About Me

This blog is a place to keep my thoughts.

Thoughts I don't mind others reading.

It's my place to journal...

the personal and public. 

the highs and lows.

a little of this and a little of that.

This is me...
This is my attempt at one of those close-up 
bloggy kind of pix. 

The ones that are supposed to look cool 
but never look that way for me.

Anyway, that's my face...and my hair...
and a snippet of my shirt.

It was this picture or one of me providing the head 
for a plywood cutout of a Flintstone.

This is my family.
I could include a really neat, on-location kind of shot.

The kind where everybody coordinates.

And looks at the camera.

While nestled together in a flowering field.

But I don't have one of those.

In fact, I am usually behind the camera. 
That makes shots of all 5 of us, well, rare
...kinda like quiet in our house.

And let's get real, shall we?

My husband loves the Colts, 
I have a double chin, 
and I can count on one hand the 
number of pictures where all 3 of my kids 
are looking at the camera. 

Here's one of those coveted moments...
where all 3 kids are eyeing the camera and donning a smile.

This is how I spend much of my time...
Walking, talking, instructing, correcting, sighing, helping, loving, refereeing, 
home educating, caring for my children.

Trying to remain sane.

Trying to laugh at myself.

Trying to make sense of this crazy little thing called life.

Trying to honor the One who gave me life.

Thanks for visiting.
