Substitute Mommy

When the older kids were little, and I was a stay-at-home-mom, we always spent summers DOING stuff....working, playing, popsicles, water-fun, field trips, etc.
I have felt so blessed, this first summer that I'm working, that Jillian is home with us to step in as substitute-mommy for the small one.
Yesterday Jill took Grace and her friends on a super-fun filled field trip to the Lehi Round Up Days festivities downtown! They did all sorts of free stuff...face painting, museum, hoola-hooping for prizes....then came home and set up the slip-and-slide and spent the afternoon playing at our house.
I got home, sat with them for a bit outside, then I took the girls all up to play at Brynlie and Carsyn's house. Went straight from there to take my brother's kids to see him in Salt Lake (I'm trying to figure out how to post about those experiences...) and when I got home about 9pm discovered that Jill had even CLEANED and TIDIED up the house after we all left. You all know the huge cluttery messes that happen when everyone is home for summer vacation...
Thank you Jillian! I love you and appreciate you more than you know!
