My friend Holly came up with a brilliant idea of starting a babysitting club. A few families have gotten together to trade babysitting nights so that in exchange for one wild and crazy night of watching nine kids, each couple will get four nights out without needing to pay for a babysitter. Matt and I went first and had the kids over on Saturday night. Other than an unfortunate moment of stomach upset that sent Katelyn and R.J. home early, everything went smoothly and the kids all had a fun time!
Pizza on a Stick (These were easy to make and very tasty! You can find the recipe here.)
Athena, Henry, and Katelyn
Ava, Oliver, and Elijah
Athena and Henry playing rock and roll band--Athena was the lead guitarist and Henry was her boyfriend (who was also, apparently, a flute player).
Thanks for the great idea, Holly! We are definitely looking forward to our nights out! :)
