Insert cricket chirping here.
We could talk about the frustration of not having any control over the situation
Or the frustration that results from not being able to shake that frustration and give it to God already.
Or we could talk about the pumpkin patch. Which we've been to twice in the past week. Because getting out of the house is an excellent coping strategy when dealing with frustration.
Our first trip was a relaxed affair, as it was a week day and there wasn't anyone there. The kids took their time, marveling over the different types of gourds and pumpkins, and even cooperated for some photos....
it was a good day.
