I love traveling. I feel as if I will never get sick of it.

I am in Kuala Lumpur airport right now getting ready to board a plane that leaves to Korea. I am so thrilled because we get to spend 12 hours looking around Korea.

So far this trip I have been to 3 different countries. On the way over to Borneo, Chris and I had a day in Hong Kong. It was so exciting to explore the city. At the first sight of the city I started to squeel with excitment. I felt like a little kid seeing Disney Land for the first time.

I just LOVE new place and sights.

I wish there was a Major for a world traveler.

In the process of growing up, why do we often lose the importance of playing?

This past week I have spent almost 24/7 with three small boys. There has been plenty of punching, screaming, disobeying, lying and being caught in the lie, air soft wounds, skateboarding wounds, and more than an ear full of name calling. O the name calling... I mean how many times do you get to hear "He's such a fat turtle lard." ?

This is what makes a little boy.

You know what I love about these little boys? They aren’t afraid to play and play hard. They play until they are all tuckered out. They play until their pants are caked in dirt, they play until they have won the war.

In the beginning of this week I was so concerned with the things I had to get done. The boys would ask me to play and I always had something I had to do. I could only play for a little bit.

Then one day this week one of the little guys said to me "Kati come play. EVERYONE needs to play."

This is soo true. In India I told myself I was going to make time for the important things and live each day to the max. Capacity. And here I was not doing that one bit. I am convinced that playing is important and that is why most kids are happy...because they PLAY!

kids are so smart.

A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,
Beauty with a cut on its finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

God created boys, full of spirit and fun to explore and conquer, to romp and run.

A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine.
