This past week we were able to entertain 3 of our “nieces and nephews” while their parents were busy house hunting. We had a lot of fun with them, but were once again reminded how much energy children have. I think we did a pretty good job at tiring them out this week. Marvin and I challenged them to a basketball game. Then all of the kids and me took on Uncle Marvin. Marvin barely pulled out a win. We played sardines, which I found out I was much better at hiding than finding. Marvin and their other uncle took them to a field and they tried out the Marvin’s boomerang. (Kathy thanks for sending it, they had so much fun and couldn’t wait until Uncle Marvin got home to go try it out.)
We topped the whole week off with a grand finale, a living room circus. ) It seriously felt like a circus during rehearsal, they all were very excited.) They all did a great job and even Marvin who sat down right before dress rehearsal and said, “Oh this is my nightmare” had fun. Marvin stole the show with his one ball juggling act. Other acts included a tightrope show, dancing monkeys, lion & tamer, magic tricks, and a clown show. We had so much fun and we certainly won’t forget that evening for a while.
