Oliver will be joining the coutless others who have ventured out of Pre-K and into K. We are getting prepped and ready for that day next week when I drop him off in green shorts instead of blue shorts and I get to try and figure out all of his friends names again. Focus, boy! Focus! I guess I have to get ready for homework now. I have heard from other friends who are a year ahead of me in this adventure that they are much more busy with their Kindergarten school tasks than they ever thought they would be. We’re ready. A+ all the way for this kid.
Last night I was trying to work on pinning my blocks for the MIL quilt, when precious daughter wanted to be on top of my every move. I gave her the task to pick out her favorite pink fabrics from her personal collection and I would whip them up into a ‘pony’ doll quilt. She loves to follow orders, this one. But – every action requires a form of game play. I can’t just be handed the fabric – I have to clap my hands like ‘this’ and catch the fabric before it hits the floor and spin around, etc… Before we turned off the lights for the night, I had the doll quilt finished and Purple Pony was tucked in.
