The Long Awaited

Moccasins that is.  Joshua has been wanting to make a pair of moccasins for a good long while.  He reminded me that once I did make him some out of a paper bag.  Today we finally made some "real" ones out of an old leather jacket.  He was SO pleased!  (He said, "Boo-yah!" -one of his current favorite expressions)  THEN, after running around on the pavement a bit he discovered the soles were already disintegrating!  Apparently this leather (suede, really)  wasn't sturdy enough to hold up to the rigors of boyhood.  So,it is back to the drawing board.  Tonight I promised to patch them with something- maybe a trusty wool sweater- but am going to seek out something more permanent and Indian like.  

And from yesterday, the rocket launch!
