Yumm.....


On Sunday we all loaded up and went to church. The kids have been so bored, and dying to go ANYWHERE. All of the books and experts suggest you cocoon at home with the kids for at least a few weeks. They all begged to go to church, what are you gonna do, say no? Every single one walked right into class and had a blast. In service, the Pastor surprised us by calling us up and praying for us at the end of service. Elias just grinned from ear to ear. Beatrice was a little shy, but they all handled it like champs. After church they took naps, then we made caramel apples, dipped in chocolate chips, sprinkles or Heath Bar. All that junk is ok as long as you eat it with apples, right? It was a really good day and felt manageable and normal really. Normal feels really good right about now! Now we are off to the first of the new kids Doctors appointments to get up to date on shots etc. for school. They are itching to go, they beg every day!! To go to school, that is, not the Dr.!! I'll be flying solo with 6 little ones at the appt.... wish me luck!!

Oh my goodness! I can't imagine your doctors appt. I hope it went well! I LOVED seeing the picture of all your kids together! You need to post more of them at home, now that they are feeling better. It is so much fun to see their beautiful faces filled with joy. How great that you already went out, I think I will go crazy if my kids feel the need to be "cocooned".
