Today is a day we can mark down in the history books for sure. I think it is probably one of many to come in the future as one by one, our kids grow up.
We're childless tonight. The two oldest are in another city doing work for a property management company as they get ready for college students moving in. The third one is at high school summer camp. And the youngest... is spending the third night in a row at Grammas house. (She is so. addicted. to staying overnight at Grammas).
So, I'm begging my husband to take me out to eat (even though it's the end of the month and the budget is thin).
I guess it's a night of freedom considering what is coming.....
Tomorrow night begins two weeks of challenge...to see what we're made of. :)
Two very dear friends of ours are going on a missions trip to Bulgaria. And we are watching their five (yes, you read that right... I said 5) kids while they are gone for two weeks.
It's actually not totally two weeks. We have a few days break where their gramma is coming to get them because we have an anniversary trip planned to Michigan.
We are actually very excited about it. The kids are adorable and fun - and we are so. up for it!
Our girls get back this weekend, so all together, we will have 9 kids in our house. Eight is Enough eat your heart out. (okay, so 2 of them are adults and 1 is a teenager). But, even so, six of them are under the age of 9.
We can so. do. this. I'm looking forward to it. I have fun things planned out each day. (you know, as fun as it can be considering the numbers) I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try the pool but I did order a new suit so I can consider that as an option. But, library, bowling alley, kids kingdom, park, beware.... we're coming!
