And Then There Were 5

For 2 1/2 weeks I had the pleasure of having 5 kids instead of 3. My new clan included two 8 year olds girls, a 5 year old girl, a 4 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. We kepts busy, had lots of fun and enjoyed each other completely!
My two nieces - Abby and Ruby - were left behind when their parents headed back to ND after their visit here. It was such a treat for Madison and Isaac to have built in playmates day after day. I also enjoyed the extra activity - it kept me organized and scheduled (believe it or not). I found that having more to manage forced me to always be prepared and ready each step of the way. Hmmm . . . maybe I found a long term solution to things getting out of order and control - have more kids :-)

Nothing like fun with cousins :)! So remember when we were talking about your sister Nicole's husband's mom (Drew) working for the paper in Spearfish? I just found out that SHE is the one that I interviewed with 2 years ago when I was moving out here and looking for a job. She was SO sweet and had me bring Cayel into the interview with me. She had a couple of her employees "babysit" while we visited and got to know each other. Heck, she even offered me a job :)! Small world uh? You should make a trip back this way sometime when you sister and brother-in-law come . . . One more excuse :)!

I think having more kids is a great idea! As cute as your kids are and as good as a mother you are, you should have a dozen!!! :)
