Our Saturday Night as the Duggars

Have you ever watched Nineteen Kids and Counting?  When we used to have cable, I loved that show.  On Saturday night, we were babysitting for my cousin's two girls.  They were supposed to go out to dinner with their grandparents while we went to church, but they begged to come with us.  Who can say no to kids begging to go to church?  So off we went, looking a little like the Duggars.  We loaded up our minivan to full capacity with two seven-year-olds, a six-year-old, a five-year-old and a four-year-old. Duggar kids need a name that starts with a "J", so here are J-relia, Janna, and Java.

We're thrifty like the Duggars too.  Note that Anna's wearing a lovely dress I recently bought at a garage sale for a dollar. These girls were washed up, dressed up, revved up and ready to go.  Maybe a little too revved up, I was thinking. When we arrived, the three girls got ahead of us and marched into church by themselves, right up to the very front row.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little exposed sitting up there, but like well-behaved Duggar children, these five managed to make it through the entire service without incident.  And this morning, while our family was at hockey practice, J-relia and Java, I mean, Aurelia and Ava, went to church again with their parents.  Yep, that's how we roll around here -- just like the Duggars.
