Blog Commenting Challenge!

***Ok, so obviously this teacher can't follow written instructions. I get an F for the the day!  Instead of linking to my main page, I linked to this post.  If you are visiting from Jenna's, or just want to check out my next challenge post, just click home and it will take you to the main page.***

So, as I was catching up with my blog reading yesterday, I noticed that my friend Kim was taking part in a fun looking blog challenge, The Third Annual Blog Commenting  Challenge.  With Colin away at camp, I need a little fun.

Today is Day 2, but I guess I should start with the Day 1 post first. Here it goes...

Hi! My name is Natasha.  It is so nice to meet you.

My husband Jeff and I were married in 1999, but we have actually been together since '91.  Because he has listened to God's calling, I am the wife of an Army Chaplain.  Jeff is also our church's associate pastor and a deacon.  I was pregnant with our middle child when he was ordained. I was pregnant with our youngest when he took his Oath of Office.  I joked with him when he was ordained as a pastor that if felt weird not being pregnant for such an event!

We have 3 rambunctious boys: Colin is going to be 10 next month. I have to say, he is one of the neatest kids I know, so caring and thoughtful (like his daddy in so many ways).  Carson is 6, stubborn as a mule.  Guess that is what we get for naming him after my grandpa. He is super smart, such a deep thinker. Carter is 2 - wild as a buck deer!  Oh, 2 years old going on ten. He thinks he is big enough to do whatever his big brothers do. He sees no difference.  Yes, all C names and YES it does get confusing.  "Carlin," Cartwheel," "Colson," and sometimes just, "You. Yeah, you."  Carter makes it easier. He just calls everyone, " Boy." 

I am a fourth grade teacher. Have been shaping young minds since 2000.    I love teaching, learning, and just being there for my fourth graders.  I've seen them through so many things: moving, abuse, birth of a sibling, and even death of a parent.  For some, I am the only mom they know.

Although we were born, raised, and still living right here in South Central Kentucky, we are open to the possibilities of Active Duty. 

I love being a mom. I love being a wife.  I love being who God is making me out to be.  His plan is so much better than anything I could have ever imagined. 

Again, welcome!  I am looking forward to meeting some new folks through Jenna's Challenge!


  1. Your boys are so precious! Between my boyfriend's son and his two nephews (ages 6, 3, and 2) I have a glimpse of what it's like to have 3 boys. They are all usually together every weekend and things can get crazy! But still very fun. Excited to read more!

  2. Stopping by from the commenting challenge. Boys are so sweet and so exhausting! :) I have my own, and I have to say I think having a son made me a better teacher for boys than I ever was before. Nothing like a wild little boy at home to help me develop more patience!

  3. HA! I did the same thing!! Makes ya feel smart! :-P

  4. Stopping by from Jenna's. Your boys are too cute!

  5. thank you for the sweet comment on my blog! sounds like you have your hands full with 3 boys, i have 2 and think that's plenty :)

    love the honesty in your blog. our pastor this past sunday said our soul purpose on earth is to bring glory to god. how powerful is that!?!

  6. Stopping by from Jenna's challenge! Your blog and boys are adorable!

    Blessings to you!

  7. Three boys - how fun! Can't wait to read more about them!

    I live in Kentucky too. :)


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope in some way I have blessed you. I look forward to reading your comment. I may not always get the chance to respond, but I do read every comment.
