Ok, here we've got 4, 5, 10, and 15.

My sister is sooo jealous that I wake up sometime around 8 a.m., while she drags her butt out of bed at 6 a.m. to get her 4 children ready for school. Hee hee hee.

I am the oldest of 7 kids - now Im 27 years old and have a 6 year old of my own.

My Mom Homeschooled us all back when people thought we must be in a cult or mormons or something else really really weird.

Reading this stuff brings back memories.

Its not for the faint of heart!

And its something I wouldnt trade :-)
