Grocery Store Pit Stops

We took a family shopping trip to Food Lion. They have these really fun carts that the kids can ride in with "cars" in the front of the buggy. Eli and Savannah got to ride up in the "race car" front while Seth sat in the usual seat in the buggy. Jacob is too big to ride, but no problem! Every time we stopped to pick up a grocery item, he would run around the "race car" doing a 4 tire change and fuel. As Chris would start pushing the buggy again, Jacob would pump his fist in the air with the imaginary gas can and yell, "Go, go, go!" On one aisle we happened to pass another family with the "police car" buggy. The little girl riding in the "police car" was rubbing her hand carefully over the sticker "wheels" tricking her ride out with some fancy rims. It's interesting to notice the family influences when I watch children play. I hope that what my children learn from our family's influence is kindness, honesty, patience, integrity, courage, wisdom. "...Encourage the young men to live wisely in all they do. And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good deeds of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching (Titus 2:7)."
