The boys are fitting in pretty darn well. I wouldn't call it a honeymoon, because they aren't shy about letting us know they aren't pleased, challenging our authority, or just plain being bratty, but they are also funny and charming and pretty naturally Andersons.
Having five kids isn't exponentially harder than having three. The only very significant difference is how long it takes to get everyone in the car and out of the house. Seth has been late to school every day for the last week!
Saturday morning we packed everyone up and headed to the zoo to celebrate one week home. We went with some family friends of ours and we got this group picture on a convenient bench. The two girls in the pink belong to the Garcia family and are just adorable! The rest are members of the Anderson clan! On the bench, in order, Finn, Seth, Evie, and Jake, and Gillian is crouched on the ground. I won't mention the names of the two girls, because I didn't ask their family for permission.
