My brother and his family are visiting this weekend. Ben has four girls, which brings the total number of children to nine. This is a large number in and of itself, but add to that the fact that the oldest child is only nine and you have yourself a veritable circus! (The exact breakdown, for the overly curious, is 9,9,8,6,5,4,3,1.5,1)
Thankfully, God has blessed us with warm weather and sunshine, so the kids have spent a good deal of time outside. The other wonderful aspect of this little adventure is that the kids get along marvelously!
Even the two youngest, Avila and Ronia, get along! They love playing in the sink together.
There was a time when Grace and Angelica didn't get along at all. But now, they love each other and spent hours turning the jungle gym into a magical fairy house.
