People don't understand me.
I don't fit their little boxes.
I think I'm okay with that.
See, we USED TO fit the box of homeschoolers.
Now, 4 of our kids are in public schools, one is in a public university, and another is at a Christian college.
We are a military family...
...but that didn't start until a LONG time after we were married and having kids. 8 years to be specific.
I grew up Mennonite.
He grew up Baptist.
We don't really fit either of those labels.
We are anti-vaxers...
Until we are NOT.
We are mostly conservative.
Sometimes we could be called liberal.
I am a country girl...
but I really love the diversity of city life.
South Carolina is where I was born and raised, where we were married, where we had our first 4 children.
Texas is home to my heart...and where #5 was born.
Montana was home for a while, and is where #6 was born.
Virginia was home for 7 years...and so very many friends are there.
Massachusetts is home for now.
He also considers Indiana, Tennessee, and North Carolina....
I like what Pumba said in the Lion King... "home is where your rump rests!"
Or, where the Navy sends us....
We reside in No-Man's Land.
It's lonely out here, but I think we like it. At least we've gotten used to it.....
