Welcome to my mini home and a glimpse into my life with 9 children. 7 of my children are 5 and under so we never have a dull moment in this "establishment". My husband and I had a totally different idea of what life for us was going to be like. When I met my future husband we had the "how many kids do you want talk". I told him I wanted 8 childrena and he said no way. We negotioated to 3 children. Little did we know that God had different and bigger plans. Sit back, relax, and enjoy my circus of a life :)

Embryo Adoption

I am so excited to say that my husband and I have decided to do embryo adoption. I am so excited for this as it will give us an opportunity to become pregnant and save lives of precious frozen babies. Yes these babies are already babies, not eggs, real frozen embryos. Where the sperm has fertilized the egg and then produced a baby. I just can't stand the thought of theses babies being in a frozen state of being. So that is why hubby and I feel it is important to save these precious souls. We have sent a letter to family and friends asking for donations and we are excited to say that we have received the very first donation. So very excited as we are on our way to adopting embryos.

Isaiah's caseworker stopped in yesterday and she said that he is doing wonderful. She said she hasn't seen him so interactive with his siblings and that she really liked the progress he is making. She also told us that his case will be transfered to a different worker. She really didn't know what that meant, but that it was no big deal. So I guess we will just wait and see what that means.

I really have no other information as we are just trying to enjoy the last days of summer here. It is very hot today, temps are in the mid 90's, which I love. The kids only were able to play outside for a little while this morning until it became to hot for them.Well I guess that is all, I will keep everyone updated on our embryo adoption journey.

It's been awhile...

It sure has been awhile since I have posted. I plan on NOT waiting so long between posts. I hope to make a daily recording of anything from life to kids to well anything, I guess.

We are happy to announce that we have completed all of our adoption paper work on Nicholas who is going to become Isaiah. I am really thrilled about that. He is my baby. Well not really my baby because he is older than Adyline and Cameron (Urijah). He will be turning 3 in December. But because my little man has down syndrome he seems to stay in that baby stage a little longer. I am surely not complaining. I love it. I wish my other kids would have stayed babies longer. Kids just grow up way to fast.

I have come up with our school year schedule or rather what we are doing for school this year. I am going to be combining a little of the Charlotte Mason approach with Abeka which is a textbook approach. I think this is going to work out great. For organizing all of this, I am going to be incorporating the workbox system to hopefully keep things organized and running smoothly and efficently, or so I hope, lol!!!!

My family and I are going to be embarking on a very exciting journey. I will give further details in a few days. I promise. It is just not yet the time for it to be written in the blog. But soon, very soon. We are very excited about this upcoming journey that we feel the Lord has brought us too. I can't wait to tell all of you about it!!!!!

As I am looking at the bottom of my screen, I am realizing that it is 1:20 in the morning and my kids don't know how to sleep in, LOL. So I guess that means that I better get some shut eye before the kids come storming in my room and ready for the day. Oh how I wish I could have as much energy as they do in the morning. I don't drink coffee so I really don't have a pick me up in the morning to get me started. Does anybody have any suggestions of a pick me up drink or something other than coffee to awaken this awfully drowsy lady in the morning????
