I love it when all the kids are home.
Actually it's not free. I have paid for it a million times. I have to make lunch for eight people every day. I can handle breakfast and dinner but lunch just stinks.
Today I'm having a hard time convincing the kids that my plans to spring clean the back yard count as an awesome break activity. I just keep repeating my favorite vacation mantra--"this is a break from school not from life."
We just got home from a trip to Wyoming to visit Jim and Heidi (Rustin's sister) and their seven awesome kids.
Our kids love each other. It is so fun to be able to turn everyone loose. The weather was perfect. Sunny with no wind. Everyone was happy and none of my kids complained a bit about cleaning up leaves from their cousins' lawn. Go figure.
This weekend Dallin discovered that he is indeed mortal. He wrecked on the motorbike.
