I'm a Catholic homeschooling mama of seven kids. Four are adults now, and living at various stages of life out of the house. Two of my adult daughters are getting married this year. Here's where I'll be hanging out my laundry, gaining perspective, and, down the road, have something to remember all the wooshing days.

Fast Food with Benefits

We are on our way back from Arnprior to prepare for Saturday's wedding.  So far we have had non-stop socializing and exceptional hospitality in Ottawa and Barry's Bay.  It is fun and energizing for the family extroverts.  It is fun and tiring for the family introverts  and they need a nap soon.  So first priority in Arnprior is nap-time.

But anyway.  After all the home cooked meals and conviviality, some fast food seemed in order.  We stopped in the town of Renfrew, ON for said fast food.  We were in Renfrew for approximately eight minutes, but in that short time, we experienced and extraordinary level of cordiality.  A fast food server who bent over backwards to be patient and helpful, a gentleman opening doors, and three  compliments on our lovely family, including a comment with the youngest two that we had the "million dollar" family:  two of each...bwahahahaha!  I thanked the man and told him that we actually had seven children and these were the youngest two.  He smiled and laughed heartily, telling me to enjoy ALL of them!

Thanks, Renfrew, for your eight minutes of joy.  It will keep me smiling all day.
