New Pillows and Fresh Starts

I have been searching and searching for just the right accent pillows for our new bed ensemble. At last, I have found something that excites me! Now I need to find some curtains and some new blinds. We have been working on this for quite some time now. I even have an interior decorator friend who has offered to help me decorate in there (which I need - I need someone who is taller than me and can stand on a chair to get higher still!) Not to mention I can buy stuff I like, i just can't seem to place it just so!

Tonight we took our oldest to her new middle school for the 5th grade tour. I am not as sad this time around (I dropped her off last month so she could take the enriched math test and when I left her there it just tore my heart! I sobbed and sobbed! And I thought kindergarten was hard!). It doesn't seem as big - maybe because I saw some of my PTO moms there and so I don't feel so lost! At least I have the summer to gradually grow into this change.

middle school already?! how is it even possible!!! you tell miss hopscotch that i remember holding her as a baby! do you tell her what i've told ours-- that i don't want my babies growing up too fast so i'm just going to cancel birthdays. of course, m cried when i told her that last year. guess she thought i really could do that!

We go even further and tell them that if they don't stop growing we will lock them in the closet! Poor M!

Middle school? oh, my heart is sinking too. She's a great kiddo and she will be amazing because you have been such great parents and entrusted her to the Lord! Can't wait to see ya in one week and 3 days! WooHoo!

my problem is, when you finish filling in the pillow, how do you close it back up without seeing the stitches?
you did a good job.
