19 and counting 20,21...

Really, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I promise. Sometimes it seems that gravity is the only thing keeping me grounded.
We are currently dealing with a lot of 'issues'. One example is that we had to spend 45 minutes walking around the store this morning practicing how to walk. It seems that a majority of my children have forgotten the stay together, look with your eyes not your hands, and keep your hands to yourself rules. Erik is amazing on his Rip Stick, he has the ab muscles to prove it.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit someone I met this summer at the Christian Heritage picnic. She lives an hour and 20 minutes away. I went with another friend of mine and between us we have 19 children. Not all the children were there but one is pregnant with twins #'s 8 and 9! so including the ones in utero there were 19 children.
I was so inspired that she is clean and organized in a small house with lots of little ones. She has implemented what I have been dreaming of for awhile, a family closet! They have a whole room with all the laundry in one place. Think wash, dry, fold or hang up and put away all in one location.
I was renewed by the fellowship with like minded women and so very pleased with the new friendships that Taylor was able to make.
I came home ready to re do my schedule and with the knowledge and tools I need to make circle time run like a well oiled machine.
