I sure have been enjoying my Big Kids and Adopted Big Kids this past week ...
Friday afternoon ... Adopted Big Kid Kati came out to the island for the day, to help pack, clean, and fill her car with boxes for the trip home.
Friday evening ... Adopted Big Kid Jared came out to the island to load up his pickup truck with all of the "Big Stuff" ... the bookshelves, mattresses, computer chair, etc...
Friday night ... WONDERFUL late night chat with Jeremiah. Oh how I have missed those midnight chats with my Big Kids!
Saturday afternoon ... Lindsey and a friend stopped by to play with the kids for a bit. Yea for Big Sis!!!
Monday morning & afternoon ... a fun visit by one of our Adopted Young Families. (yes ... we have those, too) Sarah and the kids came over for a coffee date / play date. What fun! Sarah has a new little foster baby in her home. It's been quite a while since I've held a baby. (but ... I remembered how) Sarah's kids, J. (age 4) and K. (age 3) were so excited to play with my kids. So precious! The weather was nice, and we had a picnic in the backyard. Fun!
Monday evening ... the young ones and I enjoyed a visit to the ballpark to watch Jeremiah's softball game.
Tuesday ... a quiet day with no Big Kids ... those are good once in awhile ...
Wednesday afternoon ... Lindsey stopped by and decided that she wanted to make pizza for dinner with the kids (after playing a few games). Too fun!!!
Wednesday evening ... got the phone call that the realtor was coming today ... texted a few Big Kids to tell them ... Josh texted right back and said, "I'm talking to Hannah. Do you want her to come help clean house?" Of course! Hannah showed up about 7:30 ... I sent her to the vacuum closet. Then, about 8:00 Kati "stopped by". I showed her the boxes and the empty bookshelf. The 3 of us worked until about 9:00. Then, we sent the young ones off to bed and we had a Girl's Night Coffee Date. So fun! Chatting with two of my Adopted Big Girls for almost 2 hours across the kitchen counter. Awww ... makes this Mama's heart glad!!!
