|Jacob and Henry|
It took Henry a little while to get social but he had an amazing time. Of course when you get two three year old boys together, there will be Ironman, Spiderman, Ninja Turtles…every super hero you can think of.

We watched them go from Superhero's to playing music in a band to being soccer players to being animals in a tree. I absolutely love a three year old imagination. I wish I could read their minds sometimes.
By 1:15 they were both tired, so we started cleaning up and gathering our stuff together to go home. Jacob was crying because he didn't want to take a nap and Henry was crying because he didn't want to leave. Thankfully, by the time we got into the car, Henry was no longer crying and I think Jacob was okay too.
It's like I said yesterday, The Joy in the Ordinary. When you stop and think about it, days like yesterday are not ordinary for some. The feeling of peace and security is only a dream for some in the world. Even in our beautiful, wonderful, amazing United States. So many children live in dangerous homes with abusive parents…both physically and mentally. Their homes are full of drugs and poverty. I pray as I feel blessed, that I never forget what others live in and with.
"At the end of life
we will not be judged
by how many diplomas we have received,
how much money we have made,
how may great things we have done.
We will be judged by;
I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was naked and you clothed me.
I was homeless and you took me in."
