I'm really diggin' this blog thing

Okay...okay..okay. I know I just posted, but I am really starting to like blogging. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, I don't know. When school starts back up in January you may not be hearing much out of me so take it ALL in while you can! Ha! Right now I want to talk about the seven families. I could talk for pages and pages about the seven families. No, it is not a cult if that is what you are thinking. There are seven families, including my family that have been friends for years and it is a very unique friendship that no one can separate. About ten years ago, our families helped start a church here in Arkansas, and these families were the seven families that started it. Ever since then, I feel that we are all one large family. Yes, I have sixteen brothers and sisters! Sometimes I tell people that, and they get a really confused look on their face. It takes me a while to explain it, and many people are still confused at how close we all are to each other. We're so close to each other that we're not afraid to tell it like it is, or act like goofballs when we're all together. I do not see friendships like this very often, and I know that God brought us all together for a reason. We have gone through a lot together. I remember when we were first starting our church, and we would meet at one of our houses. Our parent's were concerned and prayed hard about all of the kids not being in a normal "church environment" with no Sunday school or youth groups for us to be involved in. God really watched out for all of us, and I can proudly say that each of my brothers and sisters from the seven families are GREAT kids! We have some of the greatest and funniest memories! I will have to upload some old photos of all of us on here. The top two pictures are all the kids at Courtney's wedding and the last one is a picture of all of my brothers and sisters on my wedding day. There are two missing though: Bear and Anna. These guys mean the world to me, and will always be some of my best friends. God knew exactly what he was doing when he put all of us together, not only are we great friends, but we consider each other family. I hope my children can someday experience the kind of friendships that I have seen throughout my childhood.
