The three older boys were invited to visit their grandparents for a few days.
I took the time to investigate....what was in that backpack I confiscated awhile ago because
a couple first graders were playing with matches?
And I've passed by a vest many times, lifting it briefly from its hook with a passing thought, why does this weigh at least twenty pounds?
Also a pink striped bag looked unassuming but had been lying around since Easter...what was in it?
All this from a seven year-old boy who lost his tooth eating cotton candy this weekend.
