Today we had three young girls over to visit. It was so much fun to have girls around! They are so full of contrasts to my boys, as many of you might agree if you have children. While the boys made rude sounds at lunch, the girls neatly ate their food and conversed with me. While the 4 year-old built things, the boys destroyed. It was amazing to see the contrasts in them!
I was extremely proud of our Jameson. He chose to let the girls and JJ give the goat babies their bottles since we were short one and someone wasn’t going to get a turn. He offered his to the girls, and said it would be good for them to feed the babies since they don’t have any of their own! He was so proud when showing off the little ones, especially the little buckling we recently bought. I couldn’t be more proud of our boy!
It was neat to be followed around doing chores by a little girl who wanted to try everything I did. My children love to help me, but they do this stuff every day, so the excitement and fresh perspective was fun for me. We spent time outside, and then came in to have a snack and bake cupcakes.
We had a wonderful time reading stories and talking about them, then put in Peter Pan for a movie rest-time. I just can’t describe the joy in the day, nor the sheer exhaustion of having that many kids all day! I told my husband I must be getting old to be so tired when I used to watch far more children 24/7, and he agreed, hahaha! In any case, I loved every minute of the day. What a blessing these children are, and what a gift to spend time with all of them and have a fun school day with our boys.
