  • People often ask me the question, "How do you do it?" Being the father of seven kids to most people is an unimaginable situation. I can remember as a child having quietness in my home due to it being only me and my brother. Actually, the age distance kept my brother and I from not being so close until we reached adulthood. Dinner was simple back then, My mother could whip up something quickly from the scraps in the frig. Fast forward to today and dinner time has taken a whole new role. No longer can I simple look in the pantry or frig and see what I can "put together. Now I must make sure that I have bulk pacages of can goods so everyone can have enough.
