Take Two

It’s the first day of preschool! Jump for joy!

Check out those stripes!

You thought we already did that? She spent a total of eight days at the old place. The third Friday morning, she told me she would rather stay home and clean the house with me than go to school and have birthday cupcakes with her class. We were already REALLY unhappy with the place (our choices are few) but sticking with it as long as she seemed to be enjoying herself. We called the Montessori place a couple towns south (it’s a drive or she would have been there already). They said “Sure we have room, but if you aren’t in a hurry, we’re opening a new school down the road from you!” We weren’t in a hurry and school started today.

And she was not shy.

The Official Pattern of Dish Rag Tag V: V is for Victory is up and ready for download on Ravelry and in my Free Patterns (it’s at the very bottom). Incidentally, the Free Patterns page has been spruced up a bit and now has pictures.

If you’ll excuse me, I need to get started on Ellie’s Halloween costume! I am so glad school opened this week – I had no idea when I was going to find the time to get that done.

    LOVE those STRIPES!!! I hope she had a wonderful day.

    I love the V is for Victory Dishcloth- I have made several and it has become my “go to ” cloth. Thanks for sharing.

    Polka dots and stripes go well together 🙂 and Pink cats go with everything… and a new school down the road is just… purrfect !

    YAY for Ellie! She looks so excited! I bet she’ll really enjoy Montessori. I taught at a Montessori preschool for a year and a half and loved it!

    Both my daughters went to Montessori preschool. In fact, it worked out so excellently for them that they went to the Montessori charter school that we are fortunate enough to have in our public school system, for elementary years. I am sending good thoughts that Ellie loves her school as much as our daughters did theirs, and that her teachers are as good!

    (I’ve found Montessori teachers to be great. If it’s a certified Montessori school, the teachers have gone through additional training, and teachers that are willing to do that basically are already at a certain level of commitment etc.)
