About Me

My photo
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!

Blogging Beauties!

I recently allowed my daughter Rose to start a blog. (let me know if you haven't received an invite yet and want one) Considering the fact that she is only nine I have been really surprised to see how well she has done. It helps with her writing and typing at the same time. She is able to express her feelings in a way that she has never done before.
Now that she has started getting replies and comments from people she is excited to write more! My Sarah has now caught on to the fact that this is fun and she is missing out. Sooo...She got a blog too! (let me know if you want an invite for that one too!)
Any way I am just so happy that both of my girls are journaling (in a way). It sure beats holding them to a table and using a traditional pen and paper! Instead of insisting that they have to write at least five sentences and having it take an hour. I am finding that I can limit them to 15 min of blogging time and expect a paragraph. I LOVE IT!
Keep up the good work girls! I love you!

That's great! I got an invite to Sara's, but I still don't have one for Rosie. Do you mind sending one? Thanks.

Well, I'm sure if I don;t enjoy it Lisa will, so go ahead and send us invites.
