Update

There is much to update about!! First of all, I made a hat out of Wal Mart sacks.
Here I am wearing the hat. Very stylish, I know.
Second, I ran the farthest I ever have!! FIFTEEN AND A HALF MILES!! It was great. I am SO glad that I had GU, which is energy gel. It tastes very good, actually. I may run fifteen miles again this Saturday.... or thirteen. Oh, and I had to get up at five thirty in the morning!!! (daddy and I were running with a group in Corinth) I usually get up at least two hours later!! But I was okay.
Third, we just got back from our grandparents' house. Mims has TONS of fabric, and she suggested that we crochet with it. Here's what I made...
A blue purse... with ribbon...

and buttons. A smaller pink and green purse...



and an even smaller pouch.With stars on the back.


Aren't they pretty?

My fingers got VERY sore from ripping and crocheting fabric. But it was worth it!! We had a lot of fun at our granparents' house.
That's all for now!!

Hey,
Hmm.. I really want Lil to win, or hmm.. there was someone else I liked. I really liked Megan. oh well...

Olivia,
Thanks for telling me to check your blog to see the hat! What a talented young lady you are! I'm really impressed.

My girls and I enjoyed visiting with you and Julie yesterday. Hope you both enjoy the book. I can't wait to hear how your race goes!

Is your hat comfy?

I like to make rugs out of fabric. Bags made out of fabric are very sturdy. I like the pink and green one that you made.
