Step By Step
by Michael Webb

About four years ago I bought a stepping stone kit to create a special
Mother’s Day gift for Athena.  I set Ashton’s footprints in the
concrete.  He was about one month old at the time.

Last week as Ashton and I were working in the garden we decided we
needed quite a few more stepping stones for a path we were creating.
Instead of paying $10 for each kit like I did the first time, we came
up with a way to make them much cheaper.

I went to Home Depot and purchased a bag of cement and a half a dozen
12 inch plastic drip pans that you put under flower pots (to pour the
concrete in).  Then we went to Michael’s arts and crafts store and
bought several bags of decorator marbles (the flattened kind).

Ashton and I worked together to create stepping stones with Ireland’s
footprints, his hand print, one with an alligator, a cross, star,
swirl, butterfly and several other designs to go in our garden.  We
were able to reuse the plastic pans and one bag of concrete made about
a dozen stepping stones.  The total cost was about $15.

It was a special fun project for Ashton and me.  Athena loves what we
created and years from now we will still have the steps to bring back
the memories.
