A New Beginning

It’s that day in our neighborhood.  The day parents are supposed to look forward to with joyous anticipation.  I feel a little bittersweet about it this year.  This will be our first year that A will be in our local public school.  For kindergarten and first grade, we were part of a parent partnered public school program that provided classes part-time on campus, and parents taught part-time at home.  While E will be doing K in that program this year, for second grade we felt that our local school would be the best choice for A.  Although I am confident in the decision we made, it was hard for me to watch her go this morning.

Here she is, looking excited about heading off for school.

And off she goes:


Yeah, I’m already making changes.

I’m that kind of person.  I like to rearrange the furniture in my house.  I sometimes sew one thing and then tear it apart to turn it into something else.  And likewise, with my blog, I’m making a few changes.  All the pictures made for a lot of scrolling, so, to save your fingers a bit, I put the tutorials I’ve posted each into their own page.  You can reach them by clicking on the appropriate tab at the top of the blog.  Also, months and years down the road (should I continue blogging that long) they’ll still be easy to find.

Thanks to all those who’ve clicked and commented so far.  I hope my little projects inspire you to try something new of your own.
