A Day In the Life.

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.
