July 15, 2016 - Baby 5, Week 15

  We are currently parents to four wonderful little girls.
We both have always wanted a large family and have been blessed with the four children we do have.  On Mothers day this year we found out that our family will be growing by one more!  We couldn't be more than happy.

 It then settled in that there are several things we have to take into account when we have this baby.  We are finally getting the hang of balancing family life, business life, and music life.  Then we are going to throw one more into the mix!  With this baby, we will have officially out grown our current vehicle. We need to figure out not only how to bring four children on tour, but now five and we have to balance the attention we give to the kids and the attention we focus on our music career. Just to name a few of the thoughts going through our minds.

We must be crazy!

Until reality sets in.  This is what we feel we are called to do.  We believe we can be full time musicians who stay home with their children, who are involved, and on top of that we can use our experiences to help someone else to bring their children up with a passion for music, for helping others, and for loving their family.  In turn we may have one or two (or all of them) who grow up wanting to play along side their parents and siblings.  We are working to create a healthy balance of teaching them and letting them explore and experiment with music in a way that does not turn them off.  We want to be involved in not only their growth as musicians but in their overall development as adults and establish a good relationship with each child.

This week marks week 15 and the beginning of documenting this pregnancy.  This is something new, that I have never done with any of my girls.

(update...looks like I'll have to document the entire pregnancy with the next baby... whoops!!!)

Cravings: nachos and spicy foods, soup, and pizza rolls
