My first blog post. I'm entering new territory because I've been someone who's visited blogs, but never tried to write my own. I love the ones I visit though, and the wonderful people I've met through those blogs. I'm not a writer, so I've wondered what I'd think of to write. You've all inspired me though, and I'm going to try. I'll make mistakes, and it's a little scary, but I'm going venture into the world of blogging. I'll probably be posting about family, homeschooling, recipes, faith and crafts. That's my life in a nutshell.
I'm married to a wonderful man. He works hard and loves his family. He worked two jobs for much of our marriage, just so I could be home with our kids. He hasn't had to do that for several years, but he did it willingly for many years and I'm thankful for it.
Our kids range in age from 9 to 21. Our two older sons are seniors in college and live on campus, but they're only about a 45 minute drive away, so they come home almost every weekend (laundry and home cooking are important, I guess). I'm homeschooling the other 4, two in high school and two in grade school. It keeps us busy.
We went on a field trip last week with our homeschool group and we visited the local firehouse, so I'll share a photo of the twins there.
Shooting the fire hose...
New hats and a nice fireman...
I hope this post works, but I know I'll be learning this for awhile, so any tips would be appreciated.
