First blog post

It took seven moves and seven houses before we finally made it back to the South but here we are, in Montgomery, Alabama! Growing up in Georgia, the idea of living in Alabama was not something I ever thought would happen. But hey neither was living in Texas, Virginia, California or Illinois. The Army took us to those places and we have met so many people and seen so many things along the way. This life style is hard at times but so rewarding at the same time.

In addition to being an Army family we are also a home school family. Again something I never thought I would be doing. We decided about 18 months ago that homeschooling was the best option for our children’s education at this point in our lives. This year we will be using the Sonlight curriculum with our 3rd grader who I refer to as C and our kindergartener who I like to call Sis. We dipped our toes in this morning but I’m not willing to call it the first day of school because I didn’t take a picture 🙂

I hope to use this blog as a place to document our times through these adventures and moves and hardships and love and most likely a few tears from all involved.

I am D and I and have been married to J for 9 years. J has been in the Army for 10 years and plans to continue serving for another 10 at least, God willing. Speaking of God…we believe in Him and listen to Him and study Him and trust that each day we are being led in the way only He knows. While being 100% human we are failing all the time but with a 100% trust in our Lord we are faithful the end result is going to be just right for the Phillips four.
