This year we're doing a Project 365 and here is a little more info about our family:
Hi! My name is Jennifer (or Jenn as most call me) and I live in the great Bluegrass State of Kentucky. Nope we don't own any horses, but we do have a few chickens...haha! I am a believer in Christ and live a very conservative life. I love having assurance of where I'm going when I part from this world because of the relationship I have with Jesus!
- I am married to a wonderful man of God that also just so happens to be my high school sweetheart. We've been together since January 1994 and this August we'll celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary! Both of our parents were divorcing when we began dating and it has always given us the motivation to take our vows seriously and put God as the cornerstone of our relationship. Because He sure put two broken people together at just the right time 18 years ago!
- We have two precious daughters that are 13 and 10 years old. They are complete opposites, but we love every thing about each one! We started homeschooling in the fall of 2008 and haven't looked back! Anna went to public school until the 3rd grade and Holly went to Preschool and Kindergarten. A neat fact is that Holly had the same Kindgergarten teacher as I did. I had her the very first year she taught and Holly had her the very last year she taught!

- I am the youngest of five children and my Mama passed away in April 2003 after battling cancer for 22 months. My dad still lives in the same town as I do. We live in a small town in Central Kentucky and I have always felt blessed to raise our girls here! I have a brother that lives with his family in Texas. My oldest sister lives in Arkansas with her two daughters and grandson. They both left KY many years ago when they went into the Army. I LOVE and appreciate that they served our country, but dislike that they didn't move back! My middle sister and youngest brother both still live in Kentucky within an hour of our hometown.
- After high school I attended EKU for 2 years and when it came time to declare a major - I didn't have a clue! So I didn't finish and instead got my Realtor's license in the summer of 2000. I also worked at WalMart in the accounting and invoice office for almost 8 years from 1995-2003 and quit the spring that my mom passed. When we decided to homeschool in 2008 I also hung up my Realtor hat. A decision that I don't regret. I loved showing and selling houses, but almost 10 years of doing that was enough for me :) I still help out our friend that owns the real estate company I worked for. Last summer I helped him when we were finished with school and he asked me to continue helping him on Fridays when we started school back. So it has worked out so far for me to do that and it brings in a little extra money which can be nice. Since Brian is off 3 Fridays a month the girls stay with him and they get to either catch up on school work or he will do "Daddy" lessons with them. For example, he has already shown them how to change out a light fixture...haha! If this ever becomes a burden instead of a blessing for our family, then I'll re-evaluate.
The reason I started blogging is because #1 - I love to take pictures and #2 - I wanted to scrapbook memories for our girls and our family. I think this Project 365 will be a great way to document our daily lives in a short story form! I just pray we can bring some glory to God in our daily lives!
