Officially my first BLOG post ever! Hopefully this will be a way for me to share information, learn new things, and express myself in general. At the moment my family is trying to make a pretty big shift in the way we live our lives. The past year has been difficult for us, with personal illness, illness of extended family members, and just the challenges any family faces on a day to day basis. It is a quiet day here in Sharpsburg - the leaves are almost all off the trees and it's cool and sunny outside. My son is home sick and just hanging out with me. My daughter is attending her last couple of days of public school. After the Thanksgiving holidays we will begin to homeschool her. And, my wonderful husband is hard at work in downtown Atlanta providing for all of us. I am blessed. There is no other way to put it.
