This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Oh Ginnie....

Here is a little glimpse of life with Virginia.
And yes, this was a surprise photo we found on our camera when I was uploading the latest pictures.
She isn't exactly lady like.  
At least we were doing school at the table and not eating... 

Tell me that makes it better?

School is exciting for about 4.7 seconds for Ginnie.  She has to be strapped in to her booster seat while I teach the other two.  

Oh, don't get me wrong- she loves school.  
She just wants to teach it.  
And cut things..... anything.  

Each table game or project I give her, allows me just enough time to instruct the kids in their work and replace Ginnie's distraction educational game for another millisecond of educating the big kids.  
If I miss the swap out time frame, we are all picking up pieces on the floor.

All this trouble because it isn't on her terms.  
Troy loves to remind me that this gene comes from me.

What happens if I don't strap that little angel down where I know she is safe and busy?

Well, she is still busy.... just not so safe.


  1. Sounds like she'll be in Mrs. Sabatino's class next year, eh? (And condolences AGAIN, this time for the loss of your camera!)

  2. oh how I relate to this post! We say that James, our 2 yr old, is the concentration skill trainer for the other two :)
