That's great! Anything is manageable as long as you are working together. My jobs have always been *slightly* more flexible, but he's willing to step in when it's needed. In some ways it's easier now that the kids are older because they are more independent, but on the other hand, they are involved with a lot more activities!

Hi chestnuthooligan! New teen driver, ACK! My oldest has been bringing that up more often, so I'm glad we are still a few years away from dealing with that.

Hi Chris! I bet your family keeps you pretty busy! How do you handle homeschooling with WAH? Your son is probably learning a lot about how to manage your time. Does he take his classes online?

What an exciting time for her! I don't know if I could handle living with three guys though, I hope that they clean up after themselves ;)

Hi emptynester! I hope that you still get to spend time with your girls. I miss living near my parents, excited that I get to go see them in a few weeks.

The teen years are going well for us; thanks. I think teens tend to get a bum rap, but ask me again in a couple of years. ;) If you mean how they get along with each other, that's about 80/20 positive to negative. They have their moments, but even when they're mad at each other, five minutes later, they're the the best of friends. I've learned to stay out of it!
