I've notice that most of my recent posts have not been as much about my "life with 8 children" as originally wanted. I have a journal and there I keep all the "me" stuff. So I am redirecting.
My children are very important to me. I want them to know that. Years from now I want them to be able to look through this blog and laugh... or shrink from embarrassment. :)
So I've decided to use my blog space as I had planned. From now on you will be hearing things that I have heard through out the day, stories about our family outings & activities, or just my experiences as a mother.
My goal, besides keeping a record for my children, is to let other mothers know that you can not only survive, but thrive as well. Living life as the "*...stupid hamster that wasted all of it's energy running in it's wheel over and over and over, without getting anywhere..." can get a little old but in the end you can have happy well adjusted children, and hopefully, a nice looking tush too. :)
*quoted from Stephanie Johnson's blog
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
