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."

Travel time

We have been on the road now since Wednesday morning. Five very full days of playing, driving, shoping, biking, unpacking, hanging pictures, taking pictures.... and not enough sleep. And we're not home quite yet.
 But it is so worth it!
 It seems that not much of the world is on the same schedule that we are. Letting little ones stay up til 9 and then sleep until 8 or 9, just because we can - well, not many others can. We have been trying to get to bed earlier while we have been staying with friends. We have definitely been getting up earlier.
 Perhaps other children simply need less sleep then mine? I just know that poor Zion has been showing the signs of not getting his 12 hours!

 I have been trying to capture moments, frozen in time with my camera. When I have access to my own computer, rather than a borrowed one, I will upload some and give you a taste of some of the beauty all around us. Remember to appreciate it, even when you are rushing around, with day to day life overwhelming you. "Beauty all around you". Never let it go unnoticed.

I find that the rest of the world is NOT on my same schedule nor am I nearly as "busy" as they are. Therein lies the beauty of being able to enjoy simply everything around me! So glad you are getting to do the same! :)
And I say if a kid needs their sleep they need their sleep...let em sleep!

Mine definitely need 12 hours. Well, Jonas is rarely napping these days and needs 12 hours at night; Susannah usually takes a 1.5-2 hr nap PLUS 12 hours at night.

But we put them to bed between 6:00-6:30 pm and we're up around 6:00 a.m. :-) So yes, you're on a WAY different schedule than we are! LOL!
