It has happened on more than one occasion, that once we get to where we are going, I will realize that Sam does not have shoes on! Most of the time I just let him go barefoot....even to church.
So recently I made two little checklists of things to remember when we are going to the two places we go most often: 1. church 2. cross country practice--both lists include Sam's shoes.
Last night as we were getting ready for church, I reminded the children to look at the list and make sure we didn't forget anything (Bibles, lessons, Sam's shoes, put the dog out). I was the last person to get in the van, and I asked everyone if they got everything on the list. "Yes Mam," was their reply.
I even asked, "Does Sam have shoes?"
As they all file out of the van and are walking into the church building I see Sam's shoes.
But at least he was wearing shoes!
