One of the biggest lessons I'm learning right now, is to hold all this "stuff" we have, with an open hand. On the weekends, and during the week for that matter, we have a constant stream of kids flowing in and out of our house. As a result I have grimy toys, two huge scratches in my kitchen table, and VERY dirty floors.
I think it's great that we have "the fun house". I love that the church kids feel comfortable coming over and spending hours and hours at a time playing Game Cube, "House", and eating my food. I love the fact that Anna has playmates (albeit playmates much older than her)... and that I sort of get a break when they're around... because they LOVE her and entertain her to no end.
And I love that it blesses their parents! Who wouldn't like a few hours of quiet while your kids play at someone else's house! It gives these ladies a chance to fellowship at the church (2 doors down) and not have kids screaming and running around.
