Here are a few pictures from our day today.
The is Danil and Ray. They are all dressed for church, but neither have had their hair fixed.
They were sitting on the chair all snuggled up, so I just had to take a picture.
I know that there are a few of you who have asked how I get six kids out the door and to church on time(more than half the time by myself, due to Josh being a shift worker).
Here is how I do it:
After breakfast all kiddos get dressed for church. Everyone except Kellen can pretty much dress themselves, so I just lay out their clothes.
Once they are fully dressed, except for having their hair fixed, I usually turn on a movie and everyone sits down to watch it(except for that baby, of course).
While they are watching the movie I drink coffee, get dressed, make up, hair, the works.
About ten minutes before it is time to leave I fix everyone's hair. ALL my kids will waller(yes, waller is a word) around and mess up their hair if I allow them enough time to do so. So I fix each one's hair, and then they sit in the middle of the floor(so that they can't roll around on the couch and mess it up) until it is time to load up.
So there. That's how I do it.
It isn't hard once I figured out a system that worked for everybody.
Church was great this morning. I really was ministered to. I know that isn't necessarily what going to church is about, but today I needed it.
After church we went to my mom's for lunch. My mom lives about, eh, 100 yards from my grandparents(her parents), so after chuch we went over there for a swim. The kids loved it, as always.
By the time we got home from swimming it was too late for naps. You know the whole, if you nap 'em too late in the day they'll never go to bed thing? After we got home Daddy prepared a little surprise for the kids.
