Roll Call Thread? =)

I didn't see a roll call...maybe I missed it.
I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.

I'm Mary Anne...most people just call me M.A. ...40-ish wife & wah (I have an eBay store) mother to 7.
Four girls, three boys.
Second marriage.

My oldest would be turning 25 this week, but she passed away in 2006.
One son (20) has moved out into his own apartment.
The others (22, 9, 7, 4, and 17 mos) are all at home with my high school teacher dh and me.

My 17 mo old is the only one I currently have in

We live in Iowa.

And we may not be "done". Current status is NTNP, I suppose.

Feel free to jump right in and tell me the whos, whats and wheres about yourself. I would love to hear more from families like mine.

I am Sarah, late 30's SAHM to 6 girls and 3 boys. We live in SE Idaho in the Teton mountains.

I have worked PT on occasion as a pediatric nurse and gero-psych nurse. I don't have to work, just enjoyed it. We never used daycare, I just worked evenings while dh was home. I LOVED working with the older people best!

My oldest is 20 and married and back in Alabama.

I could have many more babies but my last one was a preemie with medical challenges (born at 30 weeks, had to have half of his lung removed, possible mild CP) so I think we are done, though dh sometimes mentions names he likes for future kids. ( He had said he was done after our last ds was born but I think he is changing his mind now but I am not pushing the issue.)

The Lord laid out on our hearts that we are done biologically, we are waiting to see where he leads us for adoption.
Former school teacher now sahm that homeschool, gardens, some poultry, fish and cats but want more animals and hope to have some cattle, goats and a pet pig someday!
I get bored easily so I read far too much and so do my children. We have a large plasma tv on the wall, a Wii, Xbox 360. we go 6mo or longer with out turning on the video games and when we do it is 1 evening and the tv is turned on tops 2x a month. So I am begging to sell everything, dh is leaning towards it and I am super excited!
When I am nursing I allow myself on kindle but nothing outside of nursing time. or I could read blogs far too long.

Hmmm, anything else we should share? I love big families but am excited for the next stage of life. After this one weans, if will be such a weird new life but excited to do things with the whole family with our car seats or diapers or nursing covers. Our first family white water rafting and zip lining and everything where no one is left out or behind like we have done in the past

Re: Roll Call Thread? =)

I'm Anya, nearing the 3-0 in winter, married for 10 years to my high school sweetheart. Suffered with infertility for 7 years then with out any medical intervention God gave us 3 babies and four pregnancies in 2 years! Our living children are 2 year old twin girls and a 2 month old baby girl. We lost a set of twins, one at 7 weeks and our only boy, River, in the second trimester last year. Thinking we might have more but it is a miracle we had any at all so I will not be greedy

We currently live in CA but we are trying to move somewhere more affordable. Planning on homeschooling!
