Arrgghhh! I got these pictures loaded this morning and decided I didn't have time to add the text, so I *thought* I saved them to draft. Except...apparently Blogger decided to publish them instead. ;-) So...apologies to anyone who popped in today and wondered what on earth these crazy pictures were all about!
I've had a couple of conversations lately about the ups and downs of having *big kids* all of the sudden, instead of *littles*. It seems like it happened almost overnight! I miss having little ones in many ways, but there are things that are really nice about having a bigger crew. One is that when mom isn't feeling well, instead of my worrying about how I am going to take care of *them*, they are not only able to take care of *themselves* (well, mostly ;-)), but they are really sweet to help take care of *mom*.
Yesterday was one of those days. We did school from the couch, and even on mom's bed for a while, and then mom had to have a nap. Peter and Bayley had offered to fix lunch, so I rested and read while they got everyone fed, and then they had free time while I slept a bit. When I woke up, they had quite a surprise...a *show* just for me! I'm not quite sure where they came up with this tradition, but as long as I can remember, when someone isn't feeling well, those who are still up and going put together a *show* for the sick.
What a crew!
This show was a blend of an old western and Star Wars....Cowboys in Space, or something like that. :-D
Miss Prim and Proper, even on her horse...
These two kept me in stitches!
Look closely...can you see that Gracie has her sword down the back of her shirt? :-D
Ride 'Em, Cowgirl!
The girls see something in the tent...
It's Indian Pete!
What a way to be cheered up on a dreary day! I love these creative kiddoes!
