Guest Posting today!

I'm the guest poster today over at Women in the Scriptures, talking about what Family Home Evening looks like at our house.

By the way, I spent Sunday to Wednesday enjoying Chicago with Joey and Katie while DH was at a conference. My advice for those thinking of traveling with an 11-month-old? Don't. We had a great time, but Katie was really cranky after missing some naps, being stuck in a stroller and being away from the familiar. The plane ride home was particularly frustrating.
It was good to be reminded of how much Katie's pleasant personality is due to a consistent and regular sleep habits.
But overall, it was worth it. We had a great time, thanks to the kindness of my mother-in-law, who watched the other six, and some helpful neighbors, who welcomed them for playdates to give her a break.

When we were flying home a couple weeks ago and our flight was delayed, I felt so bad for the mothers of infants on the plane! That just has to be no fun--for everyone--especially the baby. How brave of you to travel with Katie though. I am glad you had a good time despite a little crankiness. I love Chicago. I think it is such a beautiful city. And I love your picture from up above!

Hi! It was so fun to "meet" you in your FHE post. It brought back such fun memories of our crazy family nights with a lot of younger kids. Enjoy the metamorphosis as your kids grow older. FHE with teenagers is fun too! Have a great day and thanks for sharing.

I had one of the worst flights ever with my now 13 yr. old son when he was 1. He hated being confined and wanted to use his new walking/running skills in the aisle. It was torture! The nice man next to me let him play with his pocket watch for the last 1/2 hour of the flight and then the pilot said that we couldn't land and would be circling for about 1/2 an hour. I was at my wits end. I wanted to put my son up in the cockpit with the pilot and say, "Okay, fine, then you entertain him for this half an hour!" :) I looked at him on our 6 hour plane ride to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago and had to chuckle as I watched him just sleeping with is IPOD. They really do grow up. :)

I always LOVE what you have to say in regards to raising a family! Thanks for sharing all about FHE on the other blog. It's great to hear what is working for other families. You inspire me!

Ok, so my question is how do you decide which kiddies to take on trips -- obviously the youngest, but then what?
