I know I shouldn't be surprised since because of their religious beliefs, they never consider themselves being "done" having children but I thought her body would be done, especially after the last difficult pregnancy. She's 45!

I don't understand it, but this is the kind of life they love so I say congratulations to them! I have to say I'm a bit surprised after all the difficulties Josie had, but maybe that just makes them appreciate it more.

If I recall correctly, they are quiverfulls... which means, basically, they believe that God will stop them from having children when He thinks they're done, and as long as they can, they should.

Totally not my cup of tea, but to each their own. They certainly can afford it!

I wonder if the kids are going to seriously rebel when they get older.

I read that on yahoo news this morning. I used to watch their show years ago. It's amazing how self sufficient they are and so well organized. It's their thing, so it's right for them. I'm just glad it's not my thing!!!
