ELPAC testing

My team included Adrienne and Linda. We are testing only TK and Kindergarten, students new to the school system. The placement test went very quickly, so it looks like we’ll only get 6-7 days work this time.

From the sewing cave

When I did the Ride Along on the Jibe Express at the beginning of August, I got a t-shirt that had a mis-sewn sleeve. It really bothered me to wear it, but the shirt was soooo big and not a single person noticed anyway. Rather than throw it away, I upcycled it using Vogue 1570.I should NEVER have started making French knots, but once begun I had to finish. I estimated I made 1120 of them.

Sophia Avery & Carson

I spent some time with Sophia, Avery, and Carson the past couple of days.
Avery built quite an elaborate fort in the living room. He showed me all the passageways and pop-up-to-look-around spots.
Carson loves to blow bubbles

and eat whipped cream.
