up staying the night. The forecast called for rain to start around midnight. Since Em and Kevin, Mom and Dad had already stayed one night, we all decided to pack up camp and go home around 8pm. With two little ones, and a pop-up camper that will mildew if taken down when wet, staying out overnight just didn't seem worth it after the sun went down! 

 You can read more about it, and see a couple other pictures on Emilee's blog. She used my photo's, but I tried to use some different ones....

Future pyro's are best served by becoming Boy Scouts. Then they get to play with fire every year...legally and with adult supervision! Worked for us!
