Another Sneak Peak, revealed
I think this was my favorite of the gifts I gave this Christmas. I have two nieces: my brother's daughter is 8 and my sister's daughter is almost 8. This summer while I saw them during beach week they were both really interested in the sewing projects I was working on. So for Christmas I made them each a little embroidery kit. My favorite part of the kit is the little bag it all gets stashed in. I just love the way it came out! It seems the kits have gone over well. Both nieces like them...their mothers however (the ones that will have to thread and rethread the needles and fix snarls of knots) I'm not as sure about...
Today Andrew starts his first day at the new school.
-He has already practiced walking around in his new backpack (as has Isaac for that matter).
-We are borrowing a lunchbox from a friend until his shows up in the mail and the borrowed lunchbox has already received all kinds of love. Andrew hugged it tightly to his chest while he watched a DVD yesterday. Who needs teddy bears, anyway?
-And you've already seen his communication notebook.
- Andrew went to bed on time last night with no signs of "I can't sleep" anxiety.
- And I spent the night tossing and turning dreaming odd dreams of packing lunches. Packing lunches as though our very lives depend on it.
Perhaps I should go pack that lunch right now.
Have a wonderful Monday!
