Theresa

I’m Theresa, a home schoolin’ mom and the wife of a soldier. And I didn’t get here by chance. I believe in spending the maximum amount of time raising my kids. I recently got a new domain name for the blog, because this new one is so much better than my old one. It even matches the name of our street! I’m in the process of moving my old posts over, so bear with me as I get things going again. Thanks for paying attention – I LOVE ATTENTION!
