A Circus...A Mom....and the 5 Minutes for Mom 2010 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

 I can get excited over anything....

and then there are days I feel like this:

Ooopppss!  I need to tell you about myself.  I am a mom to a daughter (24) and a son-in law, a son (21) and a daughter-in-law and another son (19).  I am very proud of the fact that I will have a graduation to attend in December where my daughter will become a teacher and that both of the boys are serving in the Army, one is full time and one is in the National Guard.  I am a Memaw to the most precious little boy that one could ever have who by the way is 18 months.

My husband, Jesse and I

are serving as Houseparents to Promise House, which is a part of the Arkansas Baptist Children's Home.  Promise House is a home for teen-age girls that are pregnant and girls that have gone thru our program who will be coming back here to live due to the fact they have no where else to go.  Our girls are in school, we go shopping, eating out, movies, picnics, and today we went to the Shriner's Circus!  We love where we are and the girls that come thru our program.  Our girls learn things to help them raise their baby.  We have nursing students and individuals that come to teach classes to teach them responsibilty with their baby. 
Today was AWESOME
The circus was very good.  The snacks were even better and I know that all the girls would agree.  We were able to get pics with the clowns and then pics of all the stunts being performed.  We will have some great scrapbooking days ahead.

The prizes from the UPB 2010 would be:
The Grand Prize, who me! then numbers US71, US57 and US 68.

You are one amazing lady! And what a wonderful family...a teacher and two sons serving our country (thank you by the way...thank them!).

The Promise house sounds like a wonderful place for girls who need someone, someplace to go.

As for the circus...can you believe I have never been to one!
