This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Leaving on a Jet plane...

We are in the air on the plane. Our day started very early, 2:50 A.M. for me, 3:20A.M. for the girls. Today is the day we have all been looking forward to since 2005 when Mike got his commission as a Naval Officer. We initially wanted to go to Virginia for our first set of Officer orders, but God had a different plan and sent us 1 hour South of NAS Oak Harbor to NS Everett, Marysville and the USS Abraham Lincoln. Now is finally our time to leave the great state of Washington (after 11 great years)and head East. It will be a great transition and new beginning for our family, including the birth of our newest daughter, F. McKenzie in late Sept./early Oct.

The girls and I took a limo (riding out with style) to the airport because of the early departure time, they are overly excited for this and have been talking about it all week. The driver will arrived at 3:50 A.M. and we arrived at SeaTac by 5 A.M.

It will be a long day with a 4 hour( yes, you heard me right, 4 hours!), layover in Atlanta, but the end result will put us in Virginia. We will be staying with Aunt Joyce and Uncle Al, and cousin Sebastian (the dog), for a few weeks until we get settled. Look out Sebastian, here we come... :-)
