Thankful Thursday - Hand Me Downs!
This may look like 6 bags of trash to you but it is 6 bags full of hand me downs! We have been very blessed to get a ton of clothes, toys, equipment, etc for our kids from our loving & generous friends. I'm so thankful for all of it! But recently, it has kind of slowed down. Not because our friends changed, but because have you ever seen clothes after a 5/6/7 year old boy wears them for a while? Yeah, not pretty. ;)
I was thrilled when a few weeks ago one of my friends at the gym asked me if I needed boys clothes. She has twin boys & was starting to clear out her old things. At first I said no, thinking she had stuff for Zak. Then I asked what she had. When she said mostly size 5/6/7 boys stuff I almost left class right then to get it.
I didn't expect to get so much. There are all kinds of clothes (still haven't sorted thru them, that's the project for this weekend), a few games & toys (one of which a map of the world puzzle that AJ will LOVE) and some boots & shoes. We just realized we had no boots for our boys & they were on my shopping list for this week but not anymore.
I'm SO thankful for all of this stuff & can't wait to get through it this weekend & start using it! Thank you so much Lisa for our "new" stuff!
