A little about the ShytleFamily!
Daddy is a Marine. He is currently on a deployment in Japan. When he's not working he likes to be busy. Working on home projects, playing with the JClan, helping me out around the house and every once in a blue moon he gets to work on one of his 3 trucks. He is the love of my life and the rock of our family. Everyone depends on him and looks to him to keep us all sane!
I'm Mama and I am many things, but most of all I am a Homemaker and Homeschooling Mama. I love to keep our home, most of the time it's under control, but with 4 kids 6yrs and under sometimes it gets the best of me. ;) I also love teaching the JClan. They are wonderful and always wanting to learn! I also own and run my own home business as a Mary Kay Professional Beauty Consultant. It is a lot of fun and a great way to help our family earn a little extra money and to meet and help other women look and feel GREAT! I also am our Moppets Ministry Coordinator for LowCountry MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). I love teaching children about our Wonderful Lord and Savior, while getting to fellowship with my Mommy Sisters!
Bubba is our Oldest of the JClan. He is 6yrs old about to enter the 1st grade and his 2nd official year in Home Education. He is wise and a joy to have. He is our BIG Helper and is always up for whatever we throw at him! He enjoys Flag Football, AWANAS Club, Childrens Choir, KidsLife, Moppets, bugs, frogs, fishing, catching crabs, and taking care of his pets. This year Bubba came to have a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior. He loves to tell others about Jesus and learn all he can about our Mighty God!
Sissy is our Oldest girl at 3yrs old. Sissy has had her struggles. At a young age she was diagnosed with Developmental Delays and Hypotonia (sever total body muscle weakness). This means that for the most part Sissy has spent most of her days in Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy as well as seeing a load of Specialty Drs. After lots of therapy Sissy has come along ways, Priase the Lord she has gotten the care she has so she can fight all of this. She does very well and makes gains all the time! Sissy has many roads ahead of her. Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD are 2 of her biggest road blocks that have not been taken out of the picture yet. But she constantly suprises us and her Drs! We give it ALL to God! She is also our in house comidien. Anytime you need a laugh just listen to whatever is coming out of her mouth, it is usually hiliarious! She's the TRUE Princess of this Castle and steals everyones heart at first glance!
Sister is the smallest of the JClan, not the youngest though. At 22mns she will give anyone a run for the money. She is small, but she will always be heard, she makes sure of that! Sister is our "mommy". She is always making sure that Baby Buddy is doing ok and that everyone else is too. From a cough to a sneeze to the smallest "ow" she makes sure you are ok and if you are crying or upset, even if you were mean to her and are crying because you got in trouble for it, she is standing next to you rubbing you and giving you hugs and kisses. But don't be fooled, she is still loud and likes her way!
Buddy is the youngest of the JClan. He's not yet 10mns old and he will pretty soon be bigger than Sister! Right now he is getting ready to walk and will most likely be our first to walk before he is 1yr old. He is sweet and laid back, but when you have 2 older sisters what other choice do you have? At the begining of the year Buddy had a long hard battle with RSV. Just a month ago we were finally able to stop giving breathing treatments. Just in time to find a heart murmur. So in August we will be checking that out with a Pediatric Cardiologist. More than likely nothing, but we have a good Dr that doesn't blow things off and makes sure that are kids are tiptop and if they aren't that they get the best Dr taking care of them!
That is the JClan. Then you have Camo, our 4yr old American Bulldog/ Miniture Horse, Bobby the Beta Fish, and Jacob the Turtle. All of these belong to Bubba, though Mama gets the job of taking care of them a lot, but Bubba is FINALLY old enough that he is really starting to handle them all on his own. Next is a Rabbit for him and Chickens for Daddy.
Home Education is AWESOME and this year we will be doing a Unit Study on Japan with a little Abeka on the side. LOVE being able to teach our children what we want, when we want, how we want and the way they need it to learn!
God is Good, All the Time!
