Granny's House was alive
with grandchildren at 6:20 this morning! Six young 'uns, ten and under, arrived at my door in various stages of dress and wakefulness, ready to spend the day here. Aubrey and CJ are on their way back from Virginia, and so several of us are pitching in to be with the children in Mommy's absence. The fact that Dad could have them all over here so early is simply amazing...what's more amazing is that his own shirt was ironed, tie tied, and a smile on his face! He brought a bag stuffed with clothes, diapers, extra underwear, the day's meds, the nebulizer...and it doesn't appear he's forgotten a thing except perhaps a pony-tail holder for the princess.
So, now everyone is dressed, breakfasted, medicated, and ready for a morning of play. We won't try much schoolwork today. Perhaps a read-aloud and some craft in the afternoon, but I'm afraid that ten students is a little too much for this Granny. Besides, isn't Reformation Day a holiday?
