Mike Lewis gave a program on the life and times of raising eight children. All the first names of the children begin with the letter "M" and the middle names all begin with "T". They are Michael Truett II, Maria Theresa, Matthew Timothy, Marina Tara, Martin Thomas, Marlo Tierra, Marcella Toyha, and Meaghan Tracie. All of the children attended college and earned degrees. None of the children received a car until they were in their second year of college. All the children were in a sporting event that kept them busy, so they would not get in trouble. The parents made it to all the ballgames that their kids were involved in. Spend time with your kids is Lewis' advice to all parents. Connie and Mike now have 15 grandchildren. There are a total of 35 members of the Lewis family including mom, dad, kids, in-laws, and grandchildren.
