Blood is thicker than water, but LOVE is honey!

What a great day!  It started off a little less.....I made an oops.  Shoulda, woulda, coulda, but didn't realize.

  We signed up for swim lessons like forever ago and they were supposed to start today.  So my nephew is spending the first session of swim lessons with us (2weeks).  So his dad brought him down early this am to be here in time.  So we get all the kids swim suited, glopped with sunscreen, and in the van.  Even a few minutes early. We turn the bend to the pool and its desolate.  Uh oh....... 

Long story short public school is still in session so they postponed classes.  So now I have 3 little ones who are all geared up to swim and no where to go.  Thanks to my paramedic mind set of thinking on the fly.....plan B!

So we all go straight to the evil empire (Wal-Mart for those who don't know me).  Purchase a slip and slide and a quickie through Mcd's (super mom food).  We are trying desperately to not spend money...... but $40 later, happy kids minus the happy meal.  At one point we had 9 kids here!

Our good friend Audrey brought her kiddos over too.  We all had an awesome dinner of marinated chicken breasts on the grill, grilled zucchini, and cheesy potatoes.  If only Jeremiah was here......

I love having company!!!!!  I'm not the type of hostess that has pretty napkins and place mats.  Just a home and family environment to enjoy.  To me family is whoever is near.  Some of my closest "family members" are not related in any way shape or form.  But, they are my family. 

Thank you to all my "family."  God couldn't have given me a better one.  I just can't wait to get our kids home! 

So let's get that fund up to $20,000.  I'm gonna scare people being bald. Sigh-the things we do for our kids
