...decided that she wanted ALL of her grand kids to come and visit for a week...ALL at the same time.
My step-dad Joe was also on board with this idea.
and Tessa, 2 1/2 years old
~going to the water park like a zillion times
~ five pee accidents in one day (all the same kid)
~ going bowling
~ going to bed late
~ getting up early
~ water balloon fights
~ going to the library
~ getting all seven kids and four adults ready for church. Thank heavens it was at 1pm.
~going to four parks in one day!
~ every mealtime had a highlight and a low light. Trying to keep track of who likes what and who doesn't was enough to make your head spin.
~ coloring pictures, piano practice, homework etc...
The girls had a great time and we got a few days without kids.
Thanks mom and Joe for being such wonderful and hands on grandparents. I know it wasn't a vacation for you by any means, but to the girls it will be the highlight of their summer.
*On a side note...I had great hopes of starting and finishing the nursery in the five days we were without children....wishful thinking. I just barely finished painting. What I realized was that in order to make a nursery I had to completely lose my sewing/craft room. That is A LOT of stuff to find storage for. It had to be located in a semi convenient place and to create that was no easy task. So here we are two and a half weeks later and we are finally making some progress. Which is why I haven't been able to blog that often. Stayed tuned for the finished project.
