I’m still in the middle of unpacking the garage full of boxes and trying to turn this new house into a home. I decided I’d take a break to write a quick introduction post for the Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop, which is being hosted by Riding the Roller Coaster and Household 6 Diva. I will post pictures of my new home in the coming days. This is definitely the nicest post housing we’ve ever lived in and I’m dying to show you all my humongous kitchen!!!
Anyway, on to my introduction….
I’m Jennifer and my blog is Sergeant Major Mom. I actually chose the name, because at the time my husband was a First Sergeant and that meant that I outranked him. My son was also going through a phase where he would say “Yes, Sergeant Major!” every time I asked him to do something. It was cute, but he has unfortunately since grown out of it.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 13 and a half years now. He has been serving in the Army for over 24 years (longer than many soldiers have been alive!!). Since I’m 35, that means that I was 11 when he joined. I did NOT know him then. That would be weird.
We have 5 beautiful children, whom I homeschool (ages 12, 10, 8, 6, and almost 4). They keep me busy.
In what little free time I have, I enjoy taking lots of pictures, blogging,
and doing genealogy. I actually have another blog, devoted solely to my genealogy obsession: Climbing My Family Tree.
In a former life, I served in the Air Force. It was so long ago that sometimes it seems like it didn’t even happen. I am now thoroughly indoctrinated into the Army way of life.
We are currently stationed in sunny El Paso, Texas.
It wasn’t our choice of duty stations, but since it looks like we’re going to be here for a couple more years, I’m going to make the best of it. I’m a firm believer that you can be happy wherever you get stationed if you let yourself be.I know that Household 6 Diva is heading my way and I’m looking forward to meeting her!! Anyone else out there at Ft. Bliss?
El Paso is actually kind of growing on me. I need to start learning Spanish though, because it drives me crazy that I can’t understand anyone in town.
Thanks for stopping by my little blog. I can’t wait to “meet” you all!! If you want the longer version of who I am, here is my about me page.
