Tomorrow is the first REAL day of Kindergarten, the day they stay until 2:50. Their day includes "nap time" where I don't really think anyone naps. It should be called "recharge the kids' batteries" time, or "teacher sanity time". I was planning on choosing the most Grace-like beach towel we had and sending that along to do the job, but Alex informed me that I had to make Grace a pillow because I had made him one. He still keeps it on his bed. I didn't really realize that he still kept it around, even though he is in 6th grade, but if it is that important to him, then by all means, Grace needs a pillow too. (Emily had morning kindergarten and missed out on nap time).
I decided that since fleece is all the rage in the JoAnns Fabric circles, I would pick some cute fleece and make a blanket for her as well. I ended up with ballerinas since she is my budding dancer, and solid pink for the pillow. I chased all over town looking for the letters to sew on for her name (like Alex's) but in the end decided to embroider her name on it instead.
I hope it is on her bed when she is in 6th grade.
