Here are some tips on how to balance my large family...
  1. Orginization
  2. Active listening
  3. Balancing the budget
  4. Planning for ALL events and holidays
  5. Delegating to those who can help
  6. Family chores

I know life can get truly busy, but always take time for self-care. As a family, we go exploring as much as we can together. Whether it is an adventure to African Lion Safari or a day at the beach, the children are simply glad we stopped to spend it with them.

One thing is for sure, I could not love my hubby anymore then I do. He is a great dad, and takes his role in our family seriously, and he simply adores our kids.
