Family Circus

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. - Doug Horton


My children ARE angels!

Tonight was Date Night at church. This event happens once per calendar quarter. Inexpensive childcare from 6-8PM on the church campus, dinner at the restaurant of our own choosing, then entertainment from 8-9PM, back on-campus. The comedian Bob Smiley ( father of three boys), made us alternately laugh, cry, clap and cheer tonight- about things that happen to all parents. His final thoughts for tonight were words that rang true in my heart: " I know that my children are angels sent straight from heaven. God must have been ready for some more peaceful times up there."
