to the sewing room.Sara and her machine are now a permanent addition to the room of requirement. After dragging her machine out and putting it back a few times, we've decided to keep it out permanently. She's currently working on her first quilt - a crazy quilt. Sewing all of the flannel scraps together. There is something wonderful about looking up and seeing her there, hearing the steady sound of our machines together and enjoying those moments of conversation that come between a mother and a daughter. Often I've heard her in there sewing by herself and several times have received the invitation, "hey mom, do you want to sew with me?"
I register the boys for school today. It won't be as much fun as registering for elementary school. This time it's pretty much filling out papers and walking with my kids a few feet in front of me as to not be seen with their mom. Aaron will say hi to everyone there...they all know him...and Josh will walk quietly by his side trying to take it all in for the first time - his first year in Jr. High. 7th and 9th grade...I'm really not ready for this.
