May had a friend from school spend the night last night. They were so responsible that they turned off the movie they were watching at 10pm and went to bed on their own. Go girls!
This morning the three older kids plus May's friend sang with our church children's choir as guests at another church. It was a mega-church with two services and probably 120+ kids in children's church each service. It was a neat experience for them, and they had fun. Sweets was selected as a volunteer for a game to see who would eat weird things: beet directly out of the ground, brussel sprout, onion... She even took a bite of a pig's foot - yuk! Of course, she couldn't wait to get something real to eat to get that taste out of her mouth!
After lunch, May's friend went home and I picked up Sweets' two younger sisters, ages 5 and 6. Then we met another mom and five of her nine kids at a bowling alley for two hours. The kids all did great! They waited patiently for their turns and helped each other. They finished two full games (with bumpers, of course) and all seemed to enjoy themselves! We even had different winners each time.
