Family Rules

This list of family rules is great!  It is something that I am continuously reminding myself and encouraging my children to remember.  Not to mention just the importance of all of these rules.  Rules are important in all families but Especially in a family of 6!  I better find this baby before all my kiddos are out of school right!  🙂

On another note.

It is definitely feeling like spring around here.  I just spent the last few days turning my compost piles, cleaning up the garden beds and burning the weeds from the side garden and backyard garden.  Crazy thing is…I totally enjoy the whole process.

I had many ideas come to mind.

     * Maybe I will go back to school

     * Maybe I will go back to work

     * Maybe I will train horses

But through all of it I felt SO restless and uneasy when I seriously contemplated all of the above.  Most of which was the time involved that would take me away from my family and to pursue WHAT?
