Let the fun begin!! School is out for the summer, which not only means that we have Katie home to have fun with us, but Dad gets to be home too since he's a teacher. (Although Dad went voluntarily to a training meeting today...so it's just me and the kids hanging together today.) I completely forgot to take "Last Day of School" pictures likes last year. Oh, well.
quilt I helped Katie's kindergarten class make for last year's event. Last year, we were raising money to fund research for histiocytosis because our friend/neighbor's son had beat it twice, but more research was needed. This year it's back...again. Jackson, my friend's son (and now one of our closest our neighbor since we moved) is going through his third round of chemotherapy for histiocytosis.
The kids had a blast riding their bikes. Seth amazed us by riding and impressive 12 miles on his little bike. Katie rode 11 miles. Becca road about half a mile on her tricycle and then rode in Dad's bike trailer.
Anson hung out with me at the Raffle booth most of the time.
I made this quilt for the raffle. I dropped some hints about it earlier. I'll share more details about it
I'm hoping I'll be able to check in a little more often to share the projects I've got piling up. The main crafty/home project this summer is putting a yard in (right now we've got over 1/3 an acre of dirt to tame.) I'm also hoping to do some sewing projects with the kids, some kids cooking fun, and some reading/writing projects in with the kiddos. We'll see how it goes.
