Sunday Best

As we were getting ready to paint the fence...

Me: Put on junky clothes, boys.

Alex: Like what?

Me: Clothes we don't really like...stuff we don't like wearing... or things that don't fit quite right.

Alex: We're going to paint the fence in our church clothes?

Nothing like honesty! I do seem to remember a lot of my church clothes being very uncomfortable growing up. Itchy too. I don't know how my brothers felt about them, but they went through a lot considering that our church had a school attached with a big playground and while Moms and Dads had coffee after mass, kids went out to play and stains abounded. Sometimes I think my parents would have liked it better if those stains came from say, white-washing a fence, than from wrestling in the mud!
