Many years ago when Chuck and I first moved to Washington we used to love spending Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market with our children. Back then, we lived in a two bedroom duplex with a postage stamp sized yard. On Saturday mornings we often got bored….yes, you read that right, bored. With only three, and then four, kids and a small house, there was very little to do on the weekends. The days were long. So we’d pack up or adorable kiddos and wander around the stalls. We’d buy fresh produce, listen to the local musicians and just enjoy the day. Now its a rare weekend that someone isn’t working, has Boy Scouts, errands that need to be run and yard work caught up on. Life if busier now, and we are rarely looking to kill time until afternoon naps (what are those?)
A few weeks ago I got the chance to once again enjoy the Farmer’s Market. This time Tilly was a vendor, selling her photo cards and tie dye shirts.
Never mind that it was cold and rainy. She came away with about $60 toward her missions trips and, more amazingly, met a teen girl who is spending her summer in China, also with Teen Missions International!
As of today, Tilly still has $1006 to raise and Judah $779. Both have been working like crazy. Tilly just sent in $1,000 she has earned babysitting, doing yard work and selling her products and Judah sent off $400 he’s made doing yard work. I am so proud of my hardworking kids! I am going to post this once, and only once, but if you are interested in contributing to either mission trip you can donate online. If you click on this link and choose “Team Member” and put either Judah Bergeron or Tilly Bergeron in the comments. If you do contribute, make sure to send me an email so we can get thank you notes off to you!
Have a great weekend!
