Eighteen Years Ago Today . . .

This is what I looked like on this day 18 years ago:




This picture was taken right before I left to meet my midwife at the hospital, where my fourth child and second son was born just a few hours later!  Yes, I know I was HUGE!  But, he was a BIG baby, weighing in at 9 pounds, 12 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long!


This is what Joshua looked like on this day 18 years ago:




And this is what Joshua looks like today as a young man:




Josh is a very hard working son, who seeks to please God and his parents.  What more could any mother ask for?

I love your picture! It brings back a lot of memories of "days gone by" !! I was pregnant with Anna then (too bad you don't have a picture of the two of us!!)

Josh is a sweetheart...a little rough around the edges at times (but who isn't!) :)

I wish we could see him more often (as well as the rest of the gang!) It is such a blessing from God when our children are "pointed in the right direction"!

Happy birthday to your son!!! Sweet pictures! ;)
I love your big family! I would have loved to have a big family like yours..but hubby said three was what we could afford.
So...since I can't have 10..I can read about YOUR 10! :)

What a blessing! You looked great in that picture!

I wanted to ask you what curriculum you used to homeschool your children. I'm looking into information for next year and could use some info. Our grades are 10th and 5th.

My e-mail address is ourthreesons86@yahoo.com

Thank you.
