Remember the nail aprons I got at Home Deep and adapted for the boys? Well it really bothered me that the straps were soooooo long and a potential danger to younger children. I wanted to make a couple for some kiddos we know and decided that velcro would definitely make the need for longer straps obsolete.

I found some fun cotton duck that was perfect for a boy, and interfaced some cotton to make an apron for a girl. Hard to tell, but the front panel has 2 pockets. Today was our first day of Kindergarten! Timo did great, and I’m pretty sure my 4 year-old will be able to keep up so this may have been his first day of K as well. Poor little Nathan (the shirtless one) spent much of his school time sad because he wasn’t allowed to use the glue stick. It was a great day – we were able to finish 2 whole days worth of lessons as well as some computer practice and extra reading. And here is our picture to commemorate the day:
And my 1000th commenter was Rachel!!! Congratulations, Rachel! And since I’m feeling generous, I am also recognizing my 999th commenter, Kimberly! Kimberly is quite possibly my longest blog friend ever besides my sister, of course. Congratulations, ladies, you will each be receiving a set of quilted cards. Please let me know if you prefer springy pink cards or fall-ish themed cards.
