Well the time finally came for the girls to leave their preschool. The school has been part of our lives about a week after Gorgeous Jerry and the kids arrived in New Zealand. This has therefore been the close of quite a special chapter.
With all of our kids having spent time at Browns Bay Preschool we wanted to make them something special to say thanks for everything. To be honest I was saying thanks for putting up with all of us and not pointing us in another direction in search of preschool needs. For those of you who know us we can be pretty full on most of the time. Anyway Lara and Emily wanted to be part of the whole gift making process and so here are the pics.
Their classroom is called the Whales Room so we thought the little added bit to the front was quite cool .. oh and check out my sewing! BY HAND!
Avery Labels has some great fabric labels that I used to personalise the toy box which I stitched on to the back. Very cool I thought.
Once again I need to give credit to Jerry for a very sturdy wooden box (made out of left overs in the garage) and then upholstering was done by the three girlies.
Wine: Yes this was definitely needed to get this over the line. Remember that it was birthday cake making time as well as trying to get this all done. To be honest the whole week was a bit of a blur and I can’t be absolutely sure what wine I was drinking …. I think it was white .. well 50% chance of getting that right if you exclude Rose which I’m sure we all agree isn’t a real wine. I’m still convinced that it’s made by mixing red and white (just kidding I’m not such a philistine – rhymes with wine ****cracking up******)
Music: Bit cliche I know but the fact that we knocked this thing up in an evening, baked 2 cakes, packed 30 party packs I think We are the Champions is pretty apt.
Pssssst: If you’re planning on giving this a go stay away from that fur on the lid … fricken nightmare to vacuum even with my soooper dooooper cordless Dyson.
Monday tomorrow so strength for the week ahead to you all.
