My family

Well, I have decided that this is the way for me to keep track of all the special moments in the season's of my life. Having 7 children, I always seem to start a journal but not be able to commit to writing often. So since the computer is in my face almost every evening when I am checking email, and catching up with the outside world, I figure this is going to be the best way to keep track of everything.

Now so that everyone can get up to speed on my family life -

I am a single mom of 7 children - 4 boys, 3 girls. Ages 17 - 3. I didn't think I would be single having to raise 7 children but I would much rather raise them on my own than live with the man that I didn't know I married!

I have moved from up north to the south. There are no seasons here - just sunshine (and occasionally rain!) As my girlfriends say - nothing better than a little sunshine to keep your mood up.

I have gone from a working girl to a working mom. From a working mom to a stay home mom (for 15 years). From a stay home mom to a working mom again! I see the benefits of both. But if I had my choice, I would definitely be a stay home mom. (Another benefit to this blog - recording all the moments that I do get to see!)
Thank goodness for family - while I work my parents take care of my kids. It can be frustrating at times for them as they are suppose to be in retirement. But my kids have developed a strong bond with them and they are having moments that they will remember for a lifetime!

So there you have it. A summary of my family. I look forward to sharing my seasons with everyone.
