Pink

I apologize for the picture quality...

Vicious Pink opened at CentralTrak this past weekend, and I made the cupcakes!

Skirt 25 and my PINK SOX ~ hi team!

Speaking of pink, I just bought some pinking shears to make stockings for my kiddos. They are Fiskars Soft Touch Pinking Shears. They operate on a spring release, and are much better than their standard pinking shears. That pair always leaves my hands bruised.

It was time to go back to school today, and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I turned the radio to the all Christmas station and pulled out the safety scissors, glue and glitter.

For some of my kids, this was their first time to cut with scissors. It was so cute and interesting for me to watch their little fingers try to operate this strange tool. They managed to cut out lots of pieces of paper, but I cut out shapes for them to paste their pieces on. Some learned to recognize a triangle! I was so proud! (Can you tell how much I missed them?)

I talked to my friend Stephanie and we were comparing pre-schools. Her little one attends a pre-school in CT, and she had a great observation for me. She told me that it looked like I did a lot of the work for the kids. HELLO! Reality check, she's absolutely right. I don't want to rob them of their experience to play with materials, so I'm trying to change things up a bit for them. We have three weeks of school, which doesn't leave us a lot of time to make stuff. They had fun today, they told me so.
