We all slept late, packed up, and picked Ephraim up around noon. Just as I thought, Ephraim had received non-stop attention while we were playing at Six Flags. We called to tell them we were on our way and were told Ephraim was busy playing in the bathtub. When we got there, Ephraim was taking his nap in D-Daddy's lap. D-Daddy said he didn't know how we did it because Ephraim had been a full-time job for both he and Gladys the entire day!
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.
