Four Levels of Social Entrapment
This is a really interesting article that Granny linked to on Facebook.

Things went very well today with all the kids. Her boys and our girls got along really well, especially once they found out that we have light sabers and the girls play Star Wars. Even Anna got along with their daughter quite well.
There are only 10 kids here (you can barely see Kellen back there) because Arianna was wandering around and Isaac was asleep. The ages are 9,8,7,7,5,5,4,3,3,1,1,newborn. I had the oldest and the youngest. It was fun to talk about all the births we had between us. She is a new homeschooler, too so I showed her our curricula choices and how I planned it and reassured her that the chaos was normal and we gave her a ton of A Beka stuff that had been given to us. Their names are Nolan, Kellen, Jaylen, Deakon, Mikalen and Arianna. Fun family! It was quite fun to commiserate with a real person over the comments, "Are they all yours?", "You know what causes that, right?", "You sure do have your hands full!"
