me + SIX kids

So, obviously we moved over the weekend.... but I haven't shared what we were doing the week leading up to moving! I'm not sure who had the harder week- me or Eric?
After spending the previous weekend visiting his family, Eric came home and packed up the whole house. Yep, the whole house! I think I packed one box, ha. He's a keeper ;)
After spending the previous weekend in Vegas, I stayed about an hour from home (while Eric packed up the whole house) babysitting 5 boys for the week. I do this every year and love it! It's been so fun to watch the boys grow, and it's even funner to watch them fall in love with Mia! They were so great about playing with her and she was completely obsessed with "the boys!" They taught her to wrestle (and beat them over the head with a plastic bat, great!!) and played football. Mia is obsessed with football now :) The crappy part is that I was sick all week, I didn't get much sleep, and I was trying to get everything in order for the move by phone and email. But I'm glad we had that week because Mia loved it! Friday morning I sent the boys to school, packed Mia and I up, drove an hour home, dropped Mia off with a friend then loaded the Uhaul with Eric. It was a crazy week/weekend!
Letsbehonest here.... Eric totally had the hardest job, ha ha! He is super husband and I appreciate him more than he'll ever know! Now if only I could line up a babysitting job just in time for our next move ;)

I bet Aria would totally love playing the little sister to five boys for a week. She loves older kids, which is a shame as she is the eldest of all the kids we know.

Love the picture at the end! So cute.

Hahaha...perfect timing, girl! Your husband is a total saint for doing all the packing himself! But I can't imagine watching five boys would be easy, either...

OMG girl.... 5 boys?? No thank you! I think I'd almost prefer packing...almost. Maybe. LOL! That's a tough choice... can I pick a spa day instead? ;) Hope you're feeling better now! Being sick and moving is no fun!

That is a great picture of Mia with all the boys. Very cute!

As for Eric packing everything up, yea, he's a keeper for sure! Give him a "that-a-boy" for me. :)

having boys around is so much fun. Well I mean I am used to it... I need more little girls around ):

Oh my gosh! Looks like you had your hands full that week! But I bet Mia was LOVING the attention and the boys were loving her. So sweet! Though definitely good birth control for not having six kids of your own ;) I watched my nieces and Mason at the park for like a half hour and holy cow, I don't think I could even have three kids of my own! LOL
