All About Me

 Hi, I'm Michelle.
Paige is my middle name.

This is my family.

After teaching school for 15 years,
this is my third year I can call myself a stay-at-home mom! 
I loved teaching,

but my own kids started needing me more and more! 
Do you have any idea how difficult it is to schedule and feed and clothe and get the kids to after-school activities and sports when you're supposed to be in meetings at school?
It wasn't working well... actually it wasn't working at all... so, I'm now at home. (I didn't completely stop all teaching... I still teach Sunday School and lead a Women's Bible Study and I volunteer at my kid's school.)  What a blessing being at home has been! 
Thankfully my AH (awesome husband--I love calling him that, because it's true!) can provide for our family without me working.  We are blessed to have 2 kids.  Jessica, age 13 (our blessing from God--who we adopted at birth) and Jacob, age 12 (our surprise, miracle boy who was supposed to be a stillborn).  By the grace of God and support of our family and friends, we survived 4 miscarriages, 3 failed adoptions and one high-risk pregnancy to have our children.  I could probably write and fill up a completely different blog on living through that pain...but how much fun would that be?

Instead, I started blogging about the things I love...
scrapbooking, crafting, planning parties, kid activities, decorating, shopping adventures, trips, my spiritual insights and of course, my family!  Who knew how much fun blogging could be?!

I've met many wonderful blogging friends along the way.
I'd love to meet you.  Thanks for stopping by.  Drop me a line.
