Crowded House


He that raises a large family does, indeed, while he lives to observe them, stands a broader mark for sorrow; but then he stands a broader mark for pleasure, too.

Benjamin Franklin

The great advantage of living in a large family is that early lesson of life’s essential unfairness.

Nancy Mitford

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.

Erma Bombeck

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses.

Joyce Brothers

Home is the place where boys and girls first learn how to limit their wishes, abide by rules, and consider the rights and needs of others.

The recent census  made us painfully aware that we are seven people (soon to be eight) living in one house!
Essentially there are three family units living in one place.

A few times, Miranda has said we qualified for a TLC reality show, and that was even before her, Enric, and Silas moved in!

It’s true, the house is crowded, the barn is crowded, and the sheds are crowded… (Enric is changing the latter).

Lord willing, the house will be stretched with a new floor soon.
I get the feeling life will still be interesting around here…there seems to be a law, every time we get more room, we still need more room!
