We refrigerate our eggs in Japan... but we also eat them raw, so I suppose it's better. :o)

I love this: "You don't "spend" time with your kids. You invest it. It reaps major dividends." Words to keep me going! Thank you.

Your loaves and fishes story made me teary. Our oldest is 18, and has been helping three local families take care of their special needs children. One has autism, one has Duplicate 15 Syndrome, and the other is a baby with Downs Syndrome. She's learned sign language, how to give gastric tube feedings, how blood sugar levels can effect seizure activity -- stuff that would have scared me to death at her age. Dh and I are really enjoying watching her take these first steps into adulthood. It's a little sad, but mostly amazing. :)


You are very blessed to have a fabulous group of "big kids", my friend! :)


I do love getting these peeks into your life and adventures :-) I so admire you for bracingly tackling such amazing new feats like driving on the other side!

I do miss photos though (not really sure where instagram is, how to find you there, and so on: just not my avenue!)


Kim- I always enjoy visiting your lovely blog. The incredible photography and little glimpses into large family life 'across the pond' is delightful. I just wanted to let you know that this post stayed with me. #7 is such a nugget of hope for me. As a homeschooling mom of five (8-15) as well as a toddler and a newborn, I have been catching myself wondering if the sacrifices we are making are worthwhile. I needed to read what you shared in this post. Thank you! God Bless you and your dear ones.
