What I did discover I wanted was for my house to be the "hangout" for the kids. Sometimes its exhausting having all the kids at my house. And it also gets really expensive. I try to have inexpensive, easy snacks at my house at all times. I also try to not get annoyed at all the kids running around and having to vacuum 100 times a day.
I know this is just the beginning. I only have two school age kids that have friends knocking on the door, but I pray that this will always be how my house.
My house will welcome all the kids, always.
I will feed their bellies.
Listen to their stories.
Pray over them.
I want my house to be the hangout house.I love to hear what they chat about, what they are missing at home. Also, I will know exactly what's going on in my kids lives. I love that idea, I hope they will always want to hang out here. And I pray that no matter where we live, other kids and friends will feel welcomed and so loved.
Our pool filled with kiddos! The noise is so sweet, giggles and laughter. I'm so glad we finally got the pool set up. Our summer has been crazy busy but getting the pool up was the best thing we could do to let the kiddos burn off their crazy energy!
Here's to a summer FILLED with crazy neighborhood children.
