The girls have a friend over. This would be a completely happy thing if said friend wasn’t here because her house is, at this moment, being packed into a truck and everything being shipped to China, where she is moving. So sad for all of us. I mean, it’s a wonderful opportunity for her family, and they will have an amazing adventure, but we will miss them so much. Thank goodness for air mail, e-mail, and Skype.
The house is strewn with toys from a birthday/going away party we had here earlier for the same friend and 2 others who are also moving. The mess isn’t as bad as it could be, as we did a decent amount of clean up during the party. We all had a great time- 10 kids, 3 moms, tea party lunch (with actual teacups, which were the hit of lunch), 2 different kinds of cupcakes, a “little kids table” for the littles, goodie bag presents from Hong Kong… it was pretty great. These kids really do get along so well, and it’s hard to think of having to find new little ones to fill back in our little group. I’m SO glad for my friends who AREN’T moving. 🙂
It’s stinkin’ hot outside. I’m VERY thankful for a house with air conditioning.
The girls are playing with prince and princess dolls and a Mustang and Mach 5 (from Speed Racer). The prince and princess are racing. This makes me happy. 🙂
There are red velvet cupcakes sitting on my counter, asking to be eaten. My beloved Valerie (who thankfully is NOT moving) is amazing.
I’m about to go post some new things on my other blog. Have you checked it out yet?
