a quilt.

Kate is a member of the ponds (parents of near drownings) group... she is not a parent of a near drowning, but is a quilt maker. She has a long waiting list for her special quilts. Isabelle has been on her list for years. At least two years ago Kate mentioned some of the patterns of material she had found and wanted to know if anyone on the waiting list was interested. She mentioned an olivia the pig pattern and I said I thought Iz would love that!

The Olivia the pig quilt arrived this week. Such a beautiful quilt full of so much handwork and love. The border around the edge says, "exercise is good, accessorizing is better." Isn't that cute? There are pigs with bows and different accessories on the quilt. It's a great size and I know Isabelle will enjoy it so much. We've had fun just looking at the different pigs on the quilt.
The quilt group is "Circle of Hope." Thank you Kate & Circle of Hope for such a wonderful quilt of love and... well... pigs :) !

a surprise

Today was Izzy’s day for ESY … which is Summer school. She has been missing Melanie (her favorite teacher)! Today Melanie came to surprise Izzy! She brought balloons… and one was ORANGE. Izzy grabbed the orange balloon when Melanie showed them to her. Word was that Iz did better with Karen and Camilla than she has all Summer. Melanie is a great motivator. Lots of exciting things to look forward to this school year including a new classroom of their very own that is bigger and can accommodate all the things needed to make school perfect! So great.

Thank you Melanie for coming to school today to surprise Izzy. She was so happy to see you! (so was I) :)
