Mowing the Lawn
I told Amelia and Micah to go mow the lawn, and before I knew it they were out the door getting to work. Who knew doing chores could be so exciting? Leif and Sunny even went out for a turn pushing the mower.
Micah clearly didn't like Amelia's management tactics, but everyone was happy in the end. I did have to pay them, with freshly baked orange muffins....which was a definitely a deciding factor in the happy ending for Micah.
We are a family blessed with nine children. Four of our blessings were born to us, and five joined us through adoption. They have Down Syndrome and are such a blessing to us and everyone who knows them!
Jamie and I have been married 20 years. He is a high school teacher, and I stay home to school the children.
We are now seeking to live together in a way that is pleasing to Jesus as our family encounters new challenges and embraces what each day brings.
