I have been going to swimming lessons, karate class, piano lessons, concerts in the park...lots of time sitting and watching my girls. Sometimes I chat with the other parents, but I like to have my hands busy. I've been sewing some things with felt, fabric and love to just sit and crochet up a few flowers to add to my scrapbooks. Recycle. A couple of weeks ago a sweet Russian woman gave me a bunch of hand-me down clothes, I took a few shirts I knew I'd never wear and cut up the fabric to sew some birds with...
This is the pattern I followed: http://www.spoolsewing.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/birdpattern1-1.pdf
I gave this mobile to my sister Susanna, whose baby, Natalia, was just baptised on Saturday. Here, is a picture of my sister Andrea with Natalia.
We had a nice father's day. So proud of my husband who helped out a couple of people, by giving someone a bike, taking someone who needed clothes shopping, spending a few hours fixing someone's car...and loving me and our girls. May God bless him (he's on the far right)...I took a TON of photos...and I am in some of them.
This weekend, we are driving to the east coast...to a family reunion.
Life is not for the faint of heart, and yet... - It's been 18 days. My Husband and I are weary and fighting faintheartedness. But yet in Christ we have hope. Lord have mercy on us all.
