My Favorite Part of Having a Big Family
The opportunity to enjoy so many personalities. I adore each one of my kids and love to watch them develop their talents and character. We love spending time together, traveling, and creating lovely family memories. My greatest joy is watching my children develop deep and wonderful friendships. Having a large family is not easy, but it's full of wonderful moments that I savor.

You have less than half of your kids with you and you still hear "Wow, you've got your hands full." You have to pay extra to add all your kids to the "family pass" at the local museum. You get in line for a museum tour and they give you your own tour guide. You read the fine print on the "Kids Eat Free" offers. You've come up with dozens of snappy come-backs for the "Are they all yours?" question but usually you just say yes. You don't fit into a regular minivan. You buy shoes, jeans, milk, and peanut butter in bulk. Heck, you buy everything in bulk! You have to hide fresh-baked cookies if you want them to last more than a few hours. People ask you how big your house is. You get pizza for dinner and the saleslady says, "Oh, are you having a party?"
