Springy Break

The Gang's All 1

It's amazing that all 3 of my college kids had spring break the same week even though they are at 3 different colleges. Ben brought his roommate home too, so we've had 13 in the house.  It's been a busy, fun blessing having them home.  I'm so glad they all chose to come home for break rather than travel the world.  We've still been attempting to do some homeschool but in the midst of all the craziness not much has gotten done.  And I had gotten used to "only" cooking for 9 people and half of those people rather small.  My grocery budget has gone out the window.  Yes, they are eating me out of house and home.  It's so funny how when the boys come home for break, they want to eat and eat and actually gain weight.  One batch of homemade cookies don't go very far around here right now.
So, here are a few pics of our crazy week.......

Anna's friend from college, who is originally from Malaysia, came to spend the day with us.  She wanted to experience large American family living first hand.  She even went to the grocery store with us. 

Patrick and Ben have reconnected. Now that Patrick is talking and saying their names, it's so funny.  The younger ones so enjoy the older ones around and vice verse. 

Ron took the older kids, well really all of them except the little boys and me, to the beach for a two days.  Here are my 3 precious older college kids.

And here is Ron with the was cold.  And I had a nice quiet time at home with the little boys getting some much needed things done.  It was like a "teacher workday" ; )
The little boys and I visited the neighborhood library.....I love spending time with just my little guys.

  1. What a blessing to have everyone home at the same time!! Beautiful pictures. Your daughter looks so tiny in between her two brothers at the beach! :) And your little boys are so precious. I bet they enjoyed that time at the library with their mama!


Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
