Saturday I had to go out of town unexpectedly. Jimmy had to work, so his sweet sister, Jenny, agreed to come over and stay with my children. She brought her 6yo little girl and two boxes of donuts, and she stayed here at my house with my five children, her little girl, and two more of my brother's children. 8 children. At a day's notice! I was so very thankful! She fed them all the yummy breakfast she brought and lunch too. She also washed, dried, and folded three loads of laundry! She took the trash out and dragged our two huge garbage cans from the highway back to our house (not a short driveway....running up and down it 3 times = 1 mile!). She changed the sheets on Sam's bed (he had wet the bed during the night), and made up the other children's beds too. The children were all playing happily when I got home, and to see that clean, folded made my day!

Thank you so much Jenny!!
