Have you ever just had one of those days where you feel like you just did something awesome as a parent? Well, after last night, I can honestly claim to be a cool Mom! I mean come on, How many Moms do you know that can say "My son wanted chain male armor so we learned how to make it?" That's right, I wound wire around a pole and cut it, to make the links. John did most of the patterning, but then, he showed me how and I did quite a bit too. There are 240 links in this section and about 3 hours of work! The average adult tunic takes 10,000 links! We don't know how many we need for Ammon's because we're making it up as we go! I LOVE rising to a challenge!
- 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!
