I have not been able to write for a couple of weeks so I apologize. We are gearing up for a big move back to GA where all of our family is living. So I am right there with Andie in trying to simplify our lives as we pack. With 7 kids I have really tried to downsize the clothes department. I have tried to just do simple clothes such as khakis and jeans with a variety of shirts. For my boys we only do tennis shoes for both school and church. Our girls only have tennis shoes and then either white sandals for summer/spring and black Mary Janes for church with just a few dresses.
We also are trying to make that jump from public school to homeschool. Patrick and I both have felt the pull to homeschool our kids for a while now but it is so SCARY! I know with God’s strength we can do it, but it is so hard to make that final plunge. Patrick and I are both kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of people but to homeschool 7 kids we have to be some what organized right?!?!?! So I will keep you updated on how it goes.
