Sunday, June 18

Lazy day...

We're having a nice mellow Sunday here. We barbecued after church. Dad and the kids swam for awhile this afternoon. I took some pictures of them splashing. Then I did some photo editing while listening to this (which I read about at Amy’s Humble Musings and at Enjoy the journey.) Wow...thought provoking.

I wanted to show you this adorable little bag made by my 16 year old. She made it from scraps left from cutting a pair of jeans down for shorts. She wove the strap herself, and stitched the word 'Aloha' on the front of the bag, and added a couple of beads for button fasteners. Fun when a kid can get an idea and come up with a neat project like this without paying a cent.

That's an awesome purse, and all the more precious for having done it herself!

Love the bag---glad you listened to Voddie, wasn't that thought provoking?

I think I'm going to listen to it again a second time.

I think it would be great for more pastors, youth pastors and parents to listen to that message, Amy. We're blessed to be a part of a church that celebrates children and large families, and a youth program that sees its job as a help to the parents, but so many are as described by the pastor speaking.

Thanks for sharing the link.

Don't you love it when one of your kids shows a creative streak like this? What a sweet purse and you know she's sooo proud of it. She should be!

Great purse!

As for Voddie's sermon, I feel very grateful to be part of a church that still loves and promotes large families. :o)

OK- I am addicted to purses...its a funny thing about me that people find surprising- because I don't come across that way- but My mom and sister and I all love them- and even have a saying when we are together "gotta getta bag!" So- I loved this post! Could she make me a nice big denim diaper bag??? I found when I came home with the boys we were missing a few things- diaper pail, diaper bag, bottles, diapers...was kind of funny actually- walking around in a daze with a poopy diaper in my hand wondering if I should really put it in the kitchen garbage can...seriously- she could sell those on ebay!
