We started out the weekend by going to the B-day party of a friend we've known for 30 years. It makes you feel old, but time flies when you're having fun! I think I've had fun.
The kids got to go and had a blast. They had a blow up thing for the kids that you jump in. They jumped for 3 hours. Guess they were a little over dressed. : - )
Then Sunday we went to our church picnic. Our kids love their church and are so lucky they have this one. This was one of the few times some of them were sitting long enough to take their picture.
Once again, the church had a blow up thing for the kids to jump in. When it rains it pours. I was afraid to let Cokie jump, since her arm is still healing (she jumped anyway). The cast is off, but it is still bruised.
I get asked some really stupid questions, as do most people who adopt. OK, so we do have a lot of kids, but Mike is an attorney and it's not like we can't afford to feed them. The other day someone asked me if the kids just get to eat one plate since groceries are getting so high. LOL! So at the picnic, my sister told the kids, "you guys are done; save some for tomorrow." In case you're reading this and still don't get the joke, trust me--we throw food out every day! : - )
It was Eliot's birthday, so we celebrated at the picnic.
Yes, my sister made Eliot's cake. She can cut hair and make cakes.
As I write this it is 1:30 am. Jeeves's brother (below) is spending the night. They are upstairs wrestling and making enough noise to wake the dead and Mike too!
Payton just got back from a mission trip to inner city Miami.
