Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's slumber party night here at the Krigsman house, and everyone has been bouncing off the walls all day!
Our cousins came to visit this weekend, so it's been a day of fun for everyone. They moved down to Florida in July as well, but we haven't been able to get together until now, so it's great to have them here. They arrived early this afternoon and it was warm enough for the kids to all go swimming after lunch. They had such a blast playing with each other and the they just went in to bed now after settling down with a movie and popcorn.
The girls were so happy because their two girl cousins are just a little younger and older than they are, so the four girls have been bonding all day. My brother's also pretty happy because his boy cousin is just a few years younger than he is, so they've been playing video games together and having fun. It's amazing how loud this house has become with the addition of just three more kids, because all six of them have been so excited and were screaming as they played throughout the house.
We tried to venture out for dinner, but we left too late and everything was completely crowded when we got to the restaurants. So we ended up ordering pizza instead and got back home shortly before it was delivered. Still a pretty good meal, but I think we were all disappointed in not being able to go to the restaurant. Even though I was the most excited to be going out to dinner (yes, I know how pathetic that sounds), I know it was probably better to eat at home because the kids were so crazy.
I even got a little something out of this whole sleepover deal, because I tried some beer and wine tonight! I've tried sips of a handful of drinks since I turned 21 last year, and haven't really found a drink that I like. Unfortunately tonight was no different, as both the beer and the wine tasted awful to me. I guess I'll just have to keep trying different alcoholic beverages until I'm able to find something that I like!
Now we're all wiped out, but my mom, our cousin, and I are happy to sit and chat now that it's actually quiet throughout the house. I could still hear the girls in the bedroom giggling as they put themselves to sleep... they're so excited to be having a slumber party. I can't wait to see how tomorrow goes!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
