Meet the Family





Mom & Dad

Obie -  My hard-working husband. He's ambitious, affectionate, dedicated, and has a great sense of humor. He loves his seven kids and his job, traveling around the US working with teachers. When he does have "down time," he enjoys reading & video games. I thank God for leading me to him!

Becky - The "mind" behind this blog.  After teaching math to teenagers for a decade, I'm currently a SAHM. Years of managing classroom have helped me manage our "large" family. There's a lot of planning, and sometimes life gets messy. So if you stop by unexpectedly, please don't judge. 😉

#1 B - Teen phenom and "veteran" of our growing group of children.  The perfect mix of  handsome, mature, compassionate, & hard-working. At 18 years of age, he has surpassed his mother's and father's height.  He hopes to be the next Mark Cuban and, so far, is our best shot at a comfortable retirement.  He enjoys acting, cross country, and spending time with his "lady friend".  He's also a fantastic "Daddy Sub" when Daddy is out of town. Working through his senior of high school - he proves time flies!!

#2 A - The princess who thinks she's the queen tips in at a whopping 11 years old.  Being our oldest girl, she is definitely mommy #2. She loves directing her little siblings around. Super smart, competitive, avid reader, and creative extraordinaire. Now she's ruling the world this year as a big 5th grader!
#3 P - The blondest member of the crew, this 7 year-old is definitely the most soft-hearted. So sweet, kind, & mellow and totally what we call a "lap child".  He loves reading, organized sports, and tagging along after his older sister. We sometimes think that he loves Daddy's iPad more than us.

#4 S - The kindergarten member of the Martin Clan, this 5-year-old is also the most vocal!  Resilient & intelligent. After spending the first 2.5 years of his life in a Chinese orphanage, he joined our family in the summer of 2014. He has the biggest smile! Not only is he a VERY willing helper, he may be the only child that does things the first time that he's asked.

#5 M - The toddler member of the Martin Bunch, this little lady is bound and determined to stand out! From her super, crazy quick entrance into the world (2 weeks early, 20 minutes, & breech! OMG!) to her entertaining dance performances and loud toddler gibberish, she definitely keeps us on our toes! Every family of seven needs their challenging child...we've got Moo.

#6 DK - DK joined us through domestic adoption in the Spring of 2016. He has proven to us that good sleepers do exist!! We call him "Big Man" because everything he does is BIG! From his smiles to his poops, this guy doesn't do small.







#7 L - Lucky #7! Our brand new little one is mostly sweet & laid-back. Her older siblings are enjoying loving on her! Being EXACTLY 10 months younger than DK, I have a feeling these two will be very close!
