Yesterday was Bailey's 20th birthday. For her birthday she wanted to bake her own blackberry cobbler. Ephraim thought it was pretty good! With all these birthdays in July and August, Ephraim is going to develop quite a sweet tooth. It seems all the pictures we've taken of him lately have been with him stripped down to his diaper and covered in something very messy.
This is my first post on my new laptop! Our oldest son, Bradford, picked up a MacBook for me on tax-free weekend using his student discount. The deal included an iTouch that I gave to Logan for an early birthday present. We hope she'll have internet access in Germany, and we can stay in touch online. Brad kept the computer a couple of weeks so that he could install some applications and get the computer all set up for me, so I didn't get it until today. I've never used an Apple before, but fortunately Bailey has owned an Apple for several years, so she'll be tutoring me. I feel like a first-time computer user. I think maybe it's true you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
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.
