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!

Just bragging...

The Girls have been learning about lines of motion for quite a while. They are both pretty talented in their drawing so John and I asked them to draw a picture for a friend of ours. Our only instructions to them were to take their time and use their imaginations.
Sarah chose to draw a waterfall scene. She drew a bear with a salmon jumping out of the river. There is also a a fox and an eagle.

Rose chose to do a forest. I wish you could see all the detail she put in the trunks. She used the shading techniques we learned about in art a couple of weeks ago too!
Truly, these picture do not do the drawings justice. They are beautiful!
