Some Firsts...

Here is a glimpse of some of our firsts. 

My oldest sons first job is the ultimate first job.  Wouldn't you have loved to learn to ride and get paid for it?  I tell him all the time that I'm so jealous of this amazing opportunity that has been given to him...(I'm not really jealous...very happy for him.)  This is probably one of his favorite things about his first job....chasing the cattle.

My oldest sons first real cowboy shirt....which is required for him to show his market steer at the fair.  I'd say - he's one handsome cowboy!

Here is a first for me...cast iron pans!  I know that my dear friend over at:  http://mylifeonataffypull.blogspot.com/ will be so thrilled for us.  She got a set of cast iron a few months ago and loves them.  So here is the blessing in them - my husband was contracted to do some labor for the local food bank / thrift store and these pans came into the thrift store.  So he was able to barter some of his hours for them.  I was more than thrilled.  They are Lodge brand and are really heavy. 

Think my first meal in them will be eggs and sausage - oh, yum!  I have to look on-line to see how to clean and then re-season them as they need a bit of care. 

And lastly my first attempt at making an easy child's apron.  Easy because there is no tying bows so little people can easily slip the apron on.  Also, because it is lined I was able to make it reversible.  Gotta love easy!  Here is where I found the instructions for this apron. http://sewliberated.typepad.com/Montessori%20Childs%20Apron.pdf
Obviously I have a bit of adjusting to do...way to long and ummm well doesn't look very "manly" to me, even though the prints are airplane and fire.  My little guy was just thrilled though - because of the fire print - he thinks it is super cool

Thank you for stopping by - have a fantastic week.
