… ‘cos I sorta forgot to actually take a specific random shot. And that could be considered random, right?!
I forgot because I was having way too much fun. Shhhh. Don’t say that too loud though, ok?
First, it was First Day of School time. After dropping Mr 3 off to Kindy, Mr 6 and I wandered up to the school. We were there in plenty of time and it was so funny to see the older kids lined up eagerly in their rows a good 20 minutes before they needed to be. Keen or what? At 10 to 9 the bell goes; a little earlier than usual so that the sorting assembly can begin. We are introduced to the teachers again, and told of some minor changes that are taking place. I guess to accomodate the various age groups as they go through the years. Mr 6 is in a 2/3 composite class and is quite happy to be there. Some of his friends are in the straight year 2 class so that’s a little bit of a bummer for him. However, we were told that some movement could be expected after the first term. Not too sure who will be affected or not, so time will tell on that one. It was a good first day – and Mr 6 was very keen to go back today. All good!
Once all that was out of the way, I caught up with Janine and Beverley. It was fantastic just to chill out in the sun and a lovely cafe I hadn’t been too for years. Bev’s little Jessie is such a cutie pie! And I got a wee bit burned. Naughty me.
Then it was kindy pick up time, a quick lunch at home and a drop off for an afternoon session at preschool. I wasn’t so organised for that as I didn’t actually realise that preschool was restarting this week too. Never mind, we’ll get there!
Then before I knew it, it was time to pick up the Mr’s, get dinner on and watch some telly. I swear the day went by so fast!
As for the card, well, I struggled a little with this sketch. I knew what I wanted to do, but it came out looking pretty messy. So, after the 4th attempt at stitching and it still looking nasty, I stopped and had another idea. Not so thrilled with the finished product as I normally am, but sometimes that happens. Turns out a few of the other sketch girls struggled too. Not that you’d know it – they are pretty gorgeous! I used some of the lovely Heidi Grace papers I picked up a while back. Don’t forget to drop me a line if you use the sketch too – would love to see how you interpret it!
