    Decided to stay in Charleston Sc and moved into a three bedroom historic charmer

    Year 1: A few months after being married I start to not feel well. We go to the doctor and are shocked to learn that we are 1 month pregnant with twin girls ! We are over the moon happy! They come into this world healthy and beautiful in May 2015. We name them
    Indie Eloise Walker and Pip Magnolia Walker.

    Year 2: In the middle of August a hurricane hits Charleston,Sc. The town is devastated by disaster. Thankfully our house wasn't hit too bad and the family is safe. For the next 4 months. we move into my parents house while we fix the damage and add an addition onto the house so we can expand our family.

    Year 3: After living in our improved larger house for 5 months its starting to feel empty. We talk and decide to try for another baby. 9 months later we are thrilled to be blessed with with boy/girl twins born in February 2017. We name them Gideon Dune Walker and
    Scout Clementine Walker.

    Year 4: We are loving being a family of 6! Indie and Pip are now 3 so they start preschool. Grant quit his old job, which he hated, and opened up an old fashion Ice Cream Parlor in downtown Charleston,Sc. Business has been booming and it was the best decision he ever made!

    Year 5: Here it is, another surprise pregnancy! It's a beautiful baby boy born in April 2019. We name him Dempsey Reed Walker

    Year 6: One night we unexpectedly get a call from Grant's Aunt. His best friend/cousin, Beau, died unexpectedly from a sudden heart attack. Since the kids mother walked out on them. Beau states in his will that he would want us to raise his three children if anything ever happened to him . And so we do. We adopt Beau's three kids and finish raising them as our own. There is Lola(8), Royce(5),and Beatrice "Bea"(2)

    Year 7: Life is busy with 8 kids! 4 are in grade school, 3 in preschool and 1 that's still home with me. It sure is hectic, but worth it! They bring us so much fun and joy! The Ice Cream Parlor has really taken off and is gathering fans from all over. Even Rachel Ray invited us onto her talk show in nyc to discuss the shop and our lives! It was an amazing experience and really elevated the business!

    Year 8: In a turn of events Grant sells the Ice Cream Parlor for a great profit and takes a job offer in London,England. We buy a 5 bedroom townhouse with a quaint backyard. We love the area and living in the city!

    Year 9: We are really enjoying London life and are all settled in and decided to adopt an exotic shorthair kitten named Pansy.

    Year 10: With all the kids being in school, I decide to open up a bookstore in London. I call it "Lulie's Books". The response is overwhelmingly positive from customers , to my family members, It's been great! My favorite part about owning the store is that every Tuesday afternoon the kids from all around town come for story time! It's truly a magical place.

    Year 11: My dear friend, Elizabeth, who also works with me. Welcomes her first baby girl named Haddie Jade.

    Year 12: The kids are all doing great! Lola is in 9th grade. Indie,Pip and Royce are in 6th grade. Gideon and Scout are in 4th grade. Bea is in 3rd grade and Dempsey is in 2nd. They all are doing well in school and are enjoying their after school hobbies. Lola and Indie both do Ballet. Pip is in the theater group at school . Royce and Gideon play soccer. Scout loves to paint. Bea loves to garden with me and Dempsey is a bookworm. One day when we are walking home from school we spot two abandoned kittens. We take them home and the kids help me nurture them back to health. Our 3 year old cat Pansy steps in as their mother and we name them Flora and Dill.

    Year 13: Our neighbors the Kentens, Phoebe and Henry, welcome their first child a pretty baby girl name
    Amelia Rose Kenten. Lola loves to babysit and all the kids love when we are invited to go to the park to play with Amelia.

    Year 14: Sadly my grandmother passes on after living a fulfilled life. We are all deeply saddened to learn the news. I was very close to her and we loved going shopping together. In her will she leaves us 5,000 dollars. We are shocked to learn this. My grandmother always wanted to visit Australia. So we take that money and go on a dream vacation with the kids all around Australia. It's was a once in a lifetime experience!

    Year 15: Our closest friends die in a tragic helicopter accident. We can't get over the shock and grief! Left behind is their 3 year old son Ollie Jack. They have no other family members alive and chose us to be the legal guardians if anything ever happened. We welcome Ollie into our family and try to make the adjustment for him as easy as possible.

    Year 16: Lola is in her first year in college. She gets a full scholarship to the best local dance school here in London! We couldn't be more proud!! Indie, Pip and Royce are now in 10th grade. Gideon and Scout are now in 8th grade. Bea is in 7th grade and Dempsey is in 6th. Ollie is now 4 and is in preschool. Grant is thriving at his job and my book store is still doing great! Ollie loves the book store. Its really has helped him heal from the loss of his parents and he is now finally accepting us as his new family. At the end of the year we go off to a mission trip to Africa with our church. It was a life changing experience! I am so happy the kids got to experience that and make them realize how blessed they are and to distill in them the need to help others. At the end of our trip we visit an orphanage. Our heats break seeing these beautiful children without a loving home. So we decide to adopt two sisters who were so in need of help. Their is Zindzi "Zinny" who is 5 and Ada who is 1. They are beautiful and bond to us right away.

    Year 17: The girls are settling in nicely to London life, it's been a drastic change for them, but they love it! My sister ,Clara, is pregnant with her 4th child. She is having a rough pregnancy and has some complications. She delivers her baby boy Jude Theodore 4 weeks early. Thankfully although he is early, he is healthy and is doing fine. He does stay a little while in the hospital to be monitored to make sure he's doing good. When Jude is 8 months they come to visit us in England! The come and stay 2 months during the summer! It's wonderful having them here! The kids love having their cousins around and I love chatching up with my sister! It's been fantastic!

    Year 18: My sisters family absolutely loved being in London with us. So much so that they decided to move here! Clara's husband works online which means they can live anywhere. Im thrilled they choose to live here and even more thrilled when I hear they convinced my parents to come over too! I'm so exited to have my whole family living in one place again! My sister bought a cute cottage in the suburbs which is perfect for them and my parents found a charming little apartment just a couple blocks from where we live. It's been such a blessing having them here! My patents and sister love being apart of the kids lives! I couldn't be any more happy. It's perfect!

    Year 19: Lola is now in her 4th year of college while Indie and Royce are just heading out for their first year. Pip is delaying college for a few years because she's landed a main role in a famous London musical. We are so thrilled for her! Indie is studying journalism and Royce is studying law. We couldn't be more proud of all of them! They are all so driven and focused on their careers, it's amazing! With my oldest 4 out of the house I start to miss them and decide I need a change. So I dye my hair an auburn shade with no one knowing! It was a freeing and fun experience. Thankfully everyone likes the new color and I feel rejuvenated.

    Year 20: With Lola now out into the real world performing with the London Ballet Company and my littlest one in grade school I am starting to feel very old at the age of 43. But luckily I still have a full house of beautiful kids to come home too and to keep me company. Grant and I finally cave into getting a dog for the kids. We went to the local rescue and fell in love with a Great Dane named Honey and a Bulldog named Roo. We couldn't decide between the two of them. And since both were so bonded to each other. We came home with 2 dogs that day.

    What a 20 years it has been! Full of love, happiness, joy but also some hard times. Me and Grant are blessed to raise 11 fantastic children!

    Here's our family. Me+Grant= Lola, Indie, Pip, Royce, Gideon, Scout, Bea, Dempsey, Zinny, Ollie and Ada <3
