Since our girls are growing up and getting bigger it is getting harder and harder to find clothing that is appropriate anymore. Honestly, retailers are making young girls look way too old for their ages. A friend of mine on Facebook made a comment about not being able to find a decent swimsuit for her little girl and I SO agreed with her statement. The first trip we took to Massachusetts we stayed with a precious family that had two daughters. While we were there she showed me their modest bathing suits and I was just fascinated with them! I had never seen anything like it. We don't go to public pools since we've had our pool and I haven't ordered one of these for the girls, but I would love to order one to have on hand. Anna is swimming with a swim team and while they've been practicing she has worn her bathing suit with the skirt. Soon when their swim meets begin she'll have to wear the team suit (which aren't that bad), but she would much rather wear something like this:

I am very thankful that both of our girls take modesty very seriously and know what is decent and good! If we are to represent Christ then we need to be fully aware of not only what comes from within, but also what covers us on the outside.
1 Timothy 2:9-10
"And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes. For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do."
