So apparently our government now sees being German, Christian, and homeschooling a threat. Such a threat that a German family who LEGALLY sought amnesty here now faces deportation due to the fact that in Germany homeschooling is illegal (granted by one man named Hitler… let that sink in). Please read this article. http://www.inquisitr.com/567261/obama-administration-trying-to-deport-christian-family/

Copy and paste it since I have no clue how to link it… sorry guys 😦

So my parents have been having a wonderful time in FL.  The love thier kids and LOVE living the retired/unretired life.  My mom says “I am finally a stay at home mom” and my dad has kids to pick on.  However it looks like there is a bit of spiritual warfare going on.

The site is a loosely based Christian campus as in the only church on site is of Christian denomination.  The teachers and students are allowed to hold Bible studies together without problem. 

SO things are going good, but there seems to be a gentleman who works with my dad who either really feels my dad is not a “parent” figure or is jealous because the kids like my dad more than him.  My dad is funny, outgoing, and if he catches you doing something wrong, he will let you correct yourself before giving punishment.  My dad has suprised the boys and have done some chores for them once in a while (cleaning the bathroom that all 90 boys use), running a vaccuum at the end of the weekend.  Now my parents did this for my sister and I too.  We never had set chores, but if they asked us to do something we did it, but I would come home to my mom having cleaned my room for me or my dad having done the dishes for me. It is something you do to let others know you appreciate them and just a little boost of something nice.

Well the other guy does not like it and gets upset that my dad is not making the boys responsible and he is ruining their manhood. BLAH BLAH BLAH.

My dad also played a joke on a kid who he is friends with. The kid laughed, my dad laughed and then my dad got in trouble and was told my the administration that if he made one more mistake that he would be let go.  Wait a sec, so it is 2 strikes and your out? And the joke was exactly that, a joke, everyone understood it.

Then after that my parents were asked to no longer hold the Bible study with the teens.  They would find someone else to do the important job.

So now my parents feel like they are on pins and needles, like they can’t make a good choice because everything they choose is wrong.

So that is what is going on in their world.  If you think about them pray for them.

 

Thanks 🙂

OH MY GOSH!  There is someone at work who I swear refuses to brush their stupid teeth.  In the morning this person comes to work (late), looks like they literally just rolled out of bed, and obviously did not take the time to use proper hygene in the morning. I can smell it from miles away!  The thing is, this person has a significant other in their life, which makes it all the more crazy to me!  I mean there are times in life when bad breath happens, but in those times your significant other is there to tell you “Hey, you need to lock that situation up before you decide to head out into public”  I mean do you think they kiss in the morning?  My guess is they do not. I mean seriously, they cannot be kissing right? Oh my gosh, I am going to puke.

Not to mention on top of their morning stentch, they drink coffee (which has problems of its own really)!  So by mid morning the office is just rolling in clouds of this persons breath.

Another thing I do not get is, this person was called out on it the other day and instead of going “Oh my gosh, I am so sorry.  Do you have a mint or a piece of gum?”  They just were like Oh… and then came back to work the next day with the same offending order from their disgusting mouth.

I know I do not always have sparkling fresh breath.  I do practice good hygene though, I floss two times daily (morning and night), brush my teeth at least two times (if not more depending on life), I carry VerMints with me, and I sip on Peppermint Tea.  I also brush my tongue, use a scrapper thing on it, and use Listerine.  These are a few tips that really go a long way in being able to confidently talk to people in the morning!

People if you do not floss you are really missing some serious order causing bacteria!  Teens, if you have braces flossing is a must!  You kind of already stink because there is so much going on in your mouth, and I get that. I have been there.  BUT you must floss those teeth while you have braces because it makes your breath a train wreck otherwise.. no matter how much you brush!

Hahaha sorry about the post, but I am so grossed out right now!  I just wanna go brush my own teeth. I think this is how people become OCD:joking. ( if you are OCD, I know it is a horrible disorder and I am in no way making fun of you or not sympathizing with you).

Do you have kids?  Do you have kids that need to read a relevent blog of another kid?  Here is your answer!

This girl Blake has an awesome dad and she is pretty awesome too!  Her blog is Peace, Love, Profit. She believes in capitalism and is right on!  I heard her dad on the radio, talking to my favorite host Dennis Prager.  He mentioned her blog, I went there, and was thrilled with what I was reading!

Kids. God bless kids. Now before we think that my post is against kids, know that I was a live in nanny. I loved my little girl to death and spent all my time with her. I also took care of my friends children. I have been a babysitter since I was 13 maybe sooner. Once I watched a kid, I usually watched them till they no longer needed babysitting. I love kids.

HOWEVER Trent and I go back and forth on the issue of wanting them for ourselves. I know we are not alone in this battle. I spoke with an old friend the other day, she has been married 3 years now and she is going through the same thing. She mentioned she is in small group and every couple in there is going through the same thing. You have a bunch of Christian girls, who went to college, got married, and really most days… could not care less about the baby in the baby stroller (yes I changed it).  What is up with that?  Why don’t we want kids?

My mom (who really is the salt of the Earth, but the comment she makes will not make her seem like that) has told me and my sister “Just have dogs, kids are too much heart ache”  Yeah, Thanks MA! Haha We are best friends now, just so you know. BUT I was a bad teenager.  Either way, there is no pressure from my parents to have kids, they have great neices and nephews that they love and hang out with.  They also spend time with neighbor kids and stuff, so I do not think they feel they are missing out.

There is just no pressure to have them. I like my life and I do not know what I would do with a kid.. well I know what I would do. I would either work from home or decide to leave my job entirely..

Either way I am starting to have guilt.  God is so about kids. He says they are a gift – one that I am actively not seeking.  What if one day I want a kid and God tells me no? What if He is like, “Hey, you said you would handle this on your own timeline and did not look to me for the perfect timeline. Looks like your timeline was WRONG!”  I pray about it often. I tell God if he wants me to get pregnant it is going to have to be from HIM (not in the virgin Mary kind of way, but the … ooops kind of way) but either way Why are so many woman questioning if we need kids or not?
