Flying Biscuits

According to C this cute little logo looks like pancakes and butter but it’s really a biscuit and the mascot to the minor league baseball team in Montgomery.  Last Saturday we went to a Biscuits game and it was a lot of fun, until the rain but even then it was a good time.

We watched the sky hoping the storm would pass over us. While waiting for the rain to pass, which it never did, we ran into dancing storm troopers and imperial fighter pilot doing the YMCA.

I love the little hat C was wearing, a few minutes before the rain came that hat was the bowl for his ice cream.

Despite the rain and having to leave early therefore missing the massive fire works show that lured us in in the first place, we had a great time. While its fun to go to a major league game of a well known team (Cardinals, Braves) the minor league games and college games are always more relaxed and provide simple fun.

Bonus, the base is so close to the stadium we went to bed to the sound of those massive fireworks!


The Alpha and the Omega



One of my goals in 2015 was to read the bible from cover to cover. Today I accomplished that goal. I used YouVersion bible app for my plan of action and because I’m a checklist girl I used this chart. I do feel accomplished and more knowledgeable. I would like to go a little more in depth into certain chapters and really get to know the authors and the “meat and potatoes” of the word.

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.
