A Spring Break Finish



Well, not a lot happened on spring break for us, but I did manage to finish the Prairie Schooler July pattern. I was pretty pleased with the way this one turned out, although I don't really care for that gigantic bluebird on the top. I also started the LHN Battle Hymn pattern and am about 75% of the way done with this.

I got lots done around the house, cleaning, tidying up, etc. Jonathon spent the week just hanging out at home and going to soccer practice. Sometimes it is good to just relax.

We, of course like most of the Midwest got about a foot of snow on the first day of spring. It is almost melted though and didn't last long. I couldn't believe how green the grass underneath the snow was, I don't remember it being that green on Friday.

Have a great week.

Impatiently Waiting

Spring Break and major stitching time is right around the corner and I honestly can hardly wait. The kids at school are getting the spring fever buzz in anticipation for the big break. When they get this way all common sense goes out the door in a flash. Case in point--today one of them swallowed a pop tab. Mom had to come and get said child take them to the emergency room for x-rays. We don't have pop at school and generally don't allow it on the premises unless a teacher brings it for a reward. So you see the weeklong break can not come soon enough. God only knows what they will eat or ________ (let your imagination run free..)

Jonathon and I have some very simple plans-- we are going to hang out at home and do whatever we feel like when we feel like doing it. I bought myself a little present for spring break. Everyone has been laughing at me for it, but I got myself a collection of all of the Walton movies to watch. I can't wait for Saturday so I can get out my stitching and sit back and enjoy.

I don't have any stitching pics or updates to show as I spent most of last week trying to keep my knee propped up so the swelling from being on my feet all day would go down somewhat.

This weekend I my father-in-law turned 85. We had a celebration for him in the little town not far from where he was born and raised. Several old friends and family stopped by to wish him well and a good time was had by all. This is a picture of my husband, his siblings and their dad that was taken that day.
