I'll admit, the idea of a sleepover was still a little daunting for me, but much easier than an actual daytime, way too many kids (do we really need games?) brouhaha. Much, much easier! Eleanor wanted to invite only children from school that are "nice to her." (Now…I honestly don't think this means that kids are not nice to her, but these were her words, not mine.) That cut our guest list down by quite a bit – two girls from school, two of her home-schooled friends, her sister, and her cousin. Pretty manageable. Plus, one of her home-schooled friends is a boy and not eligible for sleepover status. (Sorry, Drew!)
So…last Friday we hosted five children (not including Josephine) for our first-ever sleepover!
