At the end of Part 4, Lisa had just given birth to baby #5, Andrew.
As space was now rather at a premium, we purchased a bunk bed for the girls' room.
My garden plants needed weeding, so I got going that evening whilst whistling my favourite hymn.
Once all the older children had gone off to school...
Success! Baby #6 was on the way!
Meanwhile, little Andrew became a toddler. We love you, Andrew!
Baby #6 turned out to be... another girl! We stuck the ultrasound scan up on the wall, alongside the others. Girls on the left, boys on the right.
A lot of leaves had fallen in our back garden, so Michael raked them up.
I also made sure to keep up with my painting skills. I love being able to capture God's creation!
Andrew is a curious little kid, and loves to find out what things are and what they do. I came across him investigating the rubbish bin.
Rebecca formed a children's club by which she could meet and socialise with other kids. As well as inviting neighbourhood kids, she also included Joseph and Elizabeth.
Whilst I enjoyed painting, I also fancied trying out other ways of making myself a little money from home. So, I decided to try writing books.
It was time to give birth to my little girl! We gave her the name Naomi.
Daniel became a child!
And... I got pregnant again! Wow, the Lord is truly blessing me with so many babies!
It was now Winterfest, and we were only too eager to decorate the tree.
The children enjoyed playing with the snow outside.
Naomi grew up...
... as did Rebecca! I can't believe I already have a teenage daughter!
Naomi and Andrew were super excited to open their presents!
The day after Winterfest, I was really excited to go and get my ultrasound.
To my shock, I discovered we were expecting TWINS! Two girls, to be exact. Man, we were definitely going to have to build an extension to the house in order to fit everyone in...
