SWINGING


SWINGING

Here is a new statue that was placed at the rear entrance to our new preschool building at church. This statue and the one following were given to the church by an anonomyous donor. Obviously someone who loves children very much. Maybe someone who has 5 grandchildren......anyway. they are beautiful. I enlisted the help of my friend Bill to get this one moved into place. This is a new little tree, and my hope is that the tree will grow around it and eventually it will look as if the swing is in the tree. Of course, it's God's tree and He can shape it any way He wants, but maybe He will like my plan. Of course, I will have to move some of those plants around the little boy, cause I really do not believe he's gonna grow any taller...even if I do pray about it. :)

I LOVE these statues!! They just kind of outdo the donation our school got last year - a park bench made out of recycled plastic grocery bags donated by the Giant grocery chain. It weighs a TON!

And I just cracked up at your comment about the little boy not getting any taller, even if you pray about it!!!!

Those statues look familiar for some reason...maybe they're in your photo album and I saw them before now or something. Anyway, they are adorable. I laughed at Jean's comment about the donation they got last year though...not that it's funny...just that, "They just kind of outdo the donation our school got last year - a park bench made out of recycled plastic grocery bags donated by the Giant grocery chain. ..." :-) That's funny!
