dear diana/melissa/brittany... oh and echo and me too,

In the grand tradition of sewing procrastination I had every intention of getting a little somethin somethin together for your little one before I left for the mainland.

I even cut out four sets of little Huck Finn pants the night before I found out about Grandpa Hawkins passing see:

Four pant fronts and four pant backs all pinned together... ready for action for four little boys: Shiloh, Mel's soon-to-be babe, Asher and Gideon (for when he got back... happy late birthday!)...

and Britt, I was gonna do a cute little baby girl dress. My first ever.

I even told Thomas about a picture I would take of them all hanging on the clothesline together when I was done looking all old fash and whatnot (Darcie and Martin are you seething over my hijacking of your phrase yet?)...

but now I am leaving a week early so guess what?

You get to look forward to receiving a package in the mail come late August!!!

So exciting right.

Ok, off to sign my Fall contract for the TWO classes I am teaching this Fall (!!!!), return the boys library books, and then hand-out candy to everyone around us as we board a plane bound for family!

Aloha Oe,

I got curious about the title of your post. It is interesting. Thank you for sharing this very informative post. I will be visiting your blog more often.

stephertons, i'm sorry to hear about your grandpa. i actually really liked all of my grandparents funerals, because you can hear about how awesome they were.

and those pants are so rad--and seem like an appropriate segueway to me telling you i started making you a gift to give you when asher was born, and i think i'm really going to struggle to get it done by our party. so no worries about timing!

i'm so excited to see you! woo!
