We all have visions of what our future will hold (or at least what we dream that it will hold). Mine always included the following:
1) Marrying a soldier and traveling the world (CHECK!)
2) Having boy/girl twins (CHECK!)
3) Being a stay at home mom (CHECK!!!)
4) Becoming one of the following eventually: A famous actress, a nurse or a counselor. I still have the time and the ability to achieve one of those dreams when the kids are older, but I’m not worried about it. LoL Who knows what the future will hold!
I’ve been so blessed that I was able to work and provide a second income for our family while being able to stay home with the kids. However, it’s always been the end goal to be able to just stay at home and give them the time and attention that they so deserve! We’d like to homeschool them, for how long we’re not sure yet, but I’m excited that i’ll have the time to do so! Children grow up WAAAAAY too fast and I don’t want to miss a thing with them. I’m so blessed that I have a husband who fully supports my desires and who works so diligently to provide for our family.
Not a day goes by that I’m not extremely grateful for this life that I’ve been given. There was a time that I didn’t know if I’d ever meet the man of my dreams and have a family of my own. There were many months that we wondered if we’d ever get to have children of our own. If I don’t have to, then I don’t want to miss or waste a single moment or milestone!

Don’t get me wrong, this will be a huge adjustment for Team Grim, but we’re up to the challenge. We’re working on paying off our debts (just car loans) and cutting back on our monthly bills, but we have a good feeling about where we stand. I’m already feeling so refreshed and the kids don’t even have a clue what’s coming for them!
Stay tuned for even more adventures and “Tales” with Team Grim!
