What are we up to?


Yesterday we left the house for a while to play at a local park. Today we didn't leave the house until time for gymnastics. In fact, M spent most of the day in her pj's.
So, you're wondering...what's the picture? Well, I bought that sweet little DRESS at the consignment sale. It was monogrammed with another little girl's name and when I was taking out the monogram, I slit the dress. So today, I hemmed it and made those super cute pants to coordinate. The best part is those pants will also go with another little top I have planned for the fall wardrobe.
Please continue to pray for us. There are good moments, but there are also times of a lot of darkness. The busier I am, the less time I have to think, but I don't always want to be busy. Sometimes, I just want to sit and think and feel. I'm so thankful that my coworkers and principal saw the need for a whole week off. I'm not ready to go back to work yet. I'm so thankful that I have M. H is extremely supportive and working through this in his own way: building us a deck and a new fence.

WOW-I am always so impressed by your domestic side, since I, myself, do not have one! It will take some time, maybe a lot of time, and you do need to be able to sit still and rest and grieve...Prayers are being lifted for you so often- for you and H. I am extremely thankful that you took the week off...THE best decision. Do not hurry yourself through this. Know that you are SO loved. We are ALL here for you, my friend. I love you.

What she said! Just popping in to keep an eye on you. Love your sewing! Very cute!! A bit more practical than the endless gypsy vests and trousers I have been making for the Musical!!! :-)

That is the cutest little outfit! You've got some real talent with needle on thread...I can't sew a seam to save my life. LOL. M will be one stylin' little girl this fall.

I'm glad you're taking the week off and giving yourself the room to grieve and heal. Hugs and prayers.

That outfit is precious! You sew, too? You continue to impress me.

Sending more hugs, more prayers, and more love your way. Don't stay too busy, take that quiet time...
