We survived day one!
Bethany stayed at a friends house last night, so there were only 5 of us. I think Katie felt a bit outnumbered. I grilled out (note to self: you are only feeding 5 not 8 so you can fix less food) and we have plenty of leftovers for a couple more meals. I stocked up on frozen veggies, we have plenty of rice and potatoes (bunch of leftover baked ones) so I think we are set for food. We watched the second Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers extended version. That thing is like 4 hours long! I guess everyone slept in, because when I stopped by the house today after a meeting to see if everyone was alright they looked like they had just gotten up. Katie was still in bed reading. I need to figure out how to motivate everyone to get up and around when I'm not there. It looks like Kristi landed in Denver at 4:15 yesterday, so I assume she's doing fine. I haven't heard yet, but the kids might have talked to here at home.
