Goodwill

When my father came to visit last weekend, he gave us a little bit of money which we promptly designated for some much needed children's clothing. Most of Mika's and Sam's jeans are too short. Most of Mika's shirts are too short, but that usually can't be helped as she has a very long torso. Neither of the big kids have any summer clothing at all; they haven't been too happy about wearing warmer clothing on our warmer days!

So, we took Papa's money and visited our local goodwill in hopes of finding some summer clothing that fit. We were incredibly blessed and found much more than we usually do. Here's what we brought home:

Josh
- Seahawks jersey
- Scooby Doo shirt

Sammy
- 3 pairs of shorts
- 2 t-shirts
- 1 athletic shirt (that super sleek "duo dry", "power core" material)

Mika
- 4 pairs of shorts
- 1 hooded summer top
- 2 tanks

We averaged $3.85 per item...which isn't too bad, especially considering that they were all in near new condition. Two of the items were actually new with tags.

We also discovered that Sam really, really likes that sleek, smooth athletic material, whatever it is. Now I know what to look for when shopping for him. I've never seen him react so favorably towards clothing.
