I'm convinced I've been blessed with the best family in the world! Yes, we're human and have had our share of struggles and challenges over the years. But God knew what He was doing when He put us together as a family. Since we have always homeschooled, have primarily homechurched, and Daddy has worked from home since 1989, we have spent much more time together than most families, and I can honestly say that my siblings are my best friends. What a treasure they each are in my life!
At some future point, I may write up character descriptions to post here. For now, here are a few pictures, most of which are fairly outdated:

Our farm, in October 2005. Daddy designed our earth-sheltered house which is still under construction. In September 2006 we moved into the farmhouse at the top of the hill (our grandparents lived there until they went Home in Feb. and Aug. 2006).
