This was going to be the first time that they had "friends" not cousins stay the night with them. So they were pretty excited. The girls that we asked, ironically, they hadn't ever stayed with anyone other than family before either, so it was a first for all the girls...that made all of them feel better. :)
So I called and asked the moms first and they both said yes, they were coming over Friday afternnoon.
It just so happened that my girls had been in Vacation Bible School all that week and this was the last day and they were doing a "Celebration" at the park for everyone to come and enjoy dinner, snow cones, bounce houses, they had a swimming pool, etc. I thought
Thank you to all of you who offered suggestions...we are excited to have another one and so are the girls.
