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."

Belated pics from the 4th

Our Independence Day celebration was slightly hectic. Andy's unit had a four day weekend, Friday- Monday. Unfortunately Andy drew the "short straw" and had to work Monday, getting everything prepped for the next weeks work to begin on Tuesday. And even though he usually works swing shift, weekend duty always works at 8am...

So we set off a few fireworks with his family in N. GA while it was full daylight, just for the fun of it!
Beautiful... smoke
The question is, how many full grown men does it take to light a $4 firecracker?
Apparently 4.
Andy's Army brother was "home" from TX.
Andy's Mom had both her military boys home for Independence day.
And all three grandkids, plus her brother, niece and nephew.
I think she was a happy woman!
The cheering crowd of fans
Awestruck Zion
Canaan and Aunt Tara
My beautiful niece Anistyn

Stealing a kiss...
We saw some beautiful fireworks while driving down I75, and ended the day exhausted, but happy.
I hope your 4th was full of energy and excitement, family and friends, and ended exhausted, but happy!
