A dirndl is a German dress. I looked at one today. It was very cute, but not well made. I have been thinking of buying one for Sarah's first school day on Friday. The problem is Sarah doesn't care for it. I also bought her purple shoes. They were her choice. So now I have a simple white turtle neck and a purple stripped sweater,white tights, a simple tan jumper, and her purple shoes. The shoes are cute. Sarah has decided she loves pink and purple. Very funny, but I think my tom boy is actually becoming a little princess! Only 3 more sleeps until my baby goes to first grade. I have had fun with her this week. We watched a movie this morning called Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs . I cried when the son askes his non tech dad to send him an e-mail! If you haven't seen it, do. It is cute!
