What's it About?

Large family life is wonderful. While it does pose it's particular challenges, it has lots of rewards...and lots of laundry. This blog is a place where large families can showcase, in pictures, many of the aspects of their day-to-day lives. A pictures is worth a 1000 words, and what better way to give others a glimpse into our unique lives than with photos!

For over a year, I have been wanting to start a section of LotOfKids.com featuring pictures of large family life. Like most people, I am fascinated looking into the lives of others. I realized that as a mother of 8 children, many would love to take a peek into my life--or any other large family for that matter. It's the reason why series like "Kids by the Dozen" are popular, and why more and more large families are being featured in the media.

I had grappled with several ideas on how I could do this project, including photo galleries and online books, then decided that a photo blog would be the best format for this endeavor. So, below you will find snapshots into the lives of those with lots of kids. Some will feature the good, some the bad, some the beautiful, and some the ugly. But all will show the unique and wonderful make-up that is called a large family.

Updated 4/30/09: We've had a rough few months with project and extended illness. We have had several submissions of picture to this blog and will be posting them over the next couple of weeks! Be sure to check back...or add us to your follow-list!
