We often get asked about the size of our family, from cute sayings to funny looks. The best one that I can remember is that when I was explaining why we are called "The Country Kids", I told the lady we had 9 children. She looked at me and said, "On purpose???" Yes,my husband and I have been married 21 + years and they were all on purpose. We are now up to 12 children, 7 girls and 5 boys.
