Â Okay, so what’s with the shoes? Doug is leading a high-school Bible study in our family room in the basement on Wednesday nights. There must be forty plus kids downstairs, and they all very kindly leave their snowy/wet/muddy shoes at my door. Last week when they all left, there was not a trace of them. A detective could not have figured out that we had piles of teenagers in our house just moments before. And I even served chocolate chip cookies and popcorn! These are great kids and very easy guests!
