DSC_0312 Forgive the cheesy self-portrait (and my “cowgirl shirt” as the kids call it) Thursdays, are going to be crazy this semester.


It looked a little like this…


Get up, and make myself look presentable.

Breakfast for the kids, and a tea for me.

Wake up hubby, and spend a few minutes with him before he has to leave early for work.

Help kids with math while packing hubby’s dinner.

Take all the kids with me to Eve’s violin lesson.

Clean out the van while Eve is in her lesson.

Drive home, and throw something quick together for lunch.

Put Ella to nap, and find out half an hour later that she is still up there reading books.

Finish school with the rest of the kids.

Wake Ella up 10 minutes after she actually fell asleep, to get her ready to take Keona to piano lessons.

Try to do some reading in a van with 6 kids for half an hour.

Go shopping.

With all the kids…

Which isn’t really that bad- it just takes extra long cause they want to stop and look at everything.

Get home and throw something quick together for dinner while we do Friday’s school work, so that we can take the day off to hang out with Dad.

Eat dinner.

Clean up from dinner.

Sit down to relax and watch a movie with the kids.

Fall asleep on the couch 20 minutes into the movie…


Something like that anyways… :)


  1. Sounds stressful some days but cuddling up with the kids at the end of the day can make you forget about how tiring it really was.

  2. Love the pic, Jac! You're so cute! :-)

  3. Hooray for self-portraits! I need to do one one of these days. :)

  4. how is it that you have birthed 7 kids and still look so good? im green with envy.


Who doesn't love a friendly comment!? :)
