Here is Ben sorting through some of our many receipts from the past year to give to our accountant. Ben is working hard on the taxes during a "play" weekend at the lake. Poor boy. We did our own taxes for years and years, but after becoming self employed eight years ago, we decided we needed an accountant who specialized in medical practices. I guess it's easier to have an accountant, but I'm not convinced. It seems like by the time we gather and sort all the paperwork and then come up all the totals, 90% of the work is completed.
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.
