Today was Holden’s last day of preschool. Bittersweet, because he loves and will miss his friends and teachers (and I will miss those few precious one-child-only parenting hours), but also supersweet that he’ll now be home with Esme and me everyday. He was only attending two days a week, but still, it makes a difference. The irony that this week marks the beginning of school season for many school-goers is not lost on me. We always seem to do things a little backwards around here.
In any case, my babe graduated from preschool today! To celebrate, I gave him a huge hug, told him how proud of him we were and…proceeded to give him the worst haircut of his life.
Aaaack! Oh well. It’ll grow back and will probably advance his social standing in the 4-year-old freaky haircut club by a few measures.
As for gifts for his wonderful teachers, I asked Holden if he wanted to do anything special to say goodbye and as an alternative to his suggested “invite them over to swim in our (kiddie) pool” I suggested making pillows instead. So Holden drew his familiar T Rex renditions on fabric and we incorporated some teacher-appropriate patterns into these pillows.
On another sweet note, I have been awarded!
Jessica from Turkey Cookies nominated me for this pretty Wylde Woman award. She brightens my day as well, so thank you Jessica!
And Amy from Park City Girl kindly nominated me for a Brillante weblog award. Check out the sweet scrap quilt she just made!
So I'm awarding Amy the Wylde Woman award, Jessica the Brillante weblog award (not to be snarky - they truly deserve awards!) and Tracey, Simply and Tanya BOTH awards since they're quite the Brillante Wylde bloggers themselves!
Sweet dreams and happy awarding!
