Eight kids that ranged from nine to two. Things were certainly hopping around here!
I didn't think to tell the kids to bring swim clothes so we used the pool like a large water table.
Don't worry there was constant supervision. :) They had a blast! They all played here for a good hour.
After a full morning of outside play we took a break for lunch and naps for the little ones.
To keep the house quiet while the little ones settled down we watch an episode of 19 Kids and Counting and then did some puff painting.
This stuff is neat.
1 Tbs self rising flour
1 Tbs salt
1/4 tsp water
You may need to add a little more water to get correct consistency. Once the picture is complete microwave for 30 seconds and watch it puff. (The thicker the paint, the more it will puff.)
New friends were made. Eli (and Abe) both enjoyed Adelise. Maybe just a little more then she enjoyed them! ;)
We ventured back outside for some more playtime. (I feel that kids needs lots of outdoor time.)
Late afternoon we were all hot so we headed back in. The older girls headed to Megan's room.
The boys and Adelise stayed with me in the living room.
The kids were well behaved and we had such a fun day! Sweet Adelise came back and spent two days and a night with us while mom was back to the hospital. All the kids will be joining us for a day or two this week as it looks like Nicole will be having surgery. Megan is excited for her friends to return.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
