Great Grace

Grace and Elijah

So I could have titled this blog Amazing Grace, but didn't want to be clichéd; Grace would have a serious problem with that. =)

Since Elijah was born exactly two weeks ago, Grace has stayed with us here and has helped me immeasurably with the little guys. She has taken it upon herself to do housework without being told what to do, cooked, and has pretty much run the household for me while I've rested and gathered strength after the marathon of labor. I cannot thank her enough; she has been a true lifesaver, as well as a great companion to me each day.

Today Hannah drove up with my mom and Joy, Christopher, Joel and Rachel to pick up Grace and drop off Joy. Joy will be with us for the next week-and-a-half (until the 4th of July weekend). As Greg said yesterday "Grace has pretty much kicked butt the past two weeks, so Joy has pretty big shoes to fill." quite high praise from someone like him. In the few hours since the "nanny swap", Joy has been proving herself to be up for the challenge. Go Joy!

Thank God for little sisters.

Next week you'll have to write an Ode to Joy. :)

Yeah, see what I'm saying? It could get totally out of control. =)
