“So we don’t open the house until 6:30. But R—— and C—— said they are bored and would like to clean or paint or something. So I made them a deal that they can come in after school, NO ONE else, lock the doors and paint until their hearts are content. They were over the top excited. I showed them the trim they could paint, one particular wall, stuff like that. Well I came back 3 hours later to find that they painted the entire dining room baby blue!…. I almost crapped myself right there…. Trim and everything…. And… they painted the trim between the 2 big rooms black, all of which was still wet when the others started to show up…. Yeaaaahhh… It was interesting, and fun. Both of them were covered in paint! My wife said she would supervise this week.
So far, 1 life has changed, mine.
After 3 months away from Spring Green and the new school year just begun, I was dying to find out how things were going back home in Campus Life. Matt sent me the above response in reference to the first meeting of the new year and his first meeting fully and completely in charge of EVERYTHING.
It made me laugh. Out loud. I was truthfully LOLing for probably the first time in my life.
Man, I love Matt. And I love “my kids,” too.
But I’m sure glad I’m not the one who needs to figure out what to do with the paint. 🙂
