We had extra visitors this week. Jill picked up Josh, Ally, and their parents' car near Chicago, and they stayed with us for a week. [I skipped that trip because I was feeling terrible. I think a lack of sleep, a cold, and allergies conspired to nearly wipe me out for 2 weeks.] We had a blast pretending to be a family of 6 wherever we went. Let me tell you, adding two bigger kids that can do lots of things and have great attitudes is no problem. Adding two more babies would hurt.
Finally, I should add that another person does in fact live in our house. After a 2 year break from us, Fereshteh is back under our roof. She's in the guest room, so now guests stay in Clara's room and the four of us all sleep in our room.
