I’ve been dreaming up this blog for quite awhile, but have hesitated every time I get to the point where I need to start typing words on the first blank post. Tonight I’m going to take a deep breath and start typing; I can do this!
Welcome to Big Family Blessings! I hope to use these pages to chronicle my thoughts and feelings as I am finding my way along the path of being a Mama to many children. I don’t claim to know it all, in fact most of the time I’m flying by the seat of my pants in this crazy, wonderful adventure. It’s quite funny, I don’t usually think of our family as big. It feels just right to me. We still fit in our minivan. The kids and I all fit on the sofa to read a book. Even when I take all the kids to the zoo, church, or the store I don’t notice that I have more than the average number of little children around me until I notice the passersby as they try to take a head count of the kids or stop to comment about the amount of children in our family. To me, this is just every day life. God has blessed me with these children one at a time. For the most part each new baby has added very little by way of burden or trouble to daily life and outings. In fact, by the time my fourth baby was added it’s seemed as if most things have gotten easier!
Photography is my favorite hobby, and I look forward to using this blog to post the photos I take of our family, as well as, using it as a way to preserve the memories of both our everyday life and the special things that happen along the way.
I have learned so much by reading the blogs of other women, so I also hope to use this blog to talk about the tips and tricks that work (or what didn’t work) for our family both at home and in our homeschool.
