This week our nieces, Amanda and Samantha, are staying with us. They are 15 and 13 years old. Normally when we go to Iowa to visit, these girls along with Madison, don't stop giggling.
But, on Sunday when they got in the car to come up with Mike and the kids, they turned almost mute. They are so quiet - it's almost frightening. We've decided that we must be incredibly scary to live with. Or we are incredibly dull and they are bored out of their minds.
But, we have heard the occasional squeaks from them - mostly poolside.
A couple nights ago we had a bonfire and Mike found another visitor. Maddie named him Cocoa.
