I do everything to keep my kids healthy...lots of good foods, plenty of exercise, chiropractic adjustments...you name, I will do it. So, who gets sick? Me. It doesn't happen very often. But on Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat, runny/stuffy at times nose and a yuck feeling. I immediately start pumping up the kids and I with good stuff...lots of olive leaf extract, pulsatilla (for those with runny noses) and good vitamins. They are doing fine. I on the other hand make a turn for the better...except that I lost my voice! I can't tell you the last time this happened! So, I have lots of slippery elm lozenges, warm drinks and no talking....at least until I remembered that I have 5 kids. I think it is virtually impossible to have five kids and not talk. They can't hear my whisper...and they have been bickering all day. I am trying my hardest...but I am not being very successful. So, I am posting a picture of a parrot...at least he can talk!

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
