- 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!

Belt Your Kids!
We rarely have a problem with bickering in our home but when we do it is quickly remedied with a day of being "belted". The other day Malachi and Gabriel were picking at each other so much that by the time Daddy was ready to leave for work he said. "Mom, I think it's time to pull out the belt." So the boys were stuck like this from about 7:30 am until about 5:30 pm! They had to work together to do every thing! I did un-belt them long enough to let Malachi go "potty" but they even had to pee as a team!
You know, I don't think they've fought for three days now!
