Rosfeld family update

Things have been quiet on the blogging front for the last few years. As I hope to ease back into posting regularly,  I thought you might like a little update about what’s been going on with our family.

In a nutshell, life is busy. Life with 7 boys is busy. Life homeschooling 7 boys, raising goats and chickens, and working full time is busy. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our boys are 15, 13, 9,7,4 (almost 5), 3, and 16 months. There is always something going on here! I recently had the opportunity for all of them to visit Grandma’s house for a day while I worked. It was harder than I expected to concentrate without the normal background noise I’m used to.

This last week we had our 20 week sonogram for baby #8. The boys were excited to find out the gender of this little one. A couple of the boys have been wishing for a sister and a couple of them were really hoping for another boy.

They wanted to do egg roulette as a gender reveal. If you’re not familiar with the concept, we boiled 17 eggs and left 1 raw. We dyed half the eggs blue and half pink. The color of the raw egg represented the gender of the baby. Then each boy took a turn smashing the egg on his head to see who got the ‘lucky’ egg.

Here’s the video we shot of the gender reveal…this is truly what’s it is like to live at our house. 🙂 Enjoy!

  3. The pink football helmet powerpoint at church was a hit! Some got it right away and some just stared….I think they were in shock :-D. Congratulations on your eighth, of course, and have you ever picked out a girl’s name ;-)?

  4. That was a fun way to do a gender reveal!
    Congratulations for baby #8 and for finally having a girl! Your household is very busy! And you homeschool all of your children! Kudos to you! You both are wonderful parents and not everyone could do all you do. From an outsider, you make it look easy! But, I know that your love of the Lord is one of the keys to being as successful as you are! I am in “awe” (sp) of both of you as parents! I can only dream of a life as rewarding yours! Blessings to you and everyone in your family!

  5. CONGRATULATIONS to your family on the new little girl expected!! we are excited to see what a girl Rosfeld looks like! of course there is Sheri, Kristi, or Julie that she COULD look like!!!!
