Unfortunately I don't have any pictures to go with this post, but I'll make it brief... as much as I can.
Fri. we got a call asking us to do shelter care. Shelter is when the states needs somewhere FAST to put kids until they get family or a more permanent place for the kid(s). Here's the catch... they needed shelter for 6 kids!! I about died!! We have an extra queen bed, 3 twins, and we have our pack n play. They kids ranged from ages 14 yrs to 18 months. SO! We decided to take the challenge. LUCKILY!! Our good friends were able to help us out TONS! So most of the time, we had all 6 kiddos during the day. Our friends would keep 2 of them at night.
So ended up getting the kids home about 6 p.m. Friday. I don't really want to go into details, but the last one left yesterday at about 4:30 p.m. Once again, not going into details, but all 6 are now in temporary custody of their dad(s).
So I just thought I'd share a bit of our latest adventure. It was fun having them. NOISY! LOL I think they only time it was quiet in this house was when we were all sleeping. We played, ate, went to the park a couple of times, and ... yes, picking up the house happened lots.
OH! Last quick story then I'm done :o) ... Jared and I ...being naive, thought we could handle 5 of the kids at wal-mart, getting them new clothes! NEVER AGAIN! LOL It was insane. We survived but I will take them in much smaller groups next time.
I love reading about your adventures, so keep them coming! Love to all!!!
