Once upon a time (in 1999) Doc and I were newly married and fresh back from our honeymoon.
We packed up all our belongings in a Uhaul and headed for Muncie, Indiana. Doc was beginning his 3 years of residency and I was along for the ride. Little did we know as we arrived at our little townhouse...
That we would gain a whole new extended family...we joke that they are the family we got to choose!
Now, I don't remember how it all started but there were four of us couples who half jokingly made a pact that we would all have babies within a year of each other...that way all our kids could be friends. Turns out, it really happened. And four little ones were born the third year of residency to our little extended family...the "pact" babies!
Then a couple years later, round 2 came along and followed in suit all being born within a year of each other again. Then the two babies from round 3 were born a couple of years after that.
This past year has brought three new little ones for round 4...
if you are trying to keep count, that is 13 children all together. So can you imagine how fun it is every summer when we get together and watch our kids play together and love each other just as much as family should! It is a blessing beyond my imagination to have this group of people in my life. Thanks for being a part of our family, you guys!!!!
