Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

It's Official

Yes, I'm now the mom of a Marine and a Sailor.  Today, Jordan signed for the Navy.  She took her ASVAB (an aptitude military job skills battery test) yesterday and scored a mighty high 94.  She was determined when she left on Sunday that she was only joining if she could get the job that she wanted.  She had a very short list of jobs, and she got what she wanted, thanks to such a high ASVAB score.  She told me that her job is working with intelligence and that once she joins, she can't discuss it (or she'd have to kill me?).  So, how does that make this mom feel?  Uh, a little weird, but extremely proud.  She leaves right after her schooling ends in May.  Jordan has researched and worked very hard on this since August.  I always knew that when she puts her mind to something, she will accomplish it.  Even though I may fail to tell her often, I am so proud of her.  So, 21 years ago Jordan I were doing this...


Life was grand.  (Please excuse my 90's hair and make up.)  Yuck.  Now, she's finishing up her 2nd Associates Degree in Criminal Justice and joining the US Navy.  I pray she always chooses what is right and seeks God with all of her heart, all the days of her life.
