Day #71: Give Hand-Me-Downs

Day #71: Give Hand-Me-Downs 1

Today, we spent most of the day with friends. They have two kids who are roughly the same ages as our girls so everyone had a great time.

We ate pizza together for lunch at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. It was like a giant indoor greenhouse - full of flowers, water fountains, and restaurants.

Then, we all ate dinner together in our fifth wheel - fajitas, homemade bread, and vanilla ice cream for dessert.

There is a shelf in our fifth wheel where we store things that we plan to give away. It is always filling up with new stuff. Before our friends came over, we picked out the clothes that would fit their 4-year-old daughter. A princess rain jacket, water shoes, and a pair of pants.

We try to give hand-me-downs whenever possible. Kids grow so fast; it seems like they are always needing new clothes.

Periodically, a family gives us a bag or two of clothes for our girls and we are always grateful.

Do you like getting & giving hand-me-downs?

Our family spent 2011 traveling the USA in an RV, striving to intentionally "give every day" for the glory of God. We interviewed CEOs of nonprofits and served alongside over 40 organizations and churches.

Our Pledge

We hereby pledge:

- To spend intimate, quantity time with our family.
