We awoke with much excitement about the May Day Festival yesterday. The sun was shining and Papa was home. I had a few extra moments to turn a now-too-small dress into a skirt for my girl. She of course had her own ideas of how to embellish it, so flowers from one of her toddler shirts were cut and added as a border. I love our collaboration on her May Day Skirt (and especially how those preschoolly dirt stained knees poke out from under it.)
Speaking of these preschool days, they are numbered for her. She'll "jump the log" soon and I'm trying my best to savor the details. When I spotted her coming toward our picnic blanket full of Mamas, I noticed a six-year-old swagger that her and her pack of friends had while coming our way. They had stories of fairy houses, games of chase and hide-and-go-seek. There were adorable babies and toddlers everywhere. The sun was shining brighter than it had in months. There were expansive green fields for running and an old apple tree orchard in bloom. It was a very good day and I was very grateful for all the friends and families we've come to know as our family in the last few years at preschool. Luckily we don't have to say goodbye, since he gets to start in a few weeks! Sister and brother will have some time together at school and as you can see, he's holding onto her tightly.
