Ridiculous, I say, ridiculous! They will learn so much more digging for worms and helping me tend the garden! Don't you think? How much better is it for a child to...for my son, to figure out what's wrong with his vintage Toyota Corolla engine, and for my daughters to bake a new recipe, or design a barbie outfit then sew it by hand.
Don't get me started....
I am working on a post for next Monday, on that date, July 26, 1996 at 8:30 pm, my mom died.
And, Lauren received a custom order for pins, so as long as the customer got them already.... I will post pictures, I didn't want to ruin it for her, cuz she reads my blog. But they are some of her best work, here they are.
The little girls they are for are turning 2 and 4.
And more news I have, at the advice of Rolane from The Vintage Barn, I applied to be a vendor at The Creative Connection event.
I was really nervous to do this, I guess I thought I would be rejected. But they accepted me!!
This event is in Minneapolis, so I get to see my friends and family too! It will be great fun.
So now I have to sew like a mad woman again, because there are 3 1/2 days of selling not just one like Vintage Barn! But with God nothing is impossible!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, praise God!
In preparation for my post Monday I have been picking photos of my mom from old albums, and Sophie was just looking at them and saying "Momma!" "Look"...
So I looked and it was a picture of Josh when he was 1, who is now about to turn 20.
Has anyone had a moment like this? I looked at the photo of my first born, that my last born was showing me. And I thought, WOW. Where is time, who stole it from me?
I had no clue at 19 that I would end up with 5 kids and at 38 I'd have a 3 year old.
I feel overwhelmed and blessed at the same time.
In my own hands I pretty much ruined my life, but yet God took it anyway and made it wonderful...
How great is our God?!
