and I did not walk today.  I went shopping in the local thrift stores for clothing for my adopted children in the Church play.  There are, I think, 19 children in the play. At least 15 are girls and most of them are picked up by the Church bus.  We never see their parents.  The girls need dresses for the play, no jeans or slacks because it is supposed to be 1930.  Most of the girls do not have a dress they can wear.  This made me feel bad.  Mrs. Preacher has a huge stash of thrift store dresses for them to choose from, but they are old women looking dresses.  I told my three girls I would look for dresses for them.  I now have dresses for my three, one of Helen's and a couple of other big girl dresses.  And I am taking some of Hannah's dresses for the little girls.  Helen says it is all silly, but still it made me feel bad.  I know girls don't wear dresses much anymore, but not to have a dress at all? And, I guess even worse, not to have someone at home that would make sure you had a dress if you needed on for some reason.

And, if you liked the barbed wire cross I made and thought I might make  you one, think again.  I have made three.  It really does not take that long to make one, maybe 30 to 45 minutes, but it was a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I may try some with just wire, no beads, or maybe not.

Wow that is a lot of children they pick up for church.
Hope the play goes well and everyone enjoys it.
