Raising a Pioneer in a Cyber World
Outdoor Activities, Hunting, and More
by Beth Langley
I remember sitting at my Papa’s knee listening to him tell stories of when he rode in the back of a horse and carriage going down the “uptown” streets of our small North Carolina town. I would sit in awe trying to transport back to that place. Imagining a street with no cars. Trying to picture my Papa as a young boy playing marbles on the wood slatted sidewalks. Quite honestly it was beyond my comprehension and still is. But what I would give to just be a fly on the wall and witness the simplicity of that life, if only for a day.

A Stay At Home Mom Back to Work
Before my children were even born, I had made the decision that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. I knew there was a big sacrifice I would be making by quitting my job. Bills would be harder to pay which would mean we would need to make choices to stick with generic brands, eat more meals at home, and try cutting any and all corners we could to make it work. The benefits of staying at home with my babies were far greater of a blessing than money could ever be! Now, it is time for this mama to go from being a stay a home mom back to work, working a public job.
