About Me

My photo
I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

    So, can this be comment #1 for me? I think I'm a little confused at how many I can get??! I'm slow, I guess!!? ha ha!

  7. BTW, what makes ME "ME" is that I must hang my clothes in my closet by color and lengths - as in shirts, then skirts, then dresses, etc ... :)

    How about a first date with my Mr. Right on Leap Year Day, engaged 6 months later Aug 29, married 3 months after Nov 27, and giving birth ~9mo later to our first dd! (When you're 27/28yo, it's time to get it all done!)
