a homeless man sat down with the kids at church last night and taught them how to make paper airplanes and how to weave a basket. He felt so special and needed! The kids loved it. Later that night we saw him sleeping on a table in the back:)

John and I came home from a date night last night to this scenario: Dirty dishes on the living room floor, Twister game set up in the kitchen and my youngest woke up this morning with his chest decorated in sharpie mustaches, eyeballs around his nipples and the words"I AM HOT" written in red across his chest!
