In response to a "friends" blog post on being a "head counting kindof family" :-)

Last night we were on the way to an out of town swim meet and had the van loaded down... in the rearview mirror all I could see was kids... all ages of kids playing together (14yrs-18mos). Paper rock scissors, hand games, telling jokes, helping out the littler ones, singing songs together, and LAUGHING!!!! My heart was SO blessed!"

Since then, we have been blessed with the twins and we are still Chaotic, but still so rewarding as well. We still babysit and trade and carpool and share.... we still fill our home and our hearts with children and laughter and love... and we are still SO blessed! :-)
So I just thought I would share my little story with you :-)
