Lovin the life that brings me home.....

The way it started

Once upon a time, there was a girl who dreamed of marriage, staying home with her kids, even homeschooling.
She grew up (sort of) met her man (well, boy at the time) and got married at the ripe old age of 18. She still had dreams of kids and the idea of staying home became more and more appealing as she got pregnant with her first boy.
Ten years into the whole ordeal, three kids later, homeschooling seems scary and intimidating. While learning daily to trust God to help her do the "small" stuff, he is teaching her things continually about the love of a child. her repertoire includes: play with kids, prepare half way healthy food, clothe them, and bathe them (sometimes not until 10 a.m., or not at all), and love on them.
God has been so good and while the story continues on a daily basis (and she is SO glad you don't know her every detail of her crazy sometimes unkempt life) She knows this is the life she has always pretended to have as a little girl. She gets a new chance every day to live out her dreams of being a mom, wife, and maybe actually venture into the world of homeschooling. Either way, its still living the dream in her mind.
