Hi Maria, and thanks for stopping by my blog! I really enjoyed yours, and liked your comment on mine. What I really wish is that I could send my son to school a few days a week, and homeschool him for the rest. Stop by again!

God Bless your boys, and as a former military wife I have to say God Bless you for parting with your husband so he can protect us all.

Your littlest is adorable...almost enough to make me want a fourth...almost!

Hola Maria!!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Thought I'd hop o over to yours for a peek and am loving the flag background. My husband and I have several friends who are in the military,have been deployed but are home safe now as your DH will be hopefully soon.
Where abouts in Texas are you? I'm in Dallas.
I too LOVE anything by NORA ROBERTS and can't wait for that second book in her newest trilogy to come out ( it comes our just before my birthday- my hubby has already been notified, lol).
I started to watch the pictures of your miracle Matthew, but am monthly hormonal atm and the music alone was making me want to bawl, so I will look at those later.
You truly are blessed. I don't homeschool, but have a rl and blog friend who does. She is an LDS mom to a brood of 5.
Contact me by e-mail or revisit my blog to let me know whereabouts in TX you are!!
Take care

Alene said...

Beautiful family. Beautiful site. We are retired military. Your page blesses me so. Blessings from a fellow Texas!

Christy said...

Love your blog. Matthew is a miracle. I am blessed to have a Matthew too. He will be 13 in August. I hope hubby starts feeling better quick. See you here or at the Lounge. Have a best blessed night.

Here's hoping your DH gets better and gets home safely!

Ms. Kathleen said...

What a gorgeous family you have! I love the little miracle story. So wonderful how God is in control. Praying for your husband. You tell him how proud my family is that he is serving his country. My hubby is a Vietnam Vet, my brother a 22 year veteran - Desert Storm and the list goes on and on.

So nice to "meet" you! God Bless!
