On Quiet Houses

Today is the first day of school! 

 My 3rd, 8th, and Kindergartner

I spent all night making a nap mat cover for Mr. Jac.
I didn't use a pattern, just sort of winged it from the nap mat my mom had made me in kindergarten (yeah, I still have it.)  I put two stretchy circles of fabric on the end to tie it all up with, and Em made the pillow.  I was happy to use the fancy star stitches my machine can do around the blanket. Fun!


All Rolled Up
Alien on the Blanket

All my kids are in school this year,  and Cole and I don't know what to do.  

He wouldn't stop barking when Jac was getting his clothes on like he was saying,  "You can't make HIM go too, it was bad enough when just the two big ones went!" My reluctant kindergartner was fine until I said "bye" in the classroom.  I haven't had a call yet, so wish us luck.
The house is too quiet.

Yea for quiet houses! Simon spent the night with cousins so Taido and I even went and grabbed coffee together after dropping off the kids.

SURREAL!

@A- That is a great idea! I hope today goes well for all our munchkins. Are you still at NLRM?

Love the nap mat. Wish I could sew! Are you used to a quiet house yet?

Thanks, Fawn! I can't sew all that wonderfully on a machine, but I get by. I would love to learn how to quilt. I am starting on an apron project that I think might be fun. I'll post pics! And, no. Not yet...listening to the dishwasher now.
