Hi, we’re the Smoot family. Welcome to our blog!
It may seem a little weird that we introduced ourselves as one unit but that’s really how we are. Although this blog is run mainly by wife Jo and myself (I’m Mike by the way), you may occasionally come across posts written by our teenage kids, Keira (15) and Jacob (13). We also have younger children, Janna who is 8 years old and Trish who is 5.
The reason why we decided to create this blog is so we could share our stories as a family to the rest of the world. When we had Jacob, we really didn’t think we were going to have another child. But by some miracle, my wife got pregnant with Janna and again with Trish a few years after. It’s hard having kids of different age groups in one house. This is even more true now that we already have two teenagers.
However, we are managing to overcome our obstacles as a whole and that’s what we would like to share with you all – stories of how we are able to meet challenges head on. Aside from that, we will also be writing about our daily lives, our interests and hobbies, as well as stories about our trips abroad. From time to time, you will also see posts about books and movies we love or hate.
Our goal is to be able to help other large families like us by sharing real life experiences through our blog.
