SpongeBob's pineapple and a little bed...

Yesterday my sister brought her three boys to stay with us a few nights. Being the "wonderful" sister that I am (Hee! Hee!), I am trying to give her a few "quiet" days before she returns the favor and takes my kids back home with her. She has agreed to entertain my two next week while I am at camp. Anyway, instead of dragging around my normal two kids, I now have five.

This is a big step for us...for my youngest nephew, Tate, is a big mommy's boy! I wasn't even sure before they arrived if he would stay with us...

Surprise, surprise! When they arrived, Tate came in smiling and talking about the "little bed" I had set up just for him! (We have a trundle bed that is under Jordan's bunk beds.) Even after mommy left, he was excited about his own little bed.

Of course my biggest challenge would be getting Tate to "Bible School." Sure enough, just like Amber said, he woke up saying, "I don't want to go to Bible School!" Finally, I asked him if he wanted to go see SpongeBob's pineapple. (There is a big blow up of a pineapple at the church) Yeah, he decided he wanted to see the big pineapple, but wanted to come right back home. I told him we were going to find a new friend to play with. He told me he already had enough friends! I told him he would have fun. He told me he could have enough fun at home...

We went to VBS, and after a tearful moment, he had fun. He made a "shaker" and tomorrow he gets to make music. I asked him if that meant he wasn't going to cry tomorrow, and he was going to go have fun... he said he would "have to think 'bout it."

Anyway, here are a few pictures, so mommy can see everyone at Bible School, SpongeBob's pineapple and Tate in his "little bed."
