{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of everyday life ~

Outside one of the local churches there is a statue of John Paul II.  We were there for The WeatherMan to volunteer for the Knights and so the boys and I wandered a bit to keep them entertained.  And out of trouble. 

Once a month we take part in a group produce buy and here what was in our box.  Oh, and a bag of spinach that somehow missed the photo op (because I took it out and put it behind me while unpacking the rest of it.)  Yum! 

Can you see it?  Sorry I can't turn it rightside up.  The point was to put everything where it belonged.  The Bigger Boy did it all quickly and when I figured out his logic I laughed and laughed. 

Here is the context for the {pretty} picture.  The boys liked checking it all out.  And when they started opening all the votive holders it was time to move on.  I love their curiousness and desire to see how everything works.  But I'd rather they not burn themselves or set themselves on fire.  Or any number of other senarios that I just can't start thinking up or I wont be able to fall asleep tonight because somehow they always know how to out-do anything I might think up to worry about.  The joy of little boys :)

I get nervous around fire (candles, etc.), and I don't have any kids!
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
