A family of ten seeking to glorify God in all that we do.

Hudson's way of entertaining himself on laundry day. He loves his (sister's) ride-on toy car. On this day, he kept zooming up and down our long hallway. He would manuever around the laundry baskets and head back out again. Fulton had a great time chasing Hudson and trying to catch a picture of him as he sped by. Hudson did take a rest on the watermelon which I thought was just so cute. I don't normally laugh much as I do load after load of laundry for our mega family, but on this day, I laughed a lot!
Towards the end of the summer, meaning when we had carefree days before our rigorous homeschool schedule started, I was reading a Clifford book to Lilly, Ellie, and Ethan. Ethan saw a boat similar to this one in the book and immediately began to talk Fulton into making one with him. Thankfully we had an empty OJ container on hand. These 2 boys had a blast working on their boats. Fulton especially took his task very seriously and spent a lot of time on his. Then the best part was sailing the boats in our kitchen sink.
Now that we are homeschooling, I feel as though I barely have time to breathe. Updating the blog just isn't as high on the priority list as say math, fixing lunch, or doing laundry. I will spotlight the girls the next chance I get though.
