Can you stand another newbie?

Hi everyone! I'm Vicki from Kansas. I came here looking for new ideas for feeding my family of 12. That's right, my dh and I have 10 kids. They range in age from 5 up to 22. All are currently living at home, but our second dd is getting married in July, and the oldest dd is making sounds like she may move out soon, so the numbers may shift a little. Anyway, we're all stuck in food rut, and need new ideas. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

We not only can stand them, we welcome them. With as much cooking as you must do, you can probably teach us a thing or two. Glad you came.

Welcome Vicki.

Have fun. This is the best forum on the 'net!

Does your name indicate that you're a teacher, or how did you come up with it?

We homeschool, but I found the word back when my oldest two girls were tiny. I love to read, and having taught a few kids to read, I love a word who's meaning is so connected to the way it sounds..an abecedarian is a beginning student of the alphabet, or letters

(GB, we really need a wink here, I could relly use one right now)

Hey welcome. And here I thought I had a lot of kids, 5; the oldest is 20, well wil be 20 next week, the yongest is 2. Of course if my wife did not have problem getting pregnant we'd probably have 10 or 12 kids by now, but it's G-ds desision, not ours. Good luck.
