My youngest son, Ryan, would have a fit if he knew I was talking about him,
and even more if he knew I was about to post his picture.
But I just can't help myself.
He is just weeks away from earning his Eagle Scout.
One of the requirements is that you do a project that will help
an organization or the community. My older son painted several fire hydrants
throughout the city for his project, and many of the boys in our area clear trails
in the mountains. When I asked Ryan what he wanted to do he said that he
wanted to do something for the children in the cancer unit at the hospital
where Kristen was treated. He has decided to make 24 activity bags for the
children. He can receive help, but he has to totally
be in charge of the project. When Kristen had her bone marrow transplant she received
a special blanket. He also wants to make several blankets for the
transplant patients. Tonight I taught Ryan to sew a bag.
I was actually surprised at how straight all of
his seams were. He made 2 bags tonight, one with Sponge Bob and the other
Dora the Explorer. He did a really Great job.
He is excited to get the rest of the bags finished and then to go
shopping for items to fill the bags.
I'll keep you posted and show the rest of the bags as soon as he finishes them.
I can already tell that the children are going to LOVE these bags.
