In every way try to please Him...

One big problem with being called to the Sunbeams is that I have one long skirt. And if I'm going to be with 3-year-olds for 2 hours each Sunday, I'm going to have to stop wearing my cute, adorable, wonderful, precious knee-length skirts to church. (And I'll start wearing them to work more often.) I'm going to have to buy more long skirts. And wearing long skirts and still looking fashionable is going to be tough. Old Navy currently has nothing. And I don't want to spend more than Old Navy prices on long skirts. So I checked out J. C. Penney. Not promising.
When I mentioned my dilemma to my carpool group, a woman in her 60s said that she had some of her mother's old skirts that she could give me. She assured me that they were youthful and pretty.

She brought them today, which was so kind and sweet of her, and I really do appreciate the thought. But they're not exactly my style. However, I'm sure that on a 90 year old or even a 60 year old, they'd be very youthful.


I think I'm going to need to schedule a shopping trip with my mother-in-law. Only she can help me find age-appropriate, long, and kid-friendly.

I wear knee-length skirts to church all the time despite having a toddler. Are you just worried about flashing someone if you're down on the floor with them?

Of course those skirts are youthful. The last time I would have worn them is when I was 9. I wanted to suggest a store for long skirts, but I feel like it would be a shameless sales pitch because I work there.

i think you should go with the first one.

I love the first one!

I think with your mad skills you should just make some skirts. Most skirts just require basic sewing skills.

Are you going to update us on your first day teaching?

Those skirts are sweet! They remind me a little of the shirt you're wearing in your either Grade 7 or 8 school pic. Like I said, sweet....

I can't really pull off wearing a knee-length skirt with an almost 3 year old either. I got my cute long skirts at Eddie Bauer. They were a little pricier than Old Navy though. Good luck!

Kohls in American Fork usually has longer skirts that are cute. Or Urban Trends in the mall has decently-priced mid-calf skirts that are very cute and trendy. Unless you're looking for that smashing Best Western-esque floral print in your picture... you'll have to rent a time machine to find one of those, I think.

Also, this is weird but I have gotten the cutest skirts at DI.
