Kids say the Darndest things!

Yesterday I got a phone call from another mom whose kids are currently off track asking if Rafiki could play with her son.  I quickly called back to see if Kobee could play with her daughter, who is in his school class.  So off they go "the back way" to get to their friends' house.  They played for about three hours and came home around dinner time.  I asked Rafiki if he had fun, which he certainly did.  Rafiki said, "Mom, their house is huge.  It's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside!"  I had to laugh.  It was particularly cute coming from an eleven year old.  We've never lived in an area where there are affluent families so it was quite an adventure for them.

Are you trying to say, Shetland Meadows isn't affluent? What gave it away? Was it my white trash yard? ;)

LOL, you crack me up. Your yard is just fine. I drove past it yesterday. We have a neighbor on our street whose yard is probably worse than anyone in Shetland Meadows. We used to tease Dennis that "If directions to your house say turn off the paved road, you might be a redneck."

Keeping an acre of yard clean isn't easy, but we're trying to not look like rednecks here. Oh, and we live on the end of a dirt road, same house we use to tease Dennis about.
