mrs. fuqua, "the prettiest teacher"

starts kindergarten on monday, wow...the time has gone by so quickly. friday we went to what they call a "get-to-know-you tea". the little princess got to meet her teacher and give her the cute pillow we made. she was funny. before we left she was insistent that i let her be alone. she wanted me to bring the baby so that i could sit with him and not be alone but as soon as we walked into the school yard she grabbed my hand and said "you'll stay with me right?"...cute.

is coming! yes, it's true...i'm thinking of christmas. the little princess draws the most amazing pictures so i thought it would be fun to stitch them and make christmas presents. she thought it would be great to make a gift for her soon-to-be kindergarten teacher (she starts monday). if i do say so myself, i turned out super cute! i can't wait to make more! the second picture shows the projects i will be teaching at fat quarters for the christmas midnight madness. the christmas midnight madness class came about because i knew that the only way i would take time to get christmas projects done would be to teach a class. the first class starts sept. 13th and will run every month through christmas. should be fun!

and of course we found a couple other items that we couldn't pass up. this one was too perfect.
after shopping we got a slurpee. i even let her have the red one, which is a treat because any red drink makes her crazy. i would've like to have taken her to lunch but she wasn't hungry and the baby was. when we got home, she put on a fashion show and was a very happy little girl.

a high school teacher wrote in her yearbook, "your pretty enough to marry any man you want, but smart enough not to have to." i love that, it's perfect and dead on. she's obviously gorgeous, but if you were to take the physical beauty from her what would you have? you'd have beauty. she's strong, funny, talented and every bit as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. she is outgoing and witty, and will make you laugh when you feel like screaming. she really could be anything she wanted to be if she put her mind to it. she loves to love and is easy to love right back. her smile makes everything right and her eyes say it all. she's the perfect blend of tomboy and girlie girl and can play a pretty darn good game of softball. her heart is always in the right place, her mind is keen and her spirit is brightly lit. She's a keeper.

and a little tidbit about my dear son. he is helpful, hardworking, caring, and thoughtful. at times he drives us crazy with his determination and persistence (both of which will serve him well as an adult) and he tends to be a tad intolerant. In a nutshell, he's a great kid, with a great spirit and if you need him, he'd be there.
