We are on the home stretch!!!

This week Erika has been at Girl's Camp. We have missed her and we are so glad that she is coming home TOMORROW! I must brag a little about my other kids who have picked up the slack and really been my good helpers all week. My Mandy has been a lifesaver. She has been right by me and always asks what else I need her to do. On Wednesday night her cousin asked her to spend the night (and she loves to be over there) but she said no because she knew that I needed her at home! In the mornings she will entertain Jakey and Joseph so I can get the day started. Also on Wednesday we went to Makutu's Island and Mandy watched Jakey the whole time we were there and never complained. She also made 2 homemade dolls for her sisters tonight by herself. Emma has also been a really good helper. Today I made an attempt to make homemade bread for pioneer day and she was right there in the kitchen asking to help and she was a big help. Then tonight for dinner she was right there when it was getting ready asking what else she could do. Anna has even been a better listener at times.
I am so glad to be a mother and I am so thankful for such great kids!!!

I'm reading Little Women right now and I can't help comparing them to your 4 girls. You have a special bunch.
