  3. great facts! thanks for sharing! and thats so awesome that you guys are foster parents. I want to adopt kids some day!! and I have yet to see the ocean and I am older than 19 so your doing better than me in that department. and I so agree with on the night owl thing. I hate morning with a deep passion.
