We are having company this weekend. Our friends who happen to have ten kids are coming down for a visit. Can you believe that soon we will have 27 kids in our house? I shudder to think. ;) Anyway, I went to Costco with a few of the kids, one of them being Paul. As I rattled off things I needed to get so Julia can write them down, Paul spoke up and said we needed mustard. I smiled ear to ear because this is such a huge thing for Paul. For one he is very soft spoken. And two, it takes a lot to get him to speak up about anything. I loved how he took the initiative to make sure I didn't forget the mustard. After shopping and loading up the van, Anastasia hopped into the front seat right on top of one of her sister's MP3 players. That sister went to open the front door to find Anastasia there. A little annoyed, she asked for her music and went and sat in the back. Anastasia looking clueless, I seized the moment to tell her that when she sees something like an MP3 player or purse or book sitting on the seat, it usually means that the seat is saved. I think she gets it.
Our phones stopped working today so I had to go and buy new ones. They were old and on their last legs anyway, but who knew they would just stop working. Caleb wanted to drive and it was the perfect opportunity to spend some one on one time with him. Afterwards, we stopped by a restaurant that had a help wanted sign in the window and Caleb got an application. It would be awesome if he gets a job because he really wants to work.
We are enjoying the cooler weather. We have no big plans for the weekend other than hanging out with friends. Any of you doing anything special this three day weekend?
