A large family, homeschooling, adoption, special needs, whatever strikes my fancy, sort of blog.

Our Week with Little Visitors
Our Little Friends from last year and the year before are staying with us again.
Last week the hair was green... now it's purple!
It's actually really pretty; variegated with bits of different colors to it.
Brianna talked me into buying a piece of army fleece last time we were at JoAnn's. I finally cut the selvages off so she could use it as a blanket.
Hannah brought home a Nevada library book from our trip. I had to explain why that was a bad idea. Will be mailing that back.
Lots of playing in the playroom this week. It's always fun to have new kids in the house and see all the "forgotten" toys regain popularity.
I'm so grateful Grammy brings us boxes of toothbrushes. It leaves us prepared for the unexpected. Like when Brayden stayed over last week, or with our special guests. I never have to run out and pick up a spare toothbrush at bedtime.
I took Brianna, Eli, and a friend of Eli's to Color Me Mine this week. E and friend made mugs.
I made a plate.
Brianna made an adorable tea set with trees from the movie The Lorax.
We went to the park to burn off some energy. Sorry, no picture of Hannah. There were little blondies in all the shots I took of her, and I'm too lazy to edit in my very limited computer time.
We need to come back when the library is open. They have weird hours. No books this week.
Hannah and Katie mostly watched Kai Lan and Barbie in Mandarin when they were first home, so it's been many years since I've watched Dora. Jack liked it when he was a wee tyke. Well, Dora makes good after bath watching for the littles so I can comb out their wet hair.
Katie and the small fries in a rousing game of ring around the rosies.
We're off to Shriners this coming week, plus a couple of dentist appointments for Brianna and Eli, plus picking up our finished ceramics from Color Me Mine. Hopefully we'll manage a trip to the library and maybe even the pool, as well.
