One item on my wants is crossed off...current pictures of B. She was such a ham during the photo shoot and there were a ton of really great pictures to choose from. She was constantly in motion but the photographer was able to nail several typical B moments. And those were the pictures I chose. I could of gone with the pretty poses but that's not my B. My B has a bold and vibrant personality and a mischievous spirit. Just like the girl in the pictures above.
We also finished up with school and award assemblies last week. I'm very proud of my 2 oldest...straight A's for both, P had the most Accelerated Reader points in the entire school, and K took home a Gold physical fitness award. They both applied themselves this year and it was nice to see that hard work rewarded.
I've given up on stripping/refinishing the furniture. It was a great idea but we were gifted with the rest of the furniture that went with the bunk beds. So now there's the bunk beds, a dresser, a desk, and 2 bookcases that all have the funky paint job. I can't even begin to imagine how much time it would take to strip all of that! I've decided to paint everything a matte black.
I've been sewing a little here and there. One of the 2+2 tops is almost done...all it needs is to be hemmed. The bubble gauze is a bit of a pain to sew with as it stretches some and it's light weight enough that I have to be careful or else the sewing machine eats it. It's a good thing I've been doing most of my sewing after the kids are in bed or else they might have added some new colorful words to their vocabulary!
eta: I finished the top! It's a size 4 and on B the front slit is a little low but it should be perfect on M. I omitted the back button placket since I plan on the girls wearing their tops while we're on our marathon trip. I think buttons might get a little uncomfortable on the back if one is stuck in a car seat for hours on end. M's will be pink with orange accents.
