"Our team is called the Young Boys. We grew up in this neighborhood, so we wanted to give the local kids something to do after school. We bought them balls and shoes with our own money, and for game days, we go around and beg local churches for a place to play. We want to keep them very busy so they don’t have time for bad things. We don’t want to see anyone on our team wandering the streets. We practice every other day. The girls have their practice on our days off."

Idle Wife writes:

These homemade bath bombs fizz delightfully, add a very subtle tint and scent to the water, and soften my poor winter-dry legs amazingly well.
