I'm a stay at home mom and wife with a passion for family, creating and photography. I'm a little bit quirky and a little bit odd, but that's what makes me...well me. I'm a jack of all trades. So check back often because, to paraphrase Forest Gump's mom "I'm like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get.

Teen invasion.

This is a quick little note. I've been invaded by three teen girls for the week. The are my hubby's nieces and have really had a rough way of it. So we like to have them stay with us for a week in the summer. This is the first time in a while they have stayed out of trouble and kept their grades high enough to come for a visit. They are great girls and they totally adore Sage. Here's an introduction.

First there is Paris she's a typical teenager of 16. Probably a bit older than her years, but in her young life she has seen a lot, and had a lot of the responsibility of making sure her sisters were cared for.

Then you have Tori the middle child. She's a good kid, but she definitely has the middle child syndrome, and a tendency to do whatever it takes to get her attention.

Then there is Jackson Danielle. Everyone calls her Dani, I call her Jackson or Jack. A wild little spawn at times, but the most gentlest of soul at other times. She loves Sage and I believe even at 12yrs old she would sacrifice herself for my son.

I love these girls with all my heart. I want the best for them. They've had enough crap thrown there way to make a good man bad, they deserve more in life. I'm glad that finally things are starting to go their way. I just hope that they don't repeat the mistake that those before them have made.

It's great that you guys can take the girls for part of the summer. It's probably a fun and positive experience for them as much as for you. That love you give them can go such a long way!!! Have a great summer.

Thanks, that's what we try to to. My husband came from fairly poor background, but was blessed to have a best friend who took him in and show him things outside of small town West Virgina. I was blessed with a middle class up bring, so I saw and did a lot. We just want the girls to experience the same thing. Plus, I want them to know a strong female that allows them to be themselves. They really don't have that.
