Once upon a time...

There were 10 children, some related, some not.

All friends and relations of Owen. They came to play in the schoolyard in the pouring rain, eat hot dogs and hamburgers, Duncan Hines cake, watch Harry Potter, roll out their sleeping bags on the basement floor (which really means one in the attic, two in the living room, one in the family room, and  six somewhere in between). So many foreheads to kiss good night, no matter where they land. Thank you God, for that.

Some new house rules :

First, my new moniker WARDEN KATE
"Warden, no swearing" - FYI crap and shit are NOT foul language - just sayin'
then - ok, so no matter where your parents TOLD me they might be tonight.... 911 is easy

But really, I adore these kids - love the possibilities of what their / our futures hold for us

They are so lovely, funny, good natured, adaptable, marvelous.

Good night. God speed.
