This is so beautiful Sarah! Thanks so much for your friendship!

Big hugs and I hope you can make this decision!!
Thanks so much for giving me your perspective. Can you tell me how having my 4th will be easier? In what way? Do your kids go to public school or home school? Do they play together as friends? I'd love to hear more about your family...

I think it is totally normal to feel how you are feeling. Heck, I felt that way going from one to two.

Personally, I think you've answered the question for yourself.
Thanks You ask good questions! And you have helped

I think the more the easier. I have more energy..yep I know, still sounds weird!! But the older kids help and have chores or tasks. All of mine do play together. They are all very close. I do homeschool them and I feel this is another reason why they are all so close.

I have a dd age 12 3/4, a ds age 11, ds age 8, dd age 7, dd age 4, dd age 2 1/2 and a ds age 2 1/4. Of course one on the way!! I was really thinking this was the last baby. But if it is a boy...maybe one more...lol. It is just so hard to say This is it!

Hubby is a truck driver. He is home every weekend.

We go to church on sundays and have bible study with the kids. We have a family night. We play a game or sometimes a movie. The children are involved in menu planning and what they would like to do for feild trips. We are very family oriented and close knit!!
