But before we head to church we always stop at Starbucks. We pull up to the drive-thru speaker & my husband Kelly orders.
"Welcome to Starbucks...this is Kelly."
"Hi Kelly, it's Kelly."
"Oh HI KELLY! What can I get you guys today?"
By then the kids are smiling big because they LOVE Miss Kelly & Bo usually has his window down by now to say hello. She quickly became a friend to our whole family. If she is not there...Bo gets a little grumpy & puts his window up. When we pull up to the window we all chat with Kelly while our FIVE drinks quickly get made up.
I always get a little embarrassed & wonder what the people behind us think when she hands us all of our drinks AND our usual 1 slice of lemon bread & one slice of banana bread. I always feel a little like a clown car :)
Rocco grunts & groans until I get his hot chocolate safely into his sippy cup & then...a few minutes of silence...but just a few as the boys don't come up for air until their drinks are gone.
But the second Bo's drink is gone it is back to goofiness.
And almost always a few rounds of singing some old country songs together on the top of our lungs. Tom T. Hall's THAT SONG IS DRIVING ME CRAZY is a favorite, you might need it off of itunes :)
Then almost too quickly we arrive at church & everyone piles out & heads their seperate ways.
I love to walk a step behind the kids as Annie enjoys walking the boys to their Sunday School classes.
Sunday Mornings make me smile.
