After months with only one child participating in extracurricular activities, we've entered the Every Night is Spoken For Season. P is finishing up basketball (2 more weeks) and has started soccer practice. K has been attending spring conditioning in hopes of making her school's track team (3 weeks until tryouts). M has ballet one night a week. B is the only one with out an activity. We tried ballet with B back in the fall. DISASTER! This picture sums up her feelings toward ballet...
"Don't make me do this!"
Whereas M really enjoys it and didn't appreciate taking a class that included B.
B would hassle M while the latter tried to listen and do exactly what the teacher asked. And BK did her own thing. Yes, she's only 3 (almost 4) and what can one really expect? B is not like her 2 older sisters who loved ballet from a young age. She's happiest chasing her big brother around the backyard with a yellow, plastic bat.
During the day before practice runs start, I've been tracing new patterns off. I have the Oliver + S Ice Cream top size 5 traced and also the "Vaahtokarkki" gingham blouse from 01/10 Ottobre Design in a 104. I'll be participating in a sew-a-long for the blouse here that starts March 5. I had fun with the last sew-a-long I did and find that the motivation is a great way to clear items off my to-sew list. I haven't decided yet what fabric I'm going to use but at least I have the pattern traced!
I've also been doing some research/mental planning for a tutorial I'd like to put together. I impressed with those who are constantly posting new tutorials on their blogs. It's a lot of work! There's a dress that K likes that I'm trying to recreate. I already have a name for it...the Olas Dress but that's about it so far.:)
