Whenever I call the kids to meals, Ephraim rushes in and sits down at the table with the other children. He gets really mad when I remove him from the table and put him in his highchair. He's decided he's just as big as the other kids, and he does everything possible to try to keep up with them.
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.
