Last night the kids were all crawling around in a circle in the living room. Each kid had their head on the behind of the kid in front of him/her. I said "Are you guys being elephants?" Then Lundi says "No, this is a game called 'Head But', Mom" Now I know why I had so many kids. KKS
I love them, I hate them. They are great for building, enhancing skills, imagination, fine motor development. Caleb uses them as a way to escape when he has had his fill of his younger sibs (he has his own room now). He can build amazing things and can duplicate any star wars vehicle even though he doesn't have the real sets. I have found them in diapers, car seats, the bath tub, in the washer and dryer, under the fridge and in many mouths. Truth be known, I like them best when they are in the bucket on the shelf. But of course, that is no way to appreciate Lego's when you are a kid. Oh no, they MUST be dumped out so that you can more easily find that missing hand that inevitably sinks to the bottom of the bucket. I have a policy...call me mean. My policy is that if someone steps on a Lego that is on the floor of any common room of the house, then that person has the liberty to throw it away, unanounced. The only exception is if Liam brought them out and left them on the floor. This policy is subject to change if anyone has a better idea of how to save feet from the pain of these wonderful/terrible toys. KKS
Hello everyone. Thanks for all of the well wishes and other comments. We are adjusting well and Audrey is sleeping longer every night. I think her record is five hours, which is great except for the fact that I wake up with a wet shirt and bed. The only place I have been with all six kids by myself is to church. They did great. I even left to go nurse the baby during sacrement meeting. J.S. took Liam on her lap and fed him crackers, the others sat very reverently.
Harrison and Audrey Here are a few new pictures.... Audrey in the bath

Audrey...so serious . Lauren kissing herself in the mirror.
This is what Audrey did while the rest of the family went roller skating.....
I love him. I love our six. I am passionate about educating our six outside of the traditional class room. I am a follower of Christ. I love the ocean, the mountains and the forest. I love art, history and science.
This is our journey.
