A Part of Me

Sweater: RW&Co, Jeans: Forever21, Socks: Joe Fresh, Boots: Nautralizer

When my whole family goes to town, it's really interesting to hear all of the reactions of the people that see us all. 
The two things that are usually said to my parents are...

"Wow! That is so neat to see! You never see that now a days!"

or it's, 

"Are you nuts! That's just wrong" etc...

I love having a big family. I wouldn't change that for the world. 
So many people just don't understand how awesome it is.
Don't get me wrong, there are times when having my things stolen, broken, and/or lost can be frustrating, but it pales in comparison to the joys of being the oldest of a big family. 
The joys like your little 1 year old brother running up to you for a hug, or your little sister asking you to pick out her clothes for the day or do her hair, or having a little brother ask you to kiss his boo boo better...
I could go on :)
I am SO thankful that God has put me in the place I am.
It's, to put it mildly...
