"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Watch Kids

The project:
Watch another mother's kids while she gets some chores and shopping out of the way.

2 hours

Why bother?
First of all, we love these kids. They've been gone to Papua New Guinea, serving a medical mission in the rainforest, for the past year. They're home for only a short time before their planned move to Texas. (We're super sorry to see them go, but we're taking every opportunity to see them.)

Getting back to life in the Western World must be quite a shock for all of them. And with the holidays fast upon us, an impending move and general confusion of life on the go, certainly any help is welcome.

Our girls love to play with them. I love to hear them all squealing and running, creating and generally enjoying each other.

Worth it?
ABSOLUTELY! But, really, if I enjoy it I ask once again...does it count? I'll say yes.
