fresh off the
family bike ride.

smelling stinky +
ready for some ice cream.

never underestimate fairway’s capacity
for spin (the pat robertson sign, anyone?)
for humor (the ‘slow elevator’ + cheesemonger valentines, meat counter guys signs?)

here’s what the New Sign [propaganda]
hanging behind the deli counter reads:

‘that a deli this remarkable is
within this enormous market is
just one of the things about Fairway
that keeps those of us working here

i’ve always thought of the
deli guys as ‘impassioned.’

‘i believe that God has made me and all creatures;
that He has given me my body and soul,
eyes, ears, and all my limbs, my reason,
and all my senses, and still preserves them;

in addition thereto, clothing and shoes,
meat and drink, house and homestead,
wife and children, fields, cattle, and all my goods;

that He provides me richly and daily with all that i
need to support this body and life,
protects me from all danger, and
guards me and preserves me from all evil;

and all this out of pure, fatherly,
divine goodness and mercy, without any merit
or worthiness in me; for all which i owe it to Him
to thank, praise, serve, and obey Him.

this is most certainly true.’

-martin luther on the first article
of the apostle’s creed.

baby elle

[betsy thinks it’s ‘baby L’
and keeps wondering aloud,
‘i wonder what her real name is?’]

ps –
i’m overthemoon excited about
all of our kiddos who come home
from camp today.

from cub scout camp + from greenwood hills + from…

welcome home, sweetpeas.
