Back to School!
Yep, I'm going back to school and Lilly is starting preschool. I taught elementary school for 6 years before Lilly came along and I loved it. I was born to plan lessons and be bossy(just ask my "little" brother who used to have to sit with my dolls while I played teacher everyday after school, I even had a blackboard in my room). So this year I decided to enroll Lilly in the preschool at our church 2 half days a week. Come to find out they were looking for a teacher and asked me if I was interested. I was. They interviewed me, offered me the job, Iaccepted it and so here we go...Lilly and I are off to school together this year. Very exciting. So of course I had to start thinking about what she was going to wear on her first day of "school", that's just the fashion obsessed momma I am. I decided to get some little khakis for her and embellish them with a school theme. Here's how they turned out...I cut out and appliqued the tree and apples from small scraps of fabric and hand embroidered around them. I didn't turn under the edges because I like that frayed edge look. I used a navy embroidery floss for a contrast. Pretty cute huh? Yeah that's what I thought, but little miss prissy britches won't wear her back to school britches. She only wants dresses and skirts these days. I have tried for 2 days to get these pants on her to no avail. Hopefully some time in the next 2 weeks I will be able to convince her to wear them...I wish they fit me. Come to think of it, I don't know what I am going to wear the first day. hmmmmm...I don't know, but I promise I'll refrain from stitching apples to my clothes:)
