This week we are privileged to have our friends' three daughters staying with us while our friends are at summer camp with our church's youth group. The blog this week, while continuing to share our everyday life as usual, will also be a chronicling of our adventures for our friends who are far away from their girls this week! My mom did this for Bruce and I when we were away a couple of years ago and it was wonderful to get a glimpse of our kids every day.
First bedtime (last night) was a piece of cake, and everyone slept until a reasonable hour this morning with no midnight adventures! Today we all survived the painstaking process of figuring out who sits by whom at breakfast...
After lunch, they got to open the special goodie bags that our friend prepared for each day of this week. I forgot to get pictures, but they had a blast eating some gummy worms for dessert and then blowing bubbles together! (The girls each got a note from their mom and dad, too, which they loved...and the youngest, S., carried her note around for quite a while this evening, too. It looked precious all scrunched up in her chubby toddler hand!)
After goodie-bag time was pool time! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the swimtime -- and even the quick rain we got in the middle! (notice S. covering her face so she didn't get rained on...an ineffective but very cute attempt!!!) -- and we enjoyed a long, leisurely stay at the pool.
