sorry, I have nothing crafty to show you today. I've been far to busy playing this summer. I mentioned that my sister was staying with me this summer, but I don't think I mentioned that she has four kids.
Our life with eight kids has been crazy but so fun. Our kids are really close. My sister usually comes to stay with us twice a year, and usually for several weeks. They will be leaving this week and days of tears and depression will follow.
Here's what we've been up to:
Lots of hours at the pool. We are so lucky to have a community pool two doors down from us. A day doesn't go by that we don't spend at least an hour at the pool.
Camping. We had to cut our trip short when my youngest stepped on some hot coals from the night before. We had to run her to the ER. She's a brave one and has handled the accident better than I did.
We always spend as much time at the Lake as we can. It's our second home during the summer. In fact, we lived there for a couple summers, a few years back, while my husband worked on his masters at a neighboring college. My favorite week of the whole year is a week we spend there with family.
I especially enjoyed playing several rounds of croquette with the amazing set my dad made for Christmas.
I'm hoping to get back to reality this week and post a tutorial for the maxi dress. thanks for being patient with me.
