yesterday morning z and i decided to sew. first up was this strawberry bag. she helped cut out parts of the pattern and then worked the pedal on the machine. we are both very happy with how it turned out.
later we made a skirt. actually i made it as her attention waned, but she’s still awfully cute in it.after that it was off to the craft store dressed matchy matchy – t-shirts, polka dot skirts and bags. oh yes! and the necklaces zelda made for us.
after being out of day care, aka school, since may 1st, zelda headed back to school yesterday. she has started a new school. she will go tuesdays and thrusdays pretty much all day and then spend the remainder of the week with me. in the fall she will go full time to the extended kindergarten program. by all accounts yesterday was a smashing success and she’s ready to go back again tomorrow.
it’s not that we mean to ignore this space, but when life is full the last thing we want to do is sit down at the computer, which means less posting here. but things are starting to settle down. mama and her little z have been reunited in iowa and have been hanging out and visiting family and friends. in a few more days our family of 3 will be together again after a little over a month.
good news is that we are all set to complete the sale on our iowa home. it was A LOT of work, but worth it. while we love that house, it’s time to fully relocate our efforts up north. there may be an opportunity or two in the future up there as well, but we need to wait and see. the next few days for zelda and i will be tying up loose ends and gearing up to see daddy and then lots of family as we head to a family reunion and finally back to alaska in a little over a week. we are having lots of fun with our adventures, but are looking forward to getting home and enjoying the alaska summer.
