My First Series: Getting It All Done: Life in a Large Family

I've been asked by many people how we do it.  I think they mean how do we handle life with six kids--when one of them is in a wheelchair and has a severe disability. How are we able to do day-day tasks, and still manage to homeschool, go shopping, raise farm animals, and do everything else that we do. 

Here is the answer--by the grace of God.  I fully trust that He will never give me more than I can handle.  I am honest about the fact that without Him--I would utterly fail; no matter how many kids I have.  He has brought resources into my life at the perfect time that have helped us to adapt a little bit. Books, blog posts, sermons...these resources come in a variety of methods.  But we are so thankful for them.

We keep growing.  We keep tweaking. We definitely aren't there yet--I doubt that we'll ever be.  But this series will look at some of the everyday ways that we manage life.  Topics that I will cover include:

*Shopping Expeditions 
*Shopping Part Two
*The Daily Grind
*Farm Chores
* The Library
*Cooking Real Food
*Homeschooling

And maybe more.  If you have a question about something in particular that we do--ask away!  I'll try my best to answer. Just remember that this is just what works for us.  We are a work in progress.
