So Hannah graduated from feeding therapy back in the spring, and then we switched OTs from the same clinic a month or so later when we found another awesome speech and OT clinic. In the craziness of spring, end of school year, preschool prep…I never gave her old therapists gifts.
Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.
Last month I read a ton of fall books with the two pre-k classes. After we finished our stories we made these fall collages one week.
I found this tree coloring page online and tweaked the size to make it just right. Then I put piles of cut-up construction paper at the tables and let the kids go to town with crayons, glue sticks, and the paper.
Halloween has come and gone, and it was so awesome this year. We also got a ton of mileage out of Hannah’s homemade costume this year. I love this cow.
After spending last weekend in DC, Hannah and I dropped Adam off at the train station so he could come back to NYC for work. But I’d decided a couple of months before that it would be really fun for Hannah and me to go away together for a few days during her spring break. A mommy/daughter trip.
So, we (I) decided to drive from Washington to Lancaster county in PA. After a morning running around DC together, we hopped in the car and set off.
I’ve finished the quilting on this one! I love it, and I tried something new. I was poking around some quilting tutorials and came across some of Angela Walters’ excellent videos on All People Quilt. She’s just so relaxed and encouraging, and she promoted the idea of keeping things loose and just going for it. I liked that, so I gave it a try. This was kind of inspired by her paisley design, but I’m obviously not as deft with it as she is.
I love them! I tweaked my old design and ordered a batch from Spoonflower. Also, can we talk about the improvements to my photo skills in the last three years? I swear, sometimes I toy with the idea of taking down all my ancient posts, but they remind me of my evolution. In so many ways.
