We celebrated two half birthday's in February. We want to make sure each child is honored on their special day at the preschool and as 12 of our 19 children have a summer birthday we are more often celebrating half birthdays than actual ones.
More wooden kittens for the girls, made by my teaching partner. The top one for Madison, with a pastel crocheted pouch made by me...I added a long chain stitch cord made for wearing around the neck. The bottom one for Elsie...a bright colorful pouch for this little ray of sunshine.
And the sweet sheep? Why that one was made for me...when we ask the children what their favorite animal is I always share mine too and I never change...it is always the sheep. Provider of wool and milk that makes some of my favorite cheese. I celebrated MY birthday on Tuesday and my friend surprised me with my own little animal (however, we didn't bother singing "the earth goes round the sun..." for each year of my life!...we'd have been at the snack table forever!!)
It's been a busy week...catching up after my stay in Mexico. But I think I'm finally there.
Happy March!!! (already? ...crazy, right?)
