it has been a ridiculously & somewhat embarrassingly long time since i posted. this summer has been incredibly full and amazing, and time has gotten away from me. i have neglected my blog, and everyone else's too. but school started today, and i am finding myself with just susie grace in the morning, and peace and quiet in the afternoon while she naps, so i anticipate finding some time to think, clean the house, and hopefully blog.
this morning before school.... the little ones' hair hadn't been combed yet because they leave for school much later than the bigger ones. we now have: a senior, a junior, a 3rd grader, and a kindergartner.
little man has been counting down the days until kindergarten starts ever since preschool graduation on May 8th. i love having my kids home with me, but this little one, and his sister just older need a lot more stimulation and social interaction that their older sisters did. is it just personality differences, i find myself wondering, or is it because they are different genders from each other and have a 3 year space, rather than a one year space. is it combination of these differences, or is there more to it? or less?
first i picked out some bright and lively blues and greens, but then remembered these flannels i have in my shop - woolies and shadowplay flannels from maywood. it was a delight to put this together. and now my mind is full of more possibilities for these fabrics. i made a small pillow case from the red and cream windowpane plaid print.
