Past and present life!

What a great week! I am exhausted but it was fun!!! I will go backwards....it's eaiser for me....

Friday, my younger daughter had her 8th grade class trip to Sea World in Orlando. The day started out like a normal school day then around 2pm the kids had a pizza party in the cafeteria. By 3pm they boarded the charter buses. She called me around 8pm and was having fun and eating ice cream! I think they left the park around midnight and then she called me around 2:30AM and I had to meet her at the middle school. There were many other sleepy - groggy parents there to pick up their equally sleepy - groggy kids!! But everyone had a good time and that is all that matters!

On Wednesday my older daughter had her JROTC brigade awards ceremony. I got some of my old friends from my JROTC days together too. We were hoping that our old Army instructor would be there as well but he wasn't able to make it. I am so proud of my daughter as she got a medal that night and we presented an award to one of the high schools in the name of our old instructor. Then after it was over we went to dinner. It was so great to see everyone again. This fall in Oct is my 30th class reunion and I can't wait to see my old friends. The group that I was with this week though are more important then the whole class. We spent more time together and had more fun in school than should be allowed. Now we have to figure out how to see each other more often!

On Thursday night we had a showcase of talent at my elementary school. The kids put on a play and they were awesome! I have never been more proud of the kids in our school. There was art work on display as well as the science fair projects. It was a great night and this time I was the teacher and not the parent and it was nice to be on the other side for a change. It was fun watching the parents being dragged around by their kids to see it all.

So today I am just resting, reading some email and learning how to use my new cell phone. It has lots of new features and I am trying to figure it all out. When that doesn't work I just ask my 16 year old and she tells me. LOL...yesterday I went to get my eyes checked out and ordered my new reading glasses. Can't wait for them to come in.

I think I might sew for a while. Big deal you say, but this time I am going to be working on a quilt that was started a few months back and I want to get it done. I did finish 2 quilts last week and still have many more to do but I like getting them done!

Only about 5 more weeks of school and then summer break. I am trying to figure out what I want to do this summer.....I know I will be making some new clothes for school next year and I think I will also really start working on cleaning out my studio and finishing more quilts!

Until next time!!!
