Hello blogging world!
This is Leslie, Christianne's sister, and I get to do a guest post!!!
This is a few of the happenings while the rest of the family has been away.
And I thought pictures speak louder than words. Let's just say the kids have been happy happy happy!
*disclaimer: I haven't blogged in years and years, and the format might be off, but I'm not going to take the time to change it. Also, sorry in advance for spelling/grammatical errors!
Cousins lined up to rope with uncle Jeremy. Xander spent hours practicing his lasso!
Lexi and Sophi became best friends with Tasey and Todd.
They absolutely adored their 2 dogs.

WE MADE IT BACK HOME!!!
I was able to bring back the 4 kids and meet Elli here at Jeremy and Christianne's house. The kids have been so so good and happy and easy!
One of the girls' biggest concerns was if I knew how to do girl hair, since I only have 3 boys. I reassured them I was a hair expert. Jessica skeptically asked, "ya but do you know how to do flower buns?" I told her I did, and successfully completed one on her hair one school morning. She said, "don't spray it yet. I need to go check it out in the mirror first to see if I like it." She came back in with big eyes and a big smile saying, "Wow! You really DO know what you're doing!"
Lexi & Sophi kept asking for "Elsa hair" and "Anna hair" from Frozen. They were so happy I knew how to braid!!!
Sophi amazed me eating noodles with chopsticks!
stuck left with the task of purchasing soccer cleats and shin guards for Xander's soccer league he is just starting. It was tricky but we found the perfect fit! Xander has been coming home from school every day, completing his homework, and then changing into his soccer gear to practice outside in the yard. He is so excited!
Xander can't wait until the rest of the family is home!
…and couldn't stop laughing at the poopoo smoothies!!!

Xander & Jesi being crazy!
Sophi & Lexi like to have matching hairdos every day. :-)
And when Sophi saw herself this morning, she said, "Wow. I look just like a young woman huh."
When I looked over the schedule at the beginning I was wondering if I could make it through the first morning!!! Without the older kids to help I didn't know if I could pull it off!
However, it has been so much fun helping out! The kids have been wonderful and easy! They've been happy and I've had so much fun reading blog posts and emails to them and showing them pictures of Conner and the rest of the family. It has been so sweet to hear their prayers, and I know they will bless Conner's life, as he will bless theirs!
That's all for now!
