Admittedly I Was In A Bit Of A Funk But I Knowthats No Excuse I Hit Whole Foods On The Way Home From Housegroup Tonight A

Posted by in family

Admittedly, I was in a bit of a funk. But I know…that’s no excuse. I hit Whole Foods on the way home from housegroup tonight as is a normal custom for us since our boys go through a gallon of milk in less than a week, and I am one of those moms who insist her boys drink organic milk and eat organic yogurt.

Our boys had fun walking up to houses and helping themselves to the bowls of candy (Rowan took 5 pieces from one house – but she insisted that it was okay after I told him to put 4 of them back…I guess he has that charm! 🙂 ) Sawyer gets all of Rowan’s hand-me-downs.
