style="text-align: center;">When I first met Ang four years ago it was a big deal for me.  We had WAY too much in common and our phone calls were always animated and interesting.  (We met cause of Blogland and a mutual friend.)  But I was arrested in the impact her children made on me.  At the time Aidan was so little and I was slowly but surely warming up to the idea of Homeschooling… we were almost completely weaned off television by that point… I was about two years into my journey of, I suppose, some would say, “being weird” – in that I found myself more conservative with every sunrise, more ready to learn to honor and serve my husband, my desire (because Aidan was quickly getting older) to protect my children from the outside world was getting sharper and more articulate…  I began blogging six years ago when he was four months old, you can probably chart my “progress” from my first blog post…
But anyways… when I met Homemaker Ang’s children, in particular her eldest girls, I was bowled over.  I will NEVER forget the impact they made on Joel and I.  For the first time IN MY LIFE I encountered teenagers without a gigantic CHIP on their shoulder, teenagers that were innocent and not ONE BIT dorky but on the contrary; very cool!… Teenagers that had skills, teenagers that thought the other, boy crazy girls were rather ridiculous… they even called them “Totally” girls in slight mockery of the way the typical teen girl talks…
It gave me hope that this way of parenting that some people would call “different” (I call it “intentional”) can actually have a pleasant end result… that not all teens rebel… that a home can be loving and not ravaged by the teen years…
Anyways… sorry, I am prattling… but check out this clip from todays show…
I love you girls!  Keep on this path!  God’s blessing is surely upon you!
PS:  Sadly thru talk radio osmosis and magazine covers in the checkout lanes I know who the Kardashians are but I have no idea why they are famous.  I am assuming it’s the mass amount of exposed curves?  I think they have a reality show or something right?
Yikes.
