Sarah Simpson Column: U-pick a family favourite adventure

The other weekend my son insisted he join me in running out to a local supermarket to get the groceries I'd ordered online for pick-up. Aside from the occasional haul at the farm stores and such, we've been ordering online almost exclusively since March, I'd say. I don't for a second believe this is unique. It's just how things seem to be in the New World. As much as possible I try to keep my kids out of the stores. Not just because of COVID-19, though that's a major factor, but because I always seem to spend more money when they're with me. That's not unique either.
