Candid Family Moments

Our Oldest Daughter

I want to MoM-courage you to spend time building relationships with your children while they are young. This is what it looks like: looking them in the eyes when you are talking to them or when they are trying to tell you a very very long story with a lot of details:)

Our jobs as mothers are the hardest of all. We have to wear many hats: Mom, wife, nurse, CEO, taxi driver,friend, and chef just to name a few.


We love having our older children come over for meals. We celebrated our oldest sons birthday with our other sons and friends. However, all of these boys have spent a lot of time at our house. We have watched them go from young boys to young men. We call them our adopted sons. It's logistics after 11! Lol:)


This is a Sunday afternoon knife throwing contest! Yes, some of our sons are teaching their sisters how to throw knives. Our girls think that having older brothers is the best. They get to do a lot of fun things like ride on golf carts, dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, and all the other motorized things they bring home.
