A couple from our branch asked us to stay with their older kids while they went back to the U.S. for a few days, and we were happy to do so! Not just because they live in a super nice house, and not just because the idea of having an actual fully stocked pantry at our fingertips made us giddy, but also because we love their family and we knew we would have a blast.

Which, of course, we did. These kids are some of the most mature, well-behaved kids I have ever met. We enjoyed "playing parent", and we REALLY enjoyed that because of how awesome they all were that meant almost no actual work on our part. Basically Spencer and I made sure they did their homework and that they went to bed.

"Ok, everyone do your homework!"

"Ok, time for bed!"

Other than that? We played. The best day was Saturday. It happened to be the warmest day of the year so far at 80 degrees, and we all LOVED lounging around in shorts and tshirts. And then they had the brilliant idea to involve water. Enjoy.

And as a special bonus, I caught someone singing while doing dishes one night...
