So last night I had six kids. SIX. Two more than usual. What was I thinking?
My two oldest wanted my two cousins to come stay the night. So in a brief moment of insanity I said yes. Oh boy!
The evening started it well enough. We arrived home and they all helped unload the groceries from the truck. They played. I even took them outside for a bit. For supper we made homemade pizzas. They loved it. I divided them between boys and girls so it was easier on my poor oven.
After supper, everyone wound down. Got baths and started calming down. I got the babies to sleep and the older kids stayed up until midnight!
After everyone was asleep it was peaceful. Until 7 am anyway. Now the whole house is back up and I have some very strong coffee in hand.
Pray for me.
