My Baby Is Off To Secondary School!

This morning Nelson headed off for his first day of secondary school. He was very excited. Our school goes from Prep to Year 12, so transition into secondary is very easy. Some of his footy mates are coming to the school this year, which he was very happy about.
Mitchell headed off on his first day at his new school. He wouldn't let me take a photo (I've done this every year for 11 years), so I got a photo as he was going down the drive. He is on the right. They go to the MCG for their first day and collect their uniforms.  We had to order them on line and I was hoping I had ordered the right sizes. Unfortunately, I just got an text from Mitchell telling me the shorts and pants are too small! What a pain. Now I'll have to find out how to change them.

Austin starts school tomorrow. Now I can get back into some proper routine!
I was lucky enough to win a prize from Tracee of Quilt Kitty Loves Life in her 100 Followers giveaway. Thank you Tracee.
My lovely friend Cheryll (Gone Stitchin') sent me these adorable fabric labels. mmmmm Now what to use them on! Thank you Chez.
