How is everyone today? The first week of school is almost over. We had changes at work too. Monday was the day children moved into new rooms with new teachers. Our baby room stayed mostly the same. Two of our boys went up to next room and next Monday my partner comes back with her baby. A fresh start for everyone. Kind of exciting I think. It has been fun watching the older kids get ready for the school bus, I can see them outside the nursery window. The new kindergarteners and new first graders. One of our teachers has a daughter who started middle school. It makes me emotional to watch them all growing up. We have a small staff and of the nine full time employees, 6 of us have kids at the daycare. Either in one of the classrooms or in the Before and After School program. Those who don't have their own children definitely love the kids there like they were their own, so it has been a big week for all of us.
Autumn started first grade. I feel like she was just born and now she is a big kid. Here she is on the first day.
Walmart to get school supplies and she picked out some fabric. I thought the fabric was kind of loud, but she is six. If a six year old can't get away with it then who can? On Tuesday evening I looked through Ravelry for a crochet pattern for the bodice. She wanted me to crochet part of it and I love it when she asks me to make her clothes. I could not find a pattern that seemed just right, so I sat down and figured one out. Yesterday I got off work a little early and came home and made her this dress.
She had to pose out in our front yard too. I was ready to get going, but she wanted her photo taken by the tree.
