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

Mother's Day

 I simply love being a mother. Those happy smiles. The eager questions. The proud accomplishments. The pure, undiluted love. The sloppy wet kisses. Even the moments of annoyance... "one more bedtime story mommy" "oops, I didn't mean to spill an entire container of yogurt all over my new outfit" "I don't want to do my school today"
 No matter what, I simply love being a mother. 
Maybe that is because I had a such wonderful example to teach me how to be a mother? 
And now, she simply loves being a Noni. (as well as still being a wonderful mom!)
 We celebrated mother's day at the zoo today, then at Sweet Tomatoes, then a stop at the mall. I must admit that I am exhausted. However, I got to be with the people that make MY mother's day perfect. My mother, and my children. 
 Life is good.

That is such a sweet picture of your mom with the boys on the train. I am glad to hear you had such a fun day! We have to do the zoo together soon!
