whenever you think you are doing the hardest job imaginable...

you find someone who really does.

Though Cpt. Kirby Vidrine will soon head to Iraq for a year, the Fort Bragg chaplain insists his wife is the real hero. "She is the backbone of our family,” Vidrine said of his wife, Wendy. “I definitely married up."

Wendy Vidrine cares for the couple’s eight children – ranging from 12-years-old to 11 months – and she is pregnant with their ninth child due in June.

A typical day involves Wendy Vidrine homeschooling all of the children, cooking, cleaning and taking them to music lessons. It takes a 15-passengar van to transport the family around.

Pray for Captain Vidrine and his family as well as all our soldiers in harm's way on Thanksgiving.

Puts it all into perspective, doesn't it? Thanks for submitting to the Carnival of Homeschooling.
