raising boys.



Before Chris and I got married, or even before we were courting for that matter-- He asked me how many children I wanted to have.

My reply was: 5 boys and 1 girl.

I went on to mention that I dreamt of having tons of boys running around the back yard in Levis and cute flannels.

And then having a little princess to to be our country flower.

Little did I know that those Levis would have holes in them no matter how hard I tried to keep them in 'good' condition and everything they picked up could potentially become a sword in their hands that would send us to the ER a few times.

But all in all, with six boys now, my heart is more than full-- more than I could imagine. And my home is a happy one with forts, adventures and boys who will be best friends for life.

Oh--and a bazillion legos everywhere. Ha!

So sweet! Love my 3 boys and their bedroom floor covered in Legos right now. :) Oh, and don't forget the fact of how fiercely boys live their mamas!! <3

That really is a beautiful picture of your boys. And the lighting is gorgeous!

I really want to link up with your link-up, but my computer is in its death throws, so it just isn't doing what I want it to do!! Man. But your post showing a piece of your heart really deeply touched me, because I've found myself asking those very same questions time and again. This is God's will for my life, thank God!!

Thanks for awesome posts!
