Friday fun

I just got home about an hour ago from spending the morning with three fantastic ladies. The sixteen kids we have between us played happily. The.whole.time.

And in a few hours, I'm leaving for a sleepover! The homeschool group I'm in was supposed to be going to a conference this weekend. The conference was cancelled, and so one of the women in the group offered to host a sleepover at her house instead. FUN! We're meeting for dinner at a restaurant first. My kids will be home with Daddy watching "Horton Hears a Who". I love being married to a guy who doesn't see his time with the kids as "babysitting" and who is 100% proficient in the areas of meal prep, discipline, tooth-brushing and bedtimes. :)

Now if I can just get some housework done before it's time to leave...

Sounds fun Brianna! Have a great time. You definitely deserve it. I am sure that Kevin and the kids will have fun too.

I'm going to the same conference when it comes here in February- I wonder why she cancelled it? Anyway, the sleepover sounds like more fun!

Parent that refer to themselves as "babysitters". Um HELLO?!??! I'm so glad you don't have one of those. Have fun with the girls :)

Hi Brianna! This isn't really related to your current post. I know you read a lot, and I really admire the relationship that your children have with one another. I was just curious if you've read any books that you would recommend that talk about fostering relationships with siblings. I have two little girls (very little, 7 months and 28 months) and I want to teach them to love each other and have a good relationship, but I have no idea how to do that (I was basically an only child), or where to start on finding a good Christian based book....there are so many books out there! If you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate them!

Thanks,
Gina

I can't wait to see how the sleepover went. I hope you had a great time! I miss having a network of good friends relatively close by like that.

Stop by our new blog tomorrow for a pretty cool announcement!

(BTW, on blogger, I changed my name that shows up to Angi since there seems to be an oddly high number of Angelas out there. LOL. Feel free to call me whichever one you want.)
