well, thats alot. one good thing is there are so many different personalities and unique minds that you get to watch develope and grow. it is pretty amazing. the scary part is sometimes you see some of yourself in the younger ones. you are an example and, whether you want to be or not, a leader. <br />
a down side would be i am now the assumed babysitter and if you want to go do something you have to consider all the other persons that may need a ride or a babysitter or the parent(s). <br />
i have a different relationship with each of them. my older brothers, though, have always been an inspiration to me. especially in my art ~drawing, writing, poetry, etc.<br />
the homeschooling is still going. its not perfect, but it is the best thing for our family. i like it. my older brothers are graduated - 20 and 18 - i am the eldest girl - 16 - and the others follow - 12, 10, 9, 8, 3, and -2 months(not born yet) - so its definitely still in the process<br />
thanks
