margiesims.com - Faith. Funny. Life with Ten Kids.























All ten of 'em, at Matthew's wedding. (Cannot figure out how to get the whole family to fit!) 

Below- West Point Graduation- the graduates toss their hats and the kids find treasures inside.

 Ever wish you had someone alongside you?
 
 
I am not Super Mom--far from it, in fact.
 
But pick a parenting season and I am most likely in it.
 
As a mom of 10 kids whose ages span nearly 25 years,
 
I draw from my own journey to offer encouragement
 
through every stage of parenting.
 
 I speak, I blog, I embrace my flaws.
 
And I do my best to find the faith and the funny in life with 10 kids. 

"Behold, children are a gift from the Lord. The fruit of the womb is a reward."

At Ring Weekend for my senior at West Point, pictured here with our lovely future daughter in law. (That's daughter #1 and son #3 on the left). 


Our daughter, Dorothy, who is quite the artist, makes a homemade family portrait, complete with Mom Dot, sister in law and future sister in law!

At my oldest son's wedding in Vermont, back when we just had nine.  Hope arrived 18 months later.  How many young brides can say, "My mother in law is expecting a baby!"  We all found it quite humorous.
