You guys, sorry. I’ve not been around lately. We have spent the last few weeks soaking up the last bit of summer, you know, now that we have actual summer weather! We had to pack in the fun before my big girl started kindergarten!
I took a break from my usual sewing of knit fabric to make her the dinosaur dress of her dreams! (not that she doesn’t already have a knit dinosaur dress………….or a cotton one……..) She requested a new dinosaur dress for her first day of school and who am I to argue? Especially when we found this super cute fabric and buttons at Hobby Lobby. The pattern is Simplicity 1379 View C with sleeves. Pockets. Enough said.
It was a hazy morning and the bus comes early. Almost 40 minutes earlier than we had to leave for preschool last year. But we made the trek down the sidewalk with time to spare. Technically the bus stop is our side yard so we didn’t have to go far.
She gave momma one last smile and wave and off she went. And this momma barely held it together. Thank goodness I had Pumpkin home with me to yell “Now let’s go pway!!!!!” She was not nearly as emotional about Cupcake’s new adventure.
She was returned home to me a few hours later and she still had that big smile on her face. She made two new friends and supposedly even has a boyfriend already!!! Social butterfly. Though she said the day was mostly boring because they had to do a bunch of first day stuff she is still excited to go back today.
I hope she never loses that spunk. Even when there are no new dinosaur dresses to wear, shiny shoes to skip in, a light backpack with no homework in it, or Chick-fil-A lunch dates when she gets home. She has big dreams. I hope it stays that way.
