And these pictures? All about the sticks, Baby! No way I'm going to make all these and not show off my handy work! (BTW, only 1 severe hot glue gun burn and 1 needle stick!)
I put each boys' name on their stick. If you look in the bottom right hand corner of this picture you can see Sam's name.
During the ceremony we tied feathers on their sticks. (I sat up last night gluing feathers together and attaching them to rope.) Each feather's color had a special meaning.
Here's a bit of a close-up of JR's. Of course he had already pulled all the beads and bells off of his during his Lord of the Flies maneuvers. Guess I'll be pulling my needle and thread out again.
