Book Bag



I was 'chatting' with my daughter in SA on our Blackberries. She mentioned that her son needed a book bag before he could bring home a book from the school library. His classmates had theirs when they were in kindergarten but because Joe went to a different kindergarten he didn't have one and the lady who made them was no longer around. I asked dimensions etc and what colour he would like as I went through in my mind what heavy fabric I had already...I could only think of a piece of orange twill when the answer came back, "He would like orange please." PTL! I asked if he would like his name on and the answer was "Yes and a boat please" I love how God is interested in every little detail of our lives, even matching up what colour book bag we want with what colour fabric our Grandma has in her stash!
I made the bag double layered with a velcro strip across the opening. The last photo below is of Joe saying goodbye to his teacher as he leaves school one day. I would love to be a fly on the wall listening to what he is saying to her :)

How amazing to be able to go to school in flip flops. My own g/children in NZ were told "hats are compulsory but shoes are optional!" - most go barefoot throughout the summer.
Lovely bookbag - lucky Joe.

This has to be one of my very favorite posts of all times! I love the God of big and little details, and how He led you to create once again, and how you made a little guy, so happy. The picture of him and his teacher, is precious.
