Trying to keep 8 kids entertained during the summer is no small feat...everyone has their own idea about what to do to for fun.
We are just taking it one day at a time and hoping that somehow, everyone feels their own little bit of happiness for a moment or two.
Yesterday, we went to the fountains.
|The boys were highly entertained.|
|They seemed to think that water shooting up out of the ground was pretty exciting.|
|The girls, however, were happy just watching and chatting...|
|Alyssa braved the water for a few minutes here and there.|
|The boys also loved the park right next to the fountains.|
Where Alyssa was more than happy to keep the swings moving.
|Afterwards, we had a little bit of ice cream and headed home.|
Even though at times it's chaotic, busy, stressful, and crazy, I can't help but just feel joy as I listen to the sounds
of all these cousins just being together.
It's a pretty wonderful noise.
