It turns out the trip to Arizona was full of fun and dramatics. My Sister-in-law phoned on Day 2 already reporting tears. I guess it is inevitable with 4 GIRL cousins all around the same age. I remember tears with my girl cousins too.
I had a few facetimes and texts with Phoebe and tried to help negotiate from my end (far far away), but they were pretty much on their own. After hearing all about the trip, I decided the next cousin encounter should be on neutral ground, because last summer they all got along very well.
I am sure it was stressful to have 2 extra kids on top of their 3, so my Bro and Sis in law are officially Saints for giving me a break! We showed Lolly this pic of her and told her she had something in common with Jesus, and I was horrified to learn she had no recollection of the Bible Story: Jesus Walks on Water. I’m going to get right on that, right after I clean up, take a nap, go for a run, write more thank-you notes, order fresh direct, blog, dry my hair, pay some bills, do another load of laundry, put on some makeup, scream at the kids, try to get the baby to take a binky AGAIN……………..
