Controversial Ignorance!!!

I'm praising my God that I am saved by His grace through my faith in Jesus Christ.  Most of you know what kind of mother I am.  Not that I put much stock in what anyone but my Savior thinks of me.  Most of you know that I am a homeschooling mom to my 4 kiddos, we have one little munchkin on the way and God carried us through the birth and death of Addison.  Every morning, as a part of our day, we have Bible time.  Every night, the hubby leads family devotions.  We are trying to instill in our children a need for love, faith, hope and morals, especially love.  God is love.  We are teaching them virtues weekly as a part of my curriculum.  But not only that, I love my children.  I hug on them.  I spend time with them.  I do things with them.  I make our home a safe environment of love, a place where they can grow and love and learn and come to us at any time and talk.  Not that I need to tell you all of these things, but recently it has come to my attention that there is an entire facebook page devoted to mothers and tattoos.  This page is called your tattoos make you a bad mother. I have several tattoos as does my hubby. This makes me very sad.  Not because I care what kind of mother these people think I am, but that they are ignorant enough to think that tattoos make a mother.  In my lifetime I have met and been exposed to a number of mothers that did not and do not have any tattoos and.......................................I'll leave it at that.  I think its sad that others label and judge based on what may be printed on the skin.  One of my favorite tattoos on me is the last half of Matthew 19:6, Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.  My hubby has the first half.  This is just one sign of our faith in God and the commitment that we made together before God.  If you speak to my children, they will tell you of their love for God, our home, their parents and each other.  We are sad when we are all not together.  So, please, tell me again, how do my tattoos make me a bad mother?!

June Update and Gender Reveal!!!

We had such a fantastic and full June!  We started June with Pess turning 6 on the 7th and on the 12th we got to see our little man.  Yes,  It's A Boy!!!  He did not want to cooperate so we had to go back for another ultrasound 3 weeks later, but he cooperated at that one.  He is such a handsome little cutie and is estimated to be a little over a pound.  I hope you enjoy some of the pictures from our June and we will keep you updated.  All for now!!
