Group Growth

In a previous post I was telling you a little about our small group and all the kids. Well, it turns out kids aren't invited so now we're trying to figure out what to do, and convince ourselves it's worth it to actually PAY a babysitter (everybody else has parents in town) two evenings a month when we're not even going out on a date. Hm....

Also, did I sat 11 kids? Yeah, I meant 12. The baby that was due in September is here (another girl!) and another couple joined our group and she's due January 1st (just like Erin K.!). So, yeah, make that 12 kids, five newborns among them. Jody and I are hoping the next two will be baby girls too because won't that be fun? Five little girls, all born within nine months of each other!

And that is all.

Yeah, we understand. Sometimes it would be nice to have free babysitting like everyone else.

Howdy! How y'all doin' with that new baby over there?

I hear you on the free babysitting - what an enormous blessing.... when we can get it. Not every time, like it used to be. :) Now it's more the exception than the rule - but I'm not complaining. I love it, no matter how often it comes. :)

I hope you're doing well. Miss ya.

We have no nearby family, and no babysitter prospects either. Our new SG has two newborns, plus mine and two more on the way in January/February. A new couple just came who have a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 mo. old, so we're all contemplating trading care with another small group so that they come and watch our kids during our SG and we take turns going to watch theirs.
