These two will go far some day!!!! After a seriously intense game of "Animal Cops" they moved on to fighting with bears?!?! A full bin of material scraps and a full imagination led to this pair of invalids who didn't fare so well in the bear brawl...apparently!!!!
More than a year ago I began collecting shoes for Guatemala. It started very small with just a few pair at a time from friends and family. Then Mari's Girl Scout troop decided to adopt the shoe drive as their service project for the year and one thing led to another and suddenly I had 1700+ pair of shoes in my dining room!!!! It was a huge relief to pack them up and ship them out and since then I've gone back to the few pair at a time pace. The thing is, the Girl Scout leader had placed a blurb in our church's Sunday bulletin which has caused some of the members of my parish to label me the "shoe lady" and periodically I find bundles of shoes on my front porch with the note, "for Guatemala".
