Whew! Week #1 Is Done

Ahhhhhh, it's finally Friday. The first week with kiddos at school is done, and I'm pooped. I always feel very sorry for the first-graders. Many of them have never been to a full day of school until this week, and they're incredibly tired for the first few weeks. You can actually watch them droop during the afternoons. Poor sweet little kids. I can relate. Today a second-grader told me that I might be a little older than his dad. After I asked how old is dad is, he told me 28. Then I told him that my son is 28, so I'm old enough to be his grandma. His answer? "Huh-uh, I don't think so." I love this kid.

I don't have loads of time to spend here this evening, because I wanna go put my ass in my chair and stitch until I can't keep my eyes open. But I wanna let my stash giveaway girls know what's coming their way. Barb, the new stash queen (because I sent her something a few weeks ago), is the only brave soul to request the Paula Vaughan kit. You rock, Barb! I put three little slips of paper in the cute little Damariscotta dish for the L&L Angel. I swished and swirled them around and pulled out Jennifer, so the angel will be winging her way to Georgia. Thank you again to any of you who have requested my destashing treasures. As soon as I have more stashy stuff to pass on, you'll see it here.

I wish I had a picture for you, but my progress on Evil Serpent has been very slow this week. Maybe I'll have something to show after the weekend. Oh, the weekend. I love weekends. Hope you have a happy one. Make some fun.

Awww, I would love that little boy, too! :) May you get to stitch until you eyes cross and your bottom begins to scream. (OK... that whole 'screaming bottom' thing sounds a little weird, but doesn't that sound like a fabulous week-end?) BTW, I can't believe you have a 28 yr old son. YGG!

What a cute little guy! I used to volunteer as a lunch mom at my kids' elementary school and I remember this little guy, having the hardest time being away from his mother for a full day. His teacher came up with the idea of pinning her picture onto his shirt. It was so sweet, always broke my heart to see him bravely trying not to cry that he missed her. I saw him this summer, taller than me, up serving Mass. Too cute.

Anyhoo! Enjoy your weekend. I hope you stitch yourself into a seriously numb keister.

Such a sweet little boy! I have fond memories of volunteering in my kids' classes when they were that age. Kids are so great at that age! Enjoy your weekend -- hope you get lots of stitching in!

Kids don't like being told lies... ;-)
I am going back to work on Monday, not very much looking forward to it. I can commiserate with you very easily !
Have a nice Sunday, stitching or no stitching -

Congratulations on making it through the first week of school. We've got two weeks left here and I am counting down the days! Next week we pick up school supplies and they now have enough clothes to start the year with. That little boy who thought you were not old enough to be his grandma sounds adorable!

I just love the things my first graders come up with!! We had "Back to School" night the other night to meet our new darlings and their parents...One of the little girls told one of the little boys that first grade is going to be "cooler" than Kindergarten was...he replied, I think we'll have more work to do, but at least our teachers are prettier...I about squeezed him into!! So,here's hoping your school year is as "cool" as mine is going to be! Faye

The first week of school finished and now you're into the second! We'll be starting up again on Monday and I'm dreading getting up at 6 am once again. In preparation, this morning I got up at 6:30. Other than that, I'm ready! :D

Little kids make the world go round, imho!
