Today I decided to participate in a "meme" that I saw on Facebook. I have chosen to ask each of my boys the following questions about me and write down their exact responses. I interviewed them each separately so they wouldn't copy each others answers even though a few of them had the same responses. This ought to be good. If you decide to play along, leave me a comment and let me know.
And just a reminder:
Luke is 3
Carson is 6
Taylor is 11
