Day 38: Thrift Stores

My wife took the kids to a local second hand thrift store the other day looking for good deals on clothes, etc. They grow so fast that it doesn't seem worth it to by new stuff, especially for summer play clothes. The girls were rather pleased to come home with some new dress-up gowns and a pair of Chuck Taylor Converse shoes for each of them. Our youngest daughter was so excited about the shoes that when I found her in the kitchen during the middle of the night getting a drink of water, she had taken the time to put on her new shoes before coming out of her room. Actually, I wonder if she slept with them on??? It wouldn't surprise me. Anyway, I'm grateful for thrift stores and anything that can bring so much happiness to one of my girls.
