So despite the lack of sunshine these past several days, Rebecca at Mom's Mustard Seeds passed on some blog sunshine by awarding my blog the Versatile Blog Award. It was such a wonderful, unexpected surprise to receive this award from a beautiful blog! Thank you Rebecca for passing this on to me!
- Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
- Share 7 things about yourself.
- Pass it along to 15 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
- Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award
Now 7 things about me:
- My favorite scripture verse is John 20:29. Look it up. You'll be blessed.
- One memory I have from my elementary Catholic school days is when my teacher (Sister ?) stopped class every time we heard a siren outside. We would then say a prayer for the doctors, nurses, victim(s). When our family hears a siren, we say a prayer.
- I was playing volleyball at our local beach in 1992 when I met my best friend & future husband. We've been married since July 12, 1997.
- I couldn't homeschool without my husband's constant love, support and encouragement and without the support of the families in my homeschool group. And now recently I am encouraged by all the comments and emails on my blog :)
- Three out of four of my children were born on the 19th of the month. My first two are exactly 17 months apart. They were both born on a Friday, the 19th.
- My husband and I have been certified Natural Family Planning (NFP) teachers since 2003.
What is NFP? Go to my blog page here.

Congratulations and thank you so much for recognizing my blogs! I love visiting your blog because you have so many blessings to share with everyone. But, you are also a wonderful supporter. It is a priviledge to have you visit my blogs, and leave a comment daily. You are a very special person. :)
THANKS for passing on the award to me when I know you have so many other to chose from:) I just read your last 3 postings love the Mom song and shared it with my husband and kids they all thought it was funny. beautiful pictures of the Moon. Still planning to hook up in NC on Wednesday hope it stops raining or should I start building an ARK:)
Your kind words mean so much and I appreciate all your support for my blog! I look forward to continuing to follow your blogs! You have alot of wisdom to share and your mom and son are blessed with you, a wonderful caretaker in their life. Keep inspiring and keep up all the good work you do!

Hi Tammy at Mommy Life with 5!
Enjoy your award for your fairly new blog! I always enjoy reading your blog posts, especially looking at all your incredible photography! Your photo skills are quite impressive!
Have fun passing it on to others!
Have a great day!
Glad you liked my recent posts. I showed the Mom song to my husband and children last night and they were laughing. My son was amazed the woman could talk so fast and remember ALL the words! That's what he got out of the video :)
Yes, our Ark is built and I'm so glad it's raining now vs. next week when we have plans to meet you! So you shouldn't need your ark for next week :) So excited to meet up with you!
I haven't heard anything yet from the paper ?
Have a fun day today!
I love the idea of praying when you hear a siren. I do that occasionally myself, without any real plan to do so... I just know that I feel unsettled when I hear the sirens and the urge to pray "comes on." I think it would be great to teach this practice to my kids. What a wonderful teacher you had.
I know this is an "old" post but I saw it on the YOU MIGHT LIKE below your Big Hearted book review and cam over...
Love all the glimpses into your life, your fav memories, etc...
thanks for sharing.
Great honor that Versatile award..congrats ( almost 3 yrs later!)
Thx for the book rev too....I do love Patti and Theresa. "Met" them a couple of years ago during SHAHSH's compiling and have been blessed since. Same with you! I'm veryu lucky to have gotten to know you via sic media and now the blogosphere:)
Have a lovely Sunday!
