Past times

The kids love being on the wall around our yard. They walk on it, sit on it, and even run on it. Here, they are watching some boys play basket ball in our yard.
This morning, the same 2 had their binoculars out and were happily watching birds from the next wall over. The 2 neighboring yards in this direction are still under construction and there is no one living there yet.
 Anna has been learning bead work from our neighbors. They are working on the tops and sides of square shaped hats that new brides wear.

After the embroidery and bead work is finished, you  put a flour/ water mixture on the bottom to make it stiffen. Then, you cut if off. Then, our neighbors give the pieces to another neighbor who assembles the hats.


  1. Wendy,

    Thanks--as always-- for going to effort to post. I'm so grateful to God that I got to visit last month so that places pictured are REAL to me. I love you and your family deeply and prAy for you often.

    With love,

  2. Wendy,

    Would it be possible for me to buy some of the bead work from Anna? I'm very, very interested in creating a framed wall hanging. The work is truly art!!!! Please give Anna a big hug, and when she flashes that beautiful smile of hers, tell her that her Auntie Denise truly misses her and LOVES.

    Looking forward to the permanence of Heaven,
