For the love and wisdom of Mr. Ty

For the love and wisdom of Mr. Ty

Blessed by camouflage… There are times when it really strikes home just how much the Army does for my family, our lives and our futures.  Admittedly, I am an Army girl through and through, regardless of whether or not I still wear the boots.  The Army has given me a life I love and one […]

The Army vs. Family

Where does the time go? Donovan decided on a college last night.  He is a future University at Albany – SUNY alumni!  That is the same college I went to as a freshman and 1 semester as a sophmore before I went into the Army.  He also got accepted into the Honors College, which sounds like something […]

On mothering boys,…

On mothering boys,…

Sometimes mothering boys is a lot like running an obstacle course.  You just never know what they are going to throw in your way.  Sometimes it is these crazy off the wall questions that no parenting book EVER covers.  Other times, it is just the insane things they do that leave you thoroughly confused, but that […]
