Girl Scout Visit

I about gasped in horror to see this picture from Saturday afternoon. Then burst out laughing. It's so bad it's funny, and this was the best! No offense to the lovely girls who were trying their hardest; guess our babies are too chubby to be held easily, and remembering the condition in which many of them arrived...that's a good problem!
Shortly after this chaotic group picture taking session, a couple girls were overheard asking "What time do we leave?" It was a wee bit more overwhelming than they had planned for, as they saw that even adorable babies and yes even TWINS are actually just lots of work. With so many "helpers", we still lacked hands. It was a good afternoon though and I think that in the end, the girls enjoyed their experience.
Today we were asked to take in a 1 year old boy until mid-December and I actually said YES (trying to get the government on our good side again, after sooo many NOs) but in the end he went to the same home as his older siblings. That's a relief, although of course a disappointment too after expecting him all afternoon. HOWEVER we're finally closer to transferring our baby Carla's 1 year old brother from the home where he's lived since birth, so there will still be a new child soon!
