I Know it Seems Crazy

I Know it Seems Crazy

  We did this crazy thing called moving. And this one was on us, our choice, our work, our timing—not the Army’s. You see, ever since we’ve been here at Fort Hood we (well, mostly I) have wanted to experience living life on post. We got our chance finally! The very end of May we loaded up everything for the drive across town to our “new” house in a neighborhood on post. The neighborhood is close to the chapel, the commissary, the pool, and friends! The crazy part of all this is that we don’t know how much longer we’re going to be here in Texas. It could be for less than 6 months, … [Read More...]

History and Philosophy of the Western World by 7 Sisters Homeschool

Weekly Wrap-Up

It's been a very long time since I talked about what's going on in our homeschool, which is kinda sad. It's a pretty big part of our lives!

I have to restrain myself from "going all mom" on my oldest (she hates it when I do that). This means gulping back the emotion that … [Read More...]

World Water Day 2015

At a recent Chaplain Spouse Coffee, we played a game where we were to write down 3 facts about ourselves and then others would have to try and guess who we were based on those facts. We learned some fun and interesting things about one another, I must say! One of the facts I wrote down about myself is that I am a water snob. It’s sad, but true. I am super-picky about the “taste” of the water I drink. My husband makes fun of me for it, since he really doesn’t think water has any taste anyway. Seriously though, I drink bottled water even at home because I can’t stand the taste of our tap water … [Read More...]
