i sincerely hope these situations will help me tone down my own drama so as not to create a whole family of freakouts.

now i am sweating, a lot, and my bread is being squished by the apple juice, no one will get back in the cart, and i have to unload all over again. today, during the second attempt to pay for the groceries and get the heck out of the store, bear managed to open the kit kat he found, conveniently, right by the check outs. the cashier is laughing at how adorable he is licking his lips and tossing away the wrapper so he can get at the kit kat. i am frantically trying to add up the groceries and make comments not involving swearing at the kids.
at the end of it all, i had to put back the milky ways and apple juice (aldi's does not take credit cards and i ran out of cash), abandon the cashier to chase the boys down who ran outside while i was choosing the groceries to leave behind, smile sweetly at the people behind me who were talking about the amount of "spit and vinegar" in my children, and strap the boys in the carseats while thanking the lord that we made it out of there with food for the week and both kids.
nothing extraordinary in this trip to aldi's, in fact it is par for the course of our grocery shopping escapades. however, recollecting all the efforts and emotions that go into our weekly stash of food makes me really appreciate being home again.

painting a picture of a "pretty street where all the people can go on". all of his paintings are streets and people walking these days... weird
bear, well, bear was eating the paint.
i think it is completely evident that the real masterpieces are the boys themselves.
fearfully and wonderfully made by our awesome God.
