My stepson is all grown up now and has SIX kids of his own. Yes, they know what causes it. No, they're not Catholic. Six. Ranging in age from 1 to 10.
They have alternately lived 6 hours from us and 12 hours from us. Having just left their stomping grounds 12 hours away, they are en route to resettle in the city 6 hours from us. But before they do that, they are stopping off at stepson's mom (about 30 miles from us) for several weeks. (Stepson is overseas working.) Mom and 6 babies.
Six is a handful, but these are beautiful, loving kids, and I'm not biased at all! The 10-year-old is a boy, who thinks the sun rises and sets on his 13 and 14 year old uncles, so he spent the night with us on Saturday. I think he already has plans to come back on Friday.
This weekend was quite busy, too. Besides visiting with family, we spent several hours fundraising for scouts.
Hooray for the half dozen! Life will NOT be boring this summer!
