My Crazy Explorer

 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.
