First official blog :) I have only one follower, and that's ME! Awesome! So I guess this will be an intro blog...I am a Christian! Was saved in 1991! I did gymnastics from the time I was 2 til I was about 12. I did ballet from the time I was 5 til I got married. I was homeschooled from 1st grade til I graduated in '96. At that time I was teaching ballet classes and going to a vocational college to become a Medical Office Specialist...fancy term for front and back office medical assistant! For my internship I was placed at a chiropractors office. The day I started working there was the day I met DH. It was right around my 18th birthday. He asked me out. We went on our first date on the 12th of Sept. On the 26th he proposed! We were married on October 31, 1997. It has always been my goal in life to get married and have a bunch of children. (I told my cousin at age 10, that I wanted to have so many kids that she couldn't count them!) Well, that is exactly what I'm doing!
I am now the very proud mother of 8 beautiful children! I am a stay at home mom. I homeschool all of them (except the baby of course LOL). For the most part I like homeschooling. There are days I wish there was a good private christian school they could go to! But there's not, so we keep on keepin' on!
I hope to start reading materials to train to be a midwife soon. I am wanting to become a midwife someday. I love birth and want to help bring life into this world! I have had 3 hospital births and 5 home births. Absolutely hate hospitals! Will do anything to avoid going there next time...Home is best!
I am desperately in need of the Lord! I know what I need to do, but am too lazy to do it! I am so tired all the time. So I put off my Bible reading and prayer til I can find the time, but somehow I never do find it! Surprise, surprise huh? I seem to be constantly battling depression. Most days I feel like a complete failure, in everything! Then there are days (like today) when I go places and have everyone telling me how beautiful my kiddos are and how well behaved they are...I must have done something right if people think they are well behaved right?!
I have started school with the kids. So at least I'm getting some devotion time with them. It's not enough, as I need personal time with the Lord, but at least it's a start!
Well I guess that's enough for now...gotta get the kids to settle down and go to sleep!
