Yesterday morning started a bit rocky. I want 'ideal'. I start my days with visions of gorgeous fall weather, well-groomed children with fall colored matching outfits, and a beautiful picture session playing at the apple orchard. Picturesque from every angle... perfect weather, perfect smiles and loads of shots to choose from for holiday greetings. What I had was two children who were fighting by 8 am. One wild-haired girl who refused a brush or barrettes. One boy who refused to wear anything but warm-ups and mismatched, striped socks. My super-slow camera that is held together by a hair tie that didn't work for a while (turns out I had the batteries in the wrong way...). Far from a movie scene, and these will certainly NOT be our holiday pictures! I suppose God uses these times to teach me about being satisfied with what I have... Few, if any, people have those movie star photo days, right?!
We did venture to the local (well, if you consider a 40 minute drive local...) apple orchard. It was a bit chilly but overall a great mismatched and uncombed time was had by all.
