Birds and the Bees
Thoughts: One monday evening, many years ago my hubby and I gathered our 3 kids together for family home evening. This was not just your ordinary family home evening. This one was special. This home evening was about the birds and the bees. The kids and I sat together on the couch. My hubby pulled the kitchen chair in front of us. The kids were wondering what was going on.
