If you thought having their children play at conflicting times is a headache for Lisa and John Roberson, think again! Accoridng to John, it ‘couldn’t get any better’ because its something that’s ‘keeps him moving.’ While Lisa said to My San Antonio, that they ‘stopped making plans and just go with the moment and they figure it out as they go.”
