Girls! Girls! Girls!
Jaime, Allison, Taylor, Alison, Paige, Sam, Kelsey, Levi, Amy, Brittany
This past weekend, we had the opportunity to host 7 high school girls at our house. Sam's brother, Joe, was on a committee in charge of the WASC (Washington Association of Student Councils) Conference. To help him out, we volunteered to be a home stay family and have student leaders come stay out our house. It was a fun experience. Levi loved all the attention. I was really impressed by the caliber of these girls and how polite they were. One of the girls who stayed with us, Jamie, is highly functioning mentally retarded. Her friend and mentor, Amy, also stayed with us. Amy was absolutely amazing with her, and I was really impressed at how well all the other girls did with her as well. The girls were also so thoughtful as to bring us gifts! I think it is something we would definitely do again in the future. The only downside was that Levi lost out on quite a bit of sleep staying up late and waking up early. Then on Sunday, we switched church times to 1pm... Levi usually goes down for his nap around 12/12:30. So he only got an hour nap on Sunday. Well, yesterday he really made up for it. He woke up at 9am. At 9:50am, he went back down for a nap... AND SLEPT UNTIL 2PM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say, he has been much happier since catching up on his missed sleep.
