The life of a large family is different than that of a small family. It just is. There are so many people coming and going. There are so many different ages of kids in and out of the house. There are so many different interests and personalities coexisting and trying to get along.
But there is still only one mom. One mom to try to meet everyone's unique needs. One mom to keep up with the comings and goings, interests, unique personalities of all the children, not to mention her husband. One mom to keep things running smoothly (and keep all the laundry done). :)
It is tiring. But it's all I know. And I love it. I would not have it any other way!!

Large families have lots of...
and more clothes.
What to do?
What to do?
Sort them, size them, hang them and "shop" them.
We have a clothing store in our house. It has two entrances, ample lighting, carpet, hanging racks and shelves and plenty of clothes for all 9 of our children organized by size, season and sex in sizes 4T to Adult L. Sounds luxurious and expensive doesn't it? Keep reading for full details and pictures.

As I have mentioned I am reading and editing all 1722 posts from my former blog. I had no pictures of J, D, P or B on the post about them prior to their adoption because they were foster children, so I am adding pictures. I used fake names for the four of them also so I am changing their names in every single post and under labels of every post. And if that isn't enough, at the ends of some of the posts I am adding "my thoughts" as of 10/2014.
