Happy Labor Day/Back to School

It is hard to believe summer is coming to an end. My kids are all adults so I don’t have all of the Back to School preparation like I use to. But this is a very sad back to school for me. After having my grandkids for 2 days per week for the past 8 years, this year they will both be in school fulltime.  When they left on Friday my grandson said “see you next summer Grama.” Like that is going to happen! They are only one hour away from me so I will still make weekly visits and see them for a bit after school.

My great nephew Gus is one, and although he won’t be going back to school his teacher mom will be. She stayed home with him the first year so this will be his first time in Daycare. So I made him this little “craft apron”, hopefully little boys wear such things. I found this at the Dollar store and thought it would be fun to personalize. The label says “Made of All New Material ” which had me worried. But I set the heat at 300, used the Teflon sheet, and made sure that I did not press the bee which was on the apron when I purchased it. I am happy to report that the apron did not melt and the heat transfer vinyl stuck. :O)
