 Just got my new book in the mail today, Large Family Logistics The Art and Science of Managing the Large Family By Kim Brenneman.  I could not be more excited!  And, since we will soon be a family of 8, I figure this book should prove to be quite helpful.  I've been waiting all day to sink my teeth into it.  Now that school work is done, and the kitchen is cleaned, and my honey has all 5 kids out of the house, I am ready to sit down and READ.  I may be up all night!  Just couldn't help posting a little something before I dive in.  My heart is joyful reading the Table of Contents.
