Romans 5:3-4

Chase showing me he is ready for a new baby.This is Cece she is 4 months old.

5 of the 6 rowdy boys.Ethan was still sleeping. we each have 3 boys :)

The girls after their blind folded make overs!! A little scary, yes?

Ethan sporting Hannahs cRAZy wigg.

My 4 guys looking at the new hole my husband dug with his man toy.

we can rejoice,too, when we run into problems and trails,for we know that they help us develop endurance.4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. I woke up with this verse this morning. Not showed to me by anyone but God.He is just that amazing! As I go through some very hard stressful times I rely on God to guide and lead our family where we need to be.Is it hard? You bet! But in the end, it all is amazing and im waiting for that. I know we will be ok, I know Laura will be healthy and happy with im hoping the big floppy Ownby ears. I know Jeff and I can make any house a home rather its here in Missouri or Indiana or Illinois or Vermont.I know that this house my husband built for us is not a home because he isnt here to make it complete.I dont except my family to understand but in time they will. I cant be mom and dad 24/7. Sure I can do sometimes and do it with joy knowing my husband is 2 states over working himself to death for us.But he is always so upset because he has missed out on everything with Jolene.He has missed moments here Cody needed a dad to guide him.He misses night time routine, dinner at the table with his beautiful. Why should a family be torn about just because they have a nice house back here.Or because I feel guilty for taking my kids away from family here.God is showing me that this will be ok. What the future holds we dont know but I know everyday it gets easier to deal with because I know we will be together in the end. we told the kids last night that we are thinking of RVing it for awhile and sure enough the movie RV came on not 5 minutes later and the first question had was " whos cleaning out the crapper?!" Cody raised his hand and called it.Shew thats one thing I dont have to do now! I do enough diaper changes I cant handle doing the big crapper! So we will see how things go.First thing is first and thats getting Laura here big and healthy. Alrighty heres what we have been up to lately.... we hosted friends from North Carolina for a few days this past weekend.It was so nice to have a house full of kids and mom of 6 who understands what I go through. they have moved so many times and stayed together the whole time. Amazing she had the strength to move with that many kids and was so joyful about.She is amazing! we had 4 teenage girls,6 rowdy rowdy boys and 2 beautiful little baby girls! So mush for the kids and me. we missed our first co op Monday but thats alright.Thats life with a large family. Hannah is doing awesome in piano and Jeff is looking for a new piano for her.We have a really old one we were blessed with by some friends but it needs alot of work and the price it would be to fix we can find one new used.He has looked all over the part in Indiana where is at but none have really caught our eye.Look continues! We have been enjoying the Missouri heat and sunny days we have here.the wildlife right out our back is totally beautiful! Cody spends all day and I mean all day looking for snakes and turtles and lizards.we have had a few snakes in his hands and nasty looking things.Being a mom to 3 boys snakes dont seem to bad anymore because you should see some of the crazy gross frogs and toads they bring to me! Ill take a snake anyday!!!! We had kids with bronchitis and pneumonia that lasted about 2 weeks. That was scary and so glad its over. Cody did wake up this morning begging for pain reliever for his headache.Poor guy never ever gets sick so im hoping he is just needing a lot water and rest.His tummy was hurting so i have him laying in bed.Please Lord dont let him throw up! Jolene is talking up a storm now. Every morning she goes up and down the hallway screaming " guys! guys!". Shes looking for the little boys. I also had 2 friends have babies this week and its the start of baby season over here.I have 3 more friends due before me now and 3 due right after me! Should be fun times and anyone not having babies I just have to say baby fever will likely kick in now!
