When we were walking out of Fred Meyer the other day a homeless man with long hair and a cardboard sign in his hands walked up to the kids and I and started talking to us. He was mumbling under his breath and speaking sort of fast. We smiled at him, said hello, and then continued to our car.
After we got buckled in and started on our way Carter asks, "Mom, what did that man say?"
Natalie pipes up, "I'll tell you. He said, 'Hey kids, it's a beautiful day - hope you get to enjoy it. God bless.' ...Wow, Mom! I had no idea I could speak Hippie!"
And I was speechless.
