The kids decided they all wanted friends to come over tonight. So after a long day at work, with lots of testing, reports and meetings with parents, I came home to 1 senior, 3 juniors, an 8th grader, two 6th graders, a 5th grader and a 2nd grader. All hungry. Pepper and I made salad, spaghetti and garlic bread. The garlic bread was a hit, spaghetti went fairly well and I have a lot of salad left over!! The potato chips and double stuffed Oreo’s are totally gone.
The older kids all watched a movie and were so quiet at times I had to peek in on them… or send in one of the younger kids to do my dirty work! The younger kids spent the evening playing outside with bows and arrows practicing target shooting. Pete’s friend asked if he could bring his gun as well for some target practice… I was a bit worried about WHO the targets would be, so I said no to the gun, and only agreed to bows. (I knew Pepper and I had a limit to how much activity we could supervise tonight… guns were WAY over the limit.)
Everyone got along amazingly well, and I am happy to report no injuries or casualties and everyone seemed to have a good time. Even when the dog jumped on a couple of the older ‘love birds’ lying a bit too close together on the floor! Such a good watch dog she is becoming!! It was a fun evening even if I felt like the Old woman that lived in a shoe that had so many children she didn’t know what to do!! ☺
Leave It to Me - So today I poked myself in the eye with the corner of some tri-folded paper towels that I reached up to grab off a shelf when I needed to wipe my mouth aft...
