I love a good blog party! I have found some fantastic blogs to read and lives to follow doing things similar to Mommyfest, so I'm up for some more fun...how about you??
To introduce myself to those new around here, my name is Christi. I am the proud wife of Chris for going on 10 years, and the proud mama of Isaac, 7, and Adam, 4 1/2. I also teach first grade, so I'm a surrogate mama of sorts to a group of kids 10 months out of the year! I love my job and really feel as though it is my calling--but that's not to say I don't enjoy the break during summers!!
I am also a follower of Christ. This certainly doesn't mean that I am perfect, but rather that I admit my imperfections freely and ask for His help to overcome them. And I do this daily. Hourly. Multiple times an hour. I am trying to do better about not worrying and turning my concerns over to Him and NOT taking them back, but this, too, is a daily struggle!
I live in Southwestern Virginia. This is my chosen home, as my father is a retired United Methodist minister and we moved every 4-5 years. I'm proud of my Southern accent and will only get more country sounding if you make fun of it!
As I said, I'm far from perfect. I've got a temper, I really enjoy a good nap, and my house is not the cleanest on the block. But I love my family and try my best to be loyal to my friends, and I hope you'll come back by to read my thoughts!!
