Bolivar MO Family
I pulled down the driveway and Eisley was waiting with the cat that is not named Kitty Soft Paws. That much I remember. She sat on the edge of the porch with her boots and floral dress and cuddled her kitten.
Stella walked out the front door and showed me the bike that was conveniently parked on the sidewalk for a speedy getaway. The homes that sit next to theirs belong to their friends so it makes sense to leave your bike out in case it's time to play.
Around that time, a barefoot Leo ran out of the house toward the trampoline. The three of them together would make you smile! Stella is a bold leader, Eisley is wildly joyful, and Leo is tender-hearted. Together they make the sweetest sibling team that you have ever seen!
Don't you even get me started on their parents. Kim and Jeremy love their people. Do you want to be loved? Do you want to be their people? Deal. Done. They are so willing and even eager to serve and love those around them. They want community and they embrace it. But I think the thing that they might not know is that they teach others how to live in authentic community too.
