My sister Rikka arrived at our house yesterday and will be here until the 14th. She is accompanied by her almost four-year old son, Hendrix and my cousin Apple. Tomorrow my other cousin Karla is set to arrive and plans to stay here for one solid week. Mom is also here, and as you can imagine, our house is chaos personified. With nine adults and three toddlers (aged almost 4, almost 3 and almost 2), we are a constant source of noise pollution in the neighborhood. It’s perfect timing that our neighbor decided to take a one-month break and left just before the mass exodus of relatives to the house.
Yesterday, we just watched a lot of TV and played outside with the kids for a while. We haven’t gone anywhere yet, but I expect to go out a lot in the next week. So that means work is sacrificed, but I’m not complaining. I need this distraction and I am more than glad to see the three cousins (Elijah, Svet and Hendrix) playing together again after a long time of not seeing each other. Here’s the three posing for a quick picture yesterday while we were outside:
