the result:


2 last minute trips to Orange City
17 van loads to Bibles for Missions
9 van loads to the Justice For All trailer
2 major child tempertantrums
1763 trips up and down the stairs
1 trip to Butlers for a treat
3 wonderful families caring for my little ones
1 emotional meltdown
5 nights of sleeping with my boy digging his chin into my chest just to be close
6 days of seeing Maria and Hazel for MOST of the day
1 trip to the goat farm
3 two liters of Diet Coke (thanks, Dad!)
1 bonfire with marshmallows and s'mores
8 trailers-full of stuff to haul to the storage garage
35 trash bags full of really old stuff that no one used in the last ten years or more
1 grateful dad working his butt off
2 hardworking daughters :) and
a WHOLE bunch of other people helping clean and do yard work...

The result:
a slightly more organized house and one VERY tired mama.

now, somebody go buy that house. :)

I thank you guys too. So sorry I couldn't be there to help. I'm very impressed with only 2 temper tantrums and only 1 emotional meltdown. Geesh. Good job :)
