We are planning one big blow-out party next week! We are taking the entire family to Six Flags Over Georgia. There will be seventeen of us! All twelve kids are going, one granddaughter, one son-in-law, one "fiance-in-law", Ben and me. Besides the twins' birthday yesterday, my birthday was June 20th, Riley's birthday was July 1st, Ephraim's is on July 27th, Bailey's is August 7th, Logan's is August 12th and Jensen's is August 20th. Eight birthdays within two months! Besides that, we have Logan leaving for a year in Germany on August 4th, Sasha leaving for Oakdale on August 17th and Griffin leaving for Wake Forest on August 21st. We asked all the kids what they wanted for one big birthday party/going away party, and Six Flags was their choice. I haven't been to Six Flags since I was a teenager, and I think I'm looking forward to it at least as much as the children are!
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
