  5. The thing that surprised me most, is that you have 7 children! You really revealed some secrets here.

  6. What a fun post! I'm with Katrin.. I had no idea you have 7 kids.. that part blew me away. thanks for sharing Jenny. Have been seeing your name a lot today lol!!! (received the latest Homespun in the mail he he)

  7. Love the post. Remember, it is the journey that counts, not the destination. Especially on a bike!!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
