The four kids are all getting on really well. The girls have fit in at school with no problems at all. Its a small shock to the system to suddenly be responsible for two extra walking talking squawking school-age kids. Each of us (Elf, Imp and I) have looked after the lot at one time or another. I walked them all to school this morning, and it was actually simpler than supervising at home with an infinite variety of mischief and squabble opportunities.
