Blog ReVamp

I was ready for a new updated blog. I loved the blog design that I had for the last few years, but I wanted to see a change in my blog as I feel like I have really grown and changed in the last year or two, too.

We have six sons. River, our oldest who is 21 is now married. His little wife JilleeAnna is expecting their first child in March. This will be Den and I's first grandbaby, and we are so excited!! March is already a special birthday month in our family and to add another generation to it brings even more meaning.

My oldest is 21 and my youngest is 3. I am 40, and Den and I have been married 23 years. What happens to the hands of time? It's crazy how fast our lives go. I look back at the photos of me and my kids when I first started blogging and it almost makes me sad, but so thankful that I had the foresight to log so many moments of our lives. I feel like I can go back in time whenever I want to.

We bought a house in Oregon this last spring and it has sort of helped me set roots down physically and mentally. I get up almost every single day and thank God for this old house that he has given us. Life is good and I want God to know how thankful I am for every breath of it!

I am behind on posting pictures, which is why, below, you see so many photographs that have been recently taken of our family. Another little hobby of mine is picture taking! I enjoy capturing moments in time and I know that I always appreciate looking back on days gone by and reliving those moments with my family. Every thing that can be captured on paper (written or photographed) can be handed down to the next generation. That is exciting to me.

I am silly, saracastic, sincere, and sober; all over the map when it comes to who I am and who I am becoming....

I hear ya with the kiddos growing up. I look back at some of my first years at homeschool blogger and the children were so little. My Lance was just starting to walk (sniff, sniff)now he is 7yrs. old.

Such a blessing, but bittersweet to experience so many changes so quickly.
