there have been 9 kids at the escobar house the past 6 days! we’ve been watching our friends 4 kiddos while they are in central america on a ministry networking trip. it is pretty funny because honestly, once you tip over the edge like we have with 5 of our own, throwing a few more into the mix isn’t that big of a deal. you hardly even notice. my twins are 8, though, so it’s been a while since i’ve had to think about sippy cups and diapers and naps and the ridiculously short hours of preschool where 1/2 of the time is just spent driving back and forth. the whole thing has been pretty fun, actually, really good sitcom material, trust me. i am thankful for flexible kids who are used to fending for themselves, gogurts, burger king drive-thrus, refuge friends who don’t mind meeting at chick-fil-a playplaces, and my fantabulous partner-in-the-craziness husband jose who equally shares the load of running the escobar household no matter how many kids are in it with style & grace.
it was a great week, it’s going to feel pretty quiet around here now, ha!
