It's finally warm and dry enough to declare Spring Break. We'll be off lessons for the next week or two, until it gets too hot or too rainy for the girls to want to play outside. At least Brighteyes will be off lessons, Sunshine says she wants to continue hers. Her lessons only last around 20 minutes, and include games.
Spring and Fall Breaks are when we switch over the wardrobes. This Spring I finally confirmed something I've suspected for a while, Brighteyes is not going to fit in ready-to-wear gracefully any longer. Her widths are Sizes 4 and 6, her lengths are Sizes 7, 8, and 11??(eek!) Sunshine may well stretch out the same way in a few years. I'm going to have to do some serious pattern alteration, and then sew like mad so they'll have clothes that fit. It looks like we're going to have to institute a new size in this house: B7, what Brighteyes was wearing when she turned 7.
Ah, well. It could be worse. In a few years she'll have breasts to alter for in addition to everything else.
