  1. You guys, it’s called “7 Little Johnsons” ~ that includes Amber – the mother.

    As you can see, Anna’s light” has shown bright in spite of anything “others ” may believe is going in the family. Yes Emma is a brat, what’s new? With 5 kids sometimes it may seem someone gets more attention than someone else….

    I congratulate Amber for going back to school- for whatever “her” reason.
