Good Morning Company Girls! Come on in. This morning I can offer you milk, Soda, and powdered or chocolate doughnuts. We are going out of town in a couple of hours so the cupboards have dwindled down to nothing!
It has been a relaxing week in the Tigerden! We have been ENJOYING the first week of summer vacation and the first week of sunshine tremendously! We have "forgotten" mommy's pledge to continue reading and math all summer in lue of going outside and breathing the fresh air and basking in the warm weather! All too soon it will pass and we will be lamenting the pounding rays of the sun, so we are taking full advantage while we can!
Yesterday was SO busy as I had eight, yes eight children at the house, dance lessons, a ball game and packing up for the weekend away! HOWEVER, our air conditioner was FINALLY fixed yesterday and for the first time in three weeks we all slept in our own rooms in our own beds. It was glorious! Now, I did learn a little through this experience. I have often seen pictures of crowded foreign countries where two or three families live in one tiny apartment and wondered how it was even possible. Well, after three weeks of two adults, 3 children and 1 toddler in a pack and play all sleeping in one 10'x10' room, I think we could do it. At least for awhile. Don't get me wrong, I much prefer NOT stepping on three or for limbs when I get up to "use the facilities" at night...but now I know I could. If I had to. Which I no longer do. Praise God!
In a couple of hours, we will head out for a long weekend in LA with Tigerfan's family. Lots of good food, good fellowship and hopefully more good weather. Hope everyone has a glorious holiday weekend! Be Safe!
