Jacob and I are truly blessed with amazingly supportive families. His parents are willing to come help us out at any notice and even though my family is far away they sacrifice their time together so my mom can help us out every week watching the babies. having the babies has made our families stronger and larger- and not just 5 babies larger but larger in the sense that our closest friends have become like family to us-we rely on them, depend on them, and know we can count on them anytime we need them. When I saw this quote on Pinterest I instantly thought of our friends the Kavlicks and Vidikas (even though the Vidikas are distant relatives the babies brought them closer to us)
The Kavlicks and Vidikas recently raised money in order to buy the quints new carseats...crazy to think that something as simple as moving up to the next size carseat could cost almost a thousand dollars in itself!! Not only did they raise enough for carseats but also for potty training toilets for each bathroom, pull-ups, wipes, and some of their favorite finger foods! They are such selfless people...someday I hope I'm able to be there for them when they need something!
