Around Here

My childhood copy of The Little Princess had been resting on my sister's bookshelf for years, and last week we were reunited.  It has been our read-a-loud for the ides of March, and is whisking us all away to imagine what it would be like to live imprisoned in the Bastille.  It is a truly wonderful escape.

In other news I have been trying my hand at knocking off some of the best boy shorts on the market: The mini boden board shorts. I picked up a pair, second hand several years ago, and Myles wore them non-stop for two entire summers.  They didn't survive autumn, and when I went to order them recently, I just couldn't stomach the price tag.  Who knows if it will work, but I just snuck them up into his drawer and am hoping for the best. My pattern is from here: DanaMadeIt. And you can barely tell the airplanes are upside down. Whoops.
