Leaving Maryland to start our Trip Out West

I have been meaning to make this post for a few weeks now but getting settled has taken up much of my time.  So let me start at the beginning 🙂 We left Fort Meade Maryland to travel to Washington, my husband was getting assigned out here for his job. PCSing always has so many emotions for me, saying “see ya later” to a place we have laid down roots and have grown to love, the adventure of moving, the stress of the move….so many emotions! Our whole family really enjoyed the time we had in the DC area, I can say...

Waiting……

Most of us at some point or another will experience the joys of waiting.  As a military wife, we experience that constantly.  Since my husband and I married, here are just some of the things I have waited for: *Wedding Reception (we eloped so this came later) *Honeymoon (after the reception…finally!

In our family alone we have 2 children on the Spectrum. TRICARE does not cover autism therapies. A separate arm of services called the Extended Care Health Option (ECHO) which is secondary to enrollment in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) does offer what amounts to an average of...

Homeschool and the Military

What does the Bible say about homeschooling?  Well it says MANY things but the verses that sticks out the most to us about homeschooling are “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on...
