Welcome to our blog! Take a peek at our fun (but sometimes crazy!) life with raising 10 kids (well, 9 left at home)! There's never a dull moment at our house!
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3

Wow-long time, no postings, right? Life has been so full lately-it seems like there isn't enough of me to go around. Hubby went back to work Wednesday after being off after surgery for over 2 weeks. It was a good thing for him to go back, as he was gettting so very bored being around the house all the time. Beyond that, the regular homeschooling, taking care of kiddos, laundry, chores, activities, etc. has kept me busy for sure! Today, we were able to have some fun girl time. Today was our Future Christian Homemaker's club meeting at our home. We had to skip last month due to unforseen circumstances, so we were really looking forward to this meeting. How fun it was! Today, we worked on learning quick breads. Our project? Banana chocolate chip bread. Yum! Of course, that required mashing a lot of bananas.....
Then mixing everything up carefully. The girls were all so careful in measuring everything and did such a great job....
Then it was time to pour it all into the loaf pans and bake it. Waiting for it to bake was the hardest part! :-)
After baking, everyone helped clean up. Everything was spic and span in no time!
Here it is-our finished product. It sure tasted yummy! Daddy was quite impressed when he came home!
Surprisingly, my 5 year old-a notorious NON-eater couldn't get enough of this stuff. He must have scarfed down five pieces! Maybe he's our future chef-in-training!
