Saturday Chuck and Sarah‘s husband took ten kids to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Seattle. My kids *loved* it. The tickets were provided to us by the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Starlight has been such an amazing blessing to our family.
Chuck has been working hard and took the opportunity to relax with a book this Sunday afternoon. We had one child sick in the morning, so he stayed home with Tucker, Avi and Apollo.
I took the rest of the crew (read: eight children) to church. That would have been fine if it didn’t become very apparent during the service that another child was sick and we needed to leave STAT. After leaving three times and eventually vomiting, I knew it was time to take her home.
And that would have been fine, except there were nine of us, sitting very close to the front and we were faced with two options for leaving: down the center aisle or climbing over two adults and a young lady in a wheelchair. Which, really was no choice at all. So mid-sermon we all got up and left. Yes, mid-sermon. The kids were quite and respectful, but there is simply no way for us to leave inconspicuously. #largefamilyproblems
Once we were home we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon. We read. We sat cozy in front of a warm fire. Towers were build and zoos designed. Hats were knitted and pizza baked.
It was a good day.
