First Day of School

14 Sep

Hard to believe that H. is starting at her “big” school today and that J. will be at Montessori school without her. To make the transition a bit easier for both of them, I made them bunny buddies using leftover yarn.

H. has named hers “Pom Pom.” J. named his “Vaca.”  I think that may be the first Spanish word I have heard J. say.  He know’s  his new buddy is a bunny, but he still likes to say is it a cow.

Today, H. choose to wear the Birthday Party Dress uniform version I made for her.

I must admit I am still a bit tearful since this is such a big milestone. It has given me a chance to reflect on a few of my favorite things about H. and J.:

  • H.’s favorite band right now is Camera Obscura.  I often hear her belting out “French Navy.”
  • H. still refers to escalators as “moving stairs.”
  • H. loves to do water colors with her dad after J. goes to bed.
  • I get a kick out of J.’s obsession with baseball and his insistence that he sleeps with baseball cards from his dad’s youth.
  • The fact that J. talks nonstop when his sister is not around to speak for him.
  • I love hearing J. refer to H. as “sissy.”

Please pardon me, while to go and get more tissue….

    Love all your creations, you must be a busy lady!
