The kids are having one massive playdate today. They each invited a friend over and so I'm currently preparing bagel bites for 8 children. I had to honor playdate promises I'd been putting off all summer and since we start back to school next week- it was time! It's so funny to see how the different ages and genders play together.
One of the fun purchases we made this summer was one of those water slides with the blowers. The kids have had lots of fun keeping cool while playing outside- and I love mopping up the puddles from the door to the potty. It makes for fun days.
Last weekend we decided to finally try the free Science and History museums in downtown Raleigh. They were so fun- especially the Science one. I can't believe that we hadn't been there before- they were so nice, and so free! The biggest hit for our family was definitely the butterfly room- Lizzy had a massive butterfly land on her dress, and we all enjoyed watching her facial expressions. Lily announced that she wants a seahorse for her birthday after I drug her away from the seahorse tank crying.
We continue to covet your prayers as we wait and pray.
