family in town and more VBS

this week we have been so busy.  the kids attended another vacation bible school this past week.  even adejay was allowed to participate in this one.  i think she was a year older than everyone, but her best friend was there... so fun was had!  i just had starboy to hang out with each morning from 9-noon.  that was peaceful.
otter pop's aunt, cousin, and three cousin's kids came up to visit this week.  we have been up and out from about 8am until about 8pm each and every day.  we've come home to nap for a couple hours after vbs (1-3), but that's it.  it's been nice that the house has stayed clean!  it's also been nice not to cook dinner each night!  although last night i made dinner for everyone over at our house. 
today is sleep in day, so we got up at 6:30...  that little sweet starboy is all congested and didn't sleep well.  at all.  that's a first for him.  and i'm talking about in his whole life!  geeze, besides him not sleeping well there was a LOUD LOUD thunderstorm last night.  it felt like i was living back up in the mountains again!  the thunder shook the whole house several times!!!!!!  i think that's what woke up the little star in the first place.  he came and laid in bed with us (which he never has before and there's a reason for that!)  he sleeps ALL over and kicks like he doesn't have to worry about life...  then when he woke up, he started prying otter's and my eyes open to tell us "hi!" and "out!"  and "foo!"  and "i wuv you!" 
i'm TIRED!
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

for being sick, he's still pretty darn cute. I've been hearing about the thunder that came through, never heard it. but, we kept the kids out way late (seriously, got home at like 1 am) so maybe that's why we didn't hear it. Glad Your week was fun. ;)
