One BIG sleepover!

A new experience for us: hosting 24 Habitat for Humanity college students/leaders overnight.
This group was on their way back from building a home in Georgia to their school, the Univ. of Pittsburgh. We managed to feed them all dinner while learning about how their project for HFH worked. I was glad to have just enough food, and was shocked to realize just how much food 24 grown people can eat! In the morning, we mixed Daylight Savings with their early departure, so I was glad that Justin cooked breakfast while I prepared the fruit, coffee, and eating utensils. Even if I wasn't this pregnant, I think I'd have still needed a nap Sunday afternoon after church, but it was a fun time for us, and we were happy to help them out. The guys slept on the third floor and a few on the first floor in our family room, the girls slept on the second floor in the extra bedrooms... lots of sleeping bags everywhere! For having that many people here, they left our house neat and tidy. :)
The leader of this group, Jonny, is a Messiah alum, and I was good friends with his younger brother, James, at Messiah. Seeing college people that I haven't seen in a long time is ALWAYS awesome! (After they had gone, Izzy said, "I like Jonny. Hims nice. Hims carried Clara.")
Lots of shoes!

Izzy didn't want them to leave Sunday morning. I mean, all the extra attention (and cell phones for her to play on) was pretty fun!!!
