Please note I have left the visibility of this blog open to the public so that anyone searching the web for topics I might write about can find my articles. Because of that, I will not be using proper names for my family. If you would please refer to us by these nicknames in any comments you make, I would appreciate it.
Let me introduce us.
I am a Christian, an engineer, a homeschool mom, a grandmother, and a cook. I feel like God has called me to be an encourager, although I know I have much to learn to be successful at that. Mostly I try to be obedient, and I love to learn.
My husband: the HUNTER
He is also an engineer. He is my handyman, mechanic, and hero. He loves to fish and to hunt.
My daughter: SCUBA
She is studying Marine Fisheries at TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY at GALVESTON (my alma mater). She is perceptive and wise. She has a pretty voice and a pretty smile.
My son: JEEP
He is a junior in high school. He has loved wheels since he could crawl. He builds remote control cars, bicycles, and now he modifies his Jeep. He has a great sense of humor and a big heart.
My step-daughter: SNOW WHITE
She is a young married adult with a family of her own. She is crafty and creative and really smart. She home schools her three older children and spoils her husband. She is a treasure to me even though I always joke about being her wicked, evil step mother.
My son-in-law: the PRINCE
Of course SNOW WHITE married the PRINCE. He takes such good care of her and their children. He is a blessing. And to him I am the nicest person ever!!!
Granddaughter #1: HAPPY
She is in the 6th grade this year, growing up so fast. She is a beautiful spirit with a crazy sense of humor and a touch of her mother’s OCD (lol). She is crafty and creative and a great helper.
Grandson #1: DOC
Doc is in the 5th grade close behind his sister. He too is a great help in the kitchen and in the garage. He is brave and enthusiastic, willing to try new things.
Grandson #2: BASHFUL
BASHFUL isn’t really bashful, he is outgoing and crazy and loves to make everyone laugh. At 5, he is already styling his hair; he is just that confident.
Granddaughter #2: SLEEPY
SNOW WHITE’s newest edition to the family is this precious little bundle of joy. She arrived just in time for the holidays. I can’t wait to see how her personality developes.
Our dog: PURPLE
This is really SCUBA’s dog, but she stays with us while SCUBA is away at school. Purple is a four year old pound puppy, a mix of border collie and probably lab. She is old enough now to have her own way of communicating.
