It's today, it's today, it's today! THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!! I think I am as excited as the kids are. The gang got on the bus this morning with out a hitch. Jacob was by far the most excited. He didn't sleep a wink last night. He was up at 11pm when I went to bed and up this morning arounf 6am. He says he just stared at the wall all night. He is so nervous about 4th grade. Rumor has it that 4th is the toughest year with the most homework and hardest state tests. Andrew, always the opposite one, couldn't get out of bed this morning. He said he would go to school tomorrow. LOL. But once his juices got going he was ready to go. Lauren was a hoot. She thought she would get to go to school on the bus too. She was really bummed when she had to wait and have Momma drive her. Today was an open house style day for the preschoolers. We went just for an hour. Tomorrow starts the regular 9-11:30 days. She will be going M-W-F. I am a little nervous about the preschool I chose. It is new and it is a blended classroom. Most of the children are special needs. She is one of the mainstream students. I worry that since she doesn't need special attention, she won't get any at all. But there are 5 teachers for 15 students, so I hope that doesn't happen.
Did everyone have a good Labor Day? We went to a baseball game and had a blast! I had time before the game to string up the Vintage Romance beads. Check them out!
The coral pink was very very tempermental this time around. So a bunch of the beads that turned a gross flesh color went into the bad bead jar. But these were usable. You like?
This was about all I got done yesterday. But today should be very very productive. I am expecting deliveries from Mykonos Beads, Jewelry Supply, Heritage Glass and BeadShop. Plus I got some tips on frit beads I want to try out. I may have been melting the firt too fast, I want to see what colors I can get melting it slower. Frit beads are FUN! Simple, colorful, and great in everything.
