On my birthday, I received a phone call from a friend for whom I used to babysit. She had had a garage sale that day, clearing out her childrens' clothing, and wondered if I would like to go through the remaining boys clothes and find some things for Edmund? My mom and I went over yesterday and she showed us into the garage. There were so many adorable things, it was like walking into a children's boutique! (A very hot, muggy children's boutique with bikes and cars all around us, but nonetheless...) :-P I came away with two large bags full of high-quality 12 month to 2T sizes, which will go a long way toward clothing Edmund through the rest of the summer, fall, and (hopefully) winter. Not only that, but her tastes in children's clothing are similar to mine (classic and traditional). God is good!
[Doesn't this look like the perfect outfit for a boy named Edmund?]
