Proof kids do live here!

Yes, kids really do live here. There is proof everywhere you look. As I was out in the yard the other day, I decided to gather some photographic evidence of that fact.

LIKE...

soccer ball kicked beneath a bush...

Dora doll house kitchen chair...

Dora tent...

Skateboard embedded in mud...

basketball left among the twigs...

missing church shoes...

little kitchen dinner plate...

one lonely croc...

sagging backyard pool complete with dirt from a full days swimming and missing 3/4 water used to make mud for skateboard...

HEY! Why isn't that in the dishwasher?!?...

sponge bob soccer ball...

one rain boot of someone with soggy feet

ice chest perfect for that little extra boost to climb a tree...

Dora's horse drawn carriage minus one horse...

and of course one portable washer/dryer/ironing board on the sidewalk...
I have to work at thanking God like I should for the trails my children leave behind them. I have to remember to be thankful because those trails leave with them a message. They say we have been blessed with children. They say that this is the home of a FAMILY. They say we are fortunate and have toys to play with and shoes to wear and cups to drink from. They say the children here are healthy and happy and always on the go. They say imaginations are in use. I must remind myself that my house is not messy it is lived in....my yard is not messy it is played in!

I love the pictures! It makes me sad to think how upset we get over a lost shoe or toys that have been left outside or a mud hole everyone has to step in as long as it is wet.Posts this are why I love you. You help me see another side to things. Your a blessing!
Love Ya Lots!
