As long as Lucy will let me, I see a future of homemade First Day of School Skirts (check out Kindergarten here). And by the time she hits Jr. High I hope we've moved on from the elastic waistband. For First Grade though....the Simple Skirt will do.
It was a crazy weekend (Lucy in the ER with stitches on her chin and Dad was out of town) so I almost didn't get one together. But last night we pulled it off. Lucy picked a fabulous 80s floral from my fabric closet and I got sewing.
She insisted on wearing my Forever 21 headband. I've never seen a bow that big on her head but it looked real cute. And for shoes....um.....we pulled out the same ones from last year. Haah. We actually bought a new pair of tennies for the year but her feet aren't growing fast enough. Way to reduce, reuse, recycle?
Lucy loved it all.
And, she was off in a blur.
With her oversized backpack and little sidekick.
What oh what is he going to do without her?
I love that our school is just one block away. Such a great morning outing.
And just like that, she was sitting in her desk working on art projects.
Happy First day to all you new school kids!
See you at 3pm.
