Oh, and we managed to squeeze in a friend's 4th birthday party that afternoon before hand. That means we compounded the lack of sleep with too much sugar, traveling for around an hour, more of the too much sugar and junk, lots of fun and fellowship, and then another hour car ride home. I carried four sleeping beauties in to bed on Saturday night way past bedtime and dropped them without brushing their teeth or even changing their dirty clothes! Nobody even blinked or rolled over.
Perhaps that was a little Mother's Day gift to me because the behavior that I got out of the girls the following day was exactly what I expected.... BAD! Happy Mother's Day to me. We always have a great time when we visit the church campers. The girls beg to stay.
I understand the draw.... there are lots of kiddos and no shortage of fun. There are friends and cousins, and friends who are cousins.... aren't we blessed?
