Hazardous Life in a Large Family...

We had a funny thing happen yesterday....

The kids are all enjoying sleeping in (we usually let them be lazy until 8:30 or so, since they ARE on summer vacation, as they are so good to remind us), but yesterday morning, I had a doctor's appointment and Tim had to be at the office, so I'd arranged to drop the kids off at a friend's house. We are waiting for a new battery for the LandCruiser, which means we are presently a one car family, so we all needed to be ready to pile in the car at 8 a.m. to drop Tim off at the office. As we were walking out to the car, one of the big girls asked, "Where is Victoria?" she most certainly wasn't on her way out to the car with the rest of us, so we unlocked the door and called. No answer. Rebekah was sent back into the little girls' bedroom and found her there, sound asleep on her bed....

Needless to say, we waited a few minutes for her to get dressed, grab a piece of toast, and then we were off to start our day. And we were so thankful for the child that thought to ask the question. Victoria is good at holding grudges and she would have been mad for a very, very long time had we actually left her!
