Mommy and me.
We may not be starting school for a few weeks...
but the learning happens all the time :o)
Katie is looking forward to returning to her choir and art classes (Flame) in a few weeks. She is so excited she lays awake at night thinking about it.
She has the outfit she will wear arranged on a little chair in her room.
And yesterday she told me she thought she had too many accessories picked out.
Where did she get that!?
The top she choose is a pretty baby doll top we bought recently from Old Navy.
It has been washed once. And it has a torn seam.
It was time to sew it up. I found the thread and Katie ran to get the needle.
She knew right where the needles are kept because we use those same needles to extract splinters.
I started sewing and was just about finished when Katie asked.
"Can I do it?"
At first I said 'no' cause I am accustomed to saying 'no' a lot.
But I quickly changed that to a 'yes'.
I handed it over and gave her a quick lesson.
On the first pull she almost lost the thread...but caught it in time.
"You have to hold on to that thread, just like in knitting." I said.
"Can we put a knot in it?" she said.
Small lessons. That don't feel like lessons.
She's also taking photography.
She took the photo of my hands on the left.
