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."

A Mini Vacation re-cap


Canaan quickly recovered from his upset stomach - personally, I think it was a case of too much junk food. So we spent the last bit of the long holiday weekend enjoying family time exploring local "wonders" like the Whistle Stop Cafe in Juliette, GA, where the famous "Fried Green Tomatoes" of the movie of the same name are served, and the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robbins, GA. Of course they had an A-10, - those are everywhere - but they even had a U-2, Dragon Lady, which was Andy's first plane. Lots and lots of hands-on exhibits, full size planes, history of all sorts. The boys were all very pleased with that trip, and mommy was too!

We spent the night only two hours from home - we needed a vacation. We had a pool, and a free continental breakfast, and no schedule to follow the next day. We walked slowly. We ate slowly. We talked as long as we wanted to over our lunch. (sadly enough, at Ryans... but the budget can only do so much...) It was absolutely fabulous. Today was crazy busy trying to get caught up on all the things that we should have been doing over the weekend, but it was totally worth it.
Hurray for mini vacations!

Those are the perfect vacations. You don't have to pack much and need so much less money. I've got 2 in mind..both just over an hour away and don't feel the least bad about overnighting it.

Glad you were able to get away. I waited to answer your statement on my blog until I was here and knew how things were going. I had hoped we would be able to make a trip to south GA to meet you. You seem like a friend I would like to get to know and spend some time just hanging out. I don't think we will be able to come, though, and that makes me sad, to be so close and yet so far away. Maybe if we could meet halfway and spend a day hanging out at a park or something. That would be nice.
