My kids are always surprising me. The above picture is an example of their efforts. My 7-year-old had a school play about the rain forest. He was an explorer and did a great job. Actually, he was probably the best explorer ever to set foot on that stage! After the play was done, I asked him to make it look like he was looking for something – like an explorer, and I would take a picture to send to the grandparents. WELL, I just looked at my pictures and I saw this CRAZY!
Besides my family’s everyday activities that surprise me, here are a few other things I find quite surprising.
