HersheyPark with the Billses

We had a great time on Saturday at HersheyPark with the Billses. We were very happy (and very lucky) to share the beautiful day with such cute cousins, and we hope they had fun, too.

Special K: Katie's first day of Kindergarten

At our front door, and outside the school.
Lining up in the hallway, before asking me to stop taking pictures.
Classic Katie moment: the kids were told to form a single-file line on a silver line (basically a seam in the tiles) to walk down to their classroom. About three steps in to her walk, Katie starts tight-rope walking, arms out and everything.
We love our little grown-up girl! Thank goodness we still have Maggie to cuddle...

The one-dollar skirt

Katie and I got a chance to go to the local resale shop and found this skirt on the 1.00 clearance rack. Actually it was a junior's size 9, but it was so cute I figured that if I messed it up, it had new life waiting as a quilt block.....

I took it in on both of the side seams and serged the edges--flaring out when I got to the skirt part to keep with the shape.

Not perfect but a really cute skirt for Katie to play in!
