This is my maiden voyage in blogging. I was searching for a spot in which to document a "baby book" if you will for my youngest son Jack. He is the youngest of 5 children. Then I thought to myself....Jack is just one important piece of our family, and his story is OUR story. At least this way, I have a living document if you will, of Jacks youth and our big, loud, crazy, beautiful family.
As I said, Jack is our youngest. He is 4. William is 5, Hope 17, Emily 20 and Joe very soon to be 25.
My name is Susan, I am 44. I love to journal, so what better way for me to do so than this?
Life interupted sums it up....5 kids, 4 living at home, a husband and one obnoxious Golden Retriever a 15 yr old Step Daughter...and a partridge in a pear tree! Ordinary, everyday family full of ordinary, everyday miracles.
This is my story....our story....for my own pleasure and some words to leave behind. In the end, I hope to leave more than just words, but rather a tapestry of a rich, fun, full life with some of the most amazing people you could ever meet.
I really don't know how this works...I mean, I am kind of just picking up in my mid 40's. Lots of history, but much more to come...God willing. So, to that end, I suppose I will blog away at our everyday, and hope to include some of the "water under the bridge" and go from there.
