This all intermingled with Back To School week which was hectic. At the last minute, my son was given a different teacher. It was a hard pill for us to swallow since he had been with a certain teacher all summer and with no notice at all, he was moved to the other Kindergarten teacher. She's less organized and 'cool' but we're making strides. The one he has been with is a Pinterest freak like me and just crafts in general. The other is the complete opposite and we just didn't 'click'.
My son seems to think she's okay and he hasn't resisted going to school lately so I'm guessing its going better. He's also not in the class with his friends. They all made the move from Early Kinder to Kinder this year and the plan was to keep them together so the few that stayed would have each other to lean on. His entire class is new. There have been a few behavioral issues with him because of this but I keep in close contact with the school to make sure the behavior is getting better and not worse. I snapped some quick pictures of him on the first day before we got the bad news that he was with the 'wrong teacher'.
I've had just a few sleepless nights over the changes going on both personally and professionally. Its a busy time at work anyway. This has really cramped my desire to craft. I went almost 2 weeks without even setting foot into my scrap room. I have orders and kit club boxes piling up on my chair. I literally threw them in there thinking I would open them the next night and never got around to it. Now I have 4 ziploc bags with various kit clubs organized for this month AND my paper purchases from my LSS and online have been filed away in the Cropper Hopper.
I also found a small stack of layouts I completed just before the you know what hit the fan at the end of August. I am trying to pull an old kit and work through it until its gone. I'm still underwater with kits. WAY too many. I cancelled all but Cocoa Daisy now so that should help.
This was made with the February 2013 Studio Calico kit. Love the colors in this one.
