Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Were Off

The benefits of having many children when getting ready for a two week trip to California.

It is 3:00p.m. the day before we head out on vacation. The van is loaded, the food is cooked and packed, the kids shoes are waiting by the door to slip on, the laundry is folded and put away, and the house is clean and ready for our return. This is not a joke.

I am blessed beyond measure with children who love(Well maybe like) to help. This is our first long trip in two years and I can't believe how well we did getting ready for this venture. I think I am getting the hang of having a large family. O.k. Lord I think I can handle a few more.

Well we are off for a much needed break. It has been a long hard year for our family and we are looking forward to some good quality family time. Have a great two weeks and I will be back with lots of pictures.
