Class of 2025

The little pumpkin started Preschool this morning. *sniff, sniff* She wasn't excited or anything... The all-important backpack shot! Sadly, our butterfly one wasn't wide enough at the top to fit the requisite folder so we had to go with Option B.

New tradition started this year! Can't wait to see how this changes year to year!! (Idea from Roots & Wings Co., via HERE).

The little pumpkin ready to go!
Hurry up, Mama!!! We sent some fun 1st Day of School goodies for her 8 PreK classmates, along with a sweet sentiment. LOVE these fun, all-natural paints from Sidewalk Sensations. Find more HERE. We're here! Time to go in! But not before a little picture with mama. Greeting her teacher. Figuring out the whole check-in procedure...add a bow tie to the bear with your name on it. Feeling a bit nervous...but
NO TEARS!!!
{at least not from the little pumpkin *wink*} And this little monkey was all smiles......until he looked over and she wasn't there.Hmm...One day it'll be my turn... Hurry up 12:15 p.m.!!!
We can't wait to get our little pumpkin back!


...and just as I was wrapping this up I realized that 2025 is exactly 30 years from the year Lance & I graduated high school! Wow!

This post brings back so many memories from 1981...
The picture with you kneeling by her side reminds me so much of the one of me kneeling by your side on your first day of school. As a matter of fact, I think I'm going to frame them both together. Things change but some momentous events in life remain the same, generation by generation...

Did you make her outfit for her first day of preschool? I love it! Where did you find this pattern? You have inspired me to want to learn how to sew! I have a 7 month old daughter and I want her to have adorable clothes like Grace!

Awww...thank you so much! I'm a novice seamstress myself so I'm afraid I don't have many sewing tips to share as I'm still learning the ropes! The outfit was made by my friends Angel & Amy of TaDa! Creations. You can find their blog here:

and their etsy store here:

FYI...I also sell some of my daughter's outgrown boutique clothes via my other blog, which you can find here:

And do share if you make stuff for your little cutie - I'd love to see! :)
