It was Ella's first day of kindergarten today. Graham was really worried about being left out. We packed him a backpack too and let him come along to drop her off. Ella was grumpy when I picked her up. She is not used to waking up early. It will be a big adjustment for all of us.

It was my first day back in school also. English 102 & Art 102 today. I'm happy to spend the time to better myself. I really appreciate it this time around. I don't feel it's a huge sacrifice for my family like beauty school was. This is for me. There is something very special about that now that I am a mom. I don't feel selfish. I feel intelligent and privileged. Thank you little family for letting me go back to school.

Ella's Birthday dress turned out to be the best so far. I used this pattern. I didn't even have to alter it. It was missing the waistband and tie, so I rigged something up. I'm so proud.

Ella's Birthday has been awesome so far. We had a party this afternoon. I curled their hair and put on their makeup. My favorite thing I did was make capes for them to get ready in, like they were in a salon. (made out of vintage sheets of course) They also got to pick out a headband. 5 was the perfect number. Oh, I also printed out some faces for them to put makeup on. It was a huge hit!
