My three girls



Fourth of July weekend in Myrtle Beach. It was a quick break between school years. Here in North Carolina, specifically Wake County, we attend a year round school where the girls go to school for 9 weeks and then have three weeks off. Julia is in fourth grade (9 years old), Jenna is in second grade(7 years old) and Jackie Rose is in her last year of preschool (5 years old).

blog name

MINISTRY OF NATURAL RESOURCES

I guess I should explain the name of my blog...the "she" would be me. The running is something I have a love/hate relationship with right now as I am training for a half marathon and dealing with some medical problems that don't let me run like I used to. The dream part would just be my ideal life.

Day one on the blog

Ok, so here I am in the new world of blogging. I have my brother to thank for this...so thank you Donnie. I am not quite sure how I will use this outlet. I know some in my life are worried that I will lose my privacy and I think others may be worried they may lose theirs. For the time being I think I will use this to find others who have similar stories, challenges and adventures as well as to keep in touch with family and friends who may like to know what is going on daily, weekly etc...with me and my family. I will be documenting my life as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, runner, volunteer, chef (a.k.a. short order cook to a family of five), gardener, avid reader and anything else that pops into my mind (changing names as I see fit to protect the identity of those who may not want their world on the world wide web) Hoping to add humor and entertainment to your daily grind as well as comfort in knowing you are not alone is this journey called life.
