A Girl and Her Purse

Anna owns a Liz Claiborne "real" purse that was handed down to her by a sweet lady at our church. It has become a favorite possession and it goes out the door every time she does. The purse even made it to the tot lot the other day. As we were leaving and I was loading them onto the Joovy I said, "Got your purse?" "Yep, ready for anything!" was the reply. I just laughed out loud.

The purse is a mystery to her little friends at church, the closest of whom are little boys. One in particular is always asking her what she's got in that purse of hers. She'll reliably say, "Just everything I need."

And what does she "need"? Well, a Hello Kitty wallet with some old coupons in it, about 3 pairs of sunglasses, a phone, some keys, a few extra Joshua toys (because she's a good sister like that), and various flotsam. I pray that purse never gets left anywhere. Heaven forbid we be left unprepared for anything without everything we need!

Thanks, Aunt Mary!

So even if you have a nice camera, that doesn't mean you automatically have a file full of awesome photos , ready for the impulsive blog-posting on a hot afternoon. No, you actually have to remember to bring your camera along on trips, take it out of its bag, turn it on, look for cute subjects, and of course, take the darn pictures! We know this in our heads, but have yet to practice it. Aunt Mary knows this. She is a true artist with a camera. She feels sorry for us and loves our children. We love Aunt Mary.
