One of their sons was actually a really good ball player for the University of Arkansas baseball team (Jake). Really nice family though, had the chance to meet a lot of them.

star I love big families

I would have loved to have one myself, but it was not to be. I had to settle for only 3, of course they are all perfect, so that makes up for not having more!
I grew up with 5 brothers and 1 sister, and I can remember many good times. Three thumbs up for big families!

They seem to be a happy family and I wish them all the best.

I came from a family of 5 kids and things were tight and cramped...I can't imagine having 17 brothers and sisters!

What a fantastic story of love & the true meaning of how a family should be today. We have lost what it means to be a family with both parents working , a busy lifestyle & no family dinner time anymore.

I know what you mean, Mamma. I called a "family meeting" once to announce that I wanted to have dinner with my family each night instead of eating in front of the TV or taking off right after school and grabbing food at someone else's house. It stemmed from stopping by to pick up a friend of my to walk to school with her. She had a family of seven siblings and when I stopped to pick her up, her brother let me in and ushered me up the steps to the huge kitchen (with a dining area), they were all holding hands around the breakfast table.
I wanted that family instead of the one I had, my brothers and I ate our breakfast with cereal boxes to block our view of each other.

Well, my family meeting resulted in Monday to Thursday and Sunday meals at the table, Friday and Saturday were optional.

I guess I was looking for the Walton's. Oh well, I got the "Hatfields and McCoys" I guess.

We're closer now though.

Jeff and Jana - I can't believe people actually say things like that. What nerve. My mom was an only child, my dad had three siblings and three cousins living with him, his mom came from a family of nine.

I'd love to have enough children to run to the park and have a family baseball game.

I agree gals. Having dinner as family is also important to me. It's important to take that time and sit down together as a family to discuss things and be together. It's mandatory in my household. And it was also like that when I was growing up. Larissa brought a monthly flyer home from school that talks about a little of this and that and I recall reading one of the articles in it about having dinner as a family and staying connected in each others lives and that by doing this they are less likely to try drugs, smoking and alcohol.
