First Day of 3-K

Adair started 3-K on Thursday at God's House Kindergarten.  This is a new school for us this year and I think we are all going to love it.  It is a very quaint and warm school.  They focus on the gospel everyday and desire for the children to learn about Jesus.  I love that Adair will be exposed to the Bible outside of home and church.

Her teacher's name is Miss Beth and she is precious.  Adair already loves her!  Two of her best friends from church are also in her class and I know she will come home every day after school saying "Sarah Kathryn this and Caroline that".  It should be a fun year full of learning, encouragement and growth.

Craft Note:  If you are curious about her bag, I made it and it was SO easy anyone can do it.  These little tote bags come in a pack of three for $6.99 at Hobby Lobby. 

If you would like to give it a try, here's how I did it.

Canvas tote bag
Template for letters (from Word)
Heat and Bond Light
Fabric scraps
Embroidery thread

1)  Print an outline of the letters you want in the right size in Word and cut them out
2)  Pick out your fabric, cut squares of fabric a little bigger than your letters, then iron the Heat and Bond Light onto the backs of the squares following the directions on the package
3)  Trace your letters on the Heat and Bond Light side of the fabric (make sure you face them the right direction)
4)  Cut out your fabric letters
5)  Iron your letters onto your bag following the directions on the package
6)  Use embroidery floss (I used 3 pieces together) and hand stitch around each letter; you could also embelish with buttons, fabric flowers, etc.
