Being completely ditzy, today we missed the pick-up day for groceries for the local mission for Thanksgiving. We talked to the guy picking everything up and he said we could drop off our bags at the mission. Great!! So, this afternoon we packed up the kids and my mom and headed out to the store.
Well, there we were, putting gluten filled stuffing, etc. into our bags and my kids are reading the labels. “These aren’t gluten-free, Mom! Get them out of our cart!” Yes, that is true, but it’s not for us. Still, my kids keep reading labels. Do I have them trained or what? They even picked out more healthy types of cereal and extra big bags of rice so whoever gets our bags will get extra food that is not “all sugary, ‘cause that isn’t much of a favor to somebody else.” How sweet are my kiddies? Then they did also put in a treat, “’cause a treat is fun to look forward to.”
I had the best time with them picking out their stuff. They each had a bag to fill and one shoe box to fill for Operation Christmas Child. This is the big drop off week! It is so amazing seeing your kids take this so seriously and think about each item they are putting in their box.
