Summer is almost here!
In fact yesterday was Owen’s last day of school. And Lucy’s is next week.
I can’t believe it.
I’m immediately excited and overwhelmed at the same time. What am I going to do with 3 kids for 3 months when it’s 90 and sunny? Don’t I ask myself this same question every year? And then before I know it, we’re taking new school supplies to the new teacher? Summer flies. We better enjoy it! And judging from past summers I can guarantee at least two things….
1. We’ll be wearing a lot of shorts…..which is why I’m feverishly working on the new shorts pattern to share with you all! I made great progress this week. Hopefully it’s ready within the month.
2. The daily schedule will involve one (or more) water activities. Which means that once I’m done making shorts…..it’s time to sew Beach Robes! And that means it’s also time to find cool towels to turn into beach robes…and I’m loving the selection of towels in stores right now. Have you been looking?? Now’s the time!
From Ikea, Target, and Old Navy I scored these beauties:
(baby not included; crazy reaction to ombre towels definitely included)
I mean, how cool is this print? (Old Navy). I’m totally making it into a robe for Lucy.
And this might be perfect for little Clara:
I’m so excited she’s big enough for a beach robe! I actually look forward to making these each year because they’re so easy to sew and the kids love them.
Three cheers for summer! and soon-to-be beach robes
But Shorts first. Because it’s way too hot for these anymore:
Have a great weekend!
(And get shopping for towels, for making robes, for kids, for summer, for hot pink sunglasses and toothy grins. Bye!)
