Check in time........

Tomommor begins the fourth week of school..... that is so hard to believe. Mid-terms are the week of October 3rd... I can't believe we are almost through the first half of the first marking period. We have a really good group of kids this year and I'm looking forward to working with them.

Well to make that official, the upper respiratory crud is making its way through school.... and I'm fighting it. So far so good.

I try to work on my hexies each evening... or almost each evening. I did get two blocks sewn last night for the Christmas block exchange at guild. Felt good to get my hands on the machine.

So today I spent napping, grocery shopping, and reading the latest Bennie Harper quilt mystery "Spider Web"... I want to get this read, I really enjoy Earlene Fowler's books.

Ok, I'm off to read.

I made it through the first week.... giveaway

The first week is done, and I made it. I was seriously exhausted by Friday night and just crashed in the lazy boy for two hours. I've got a good group of kids this year. Hopefully things will continue this well for the rest of the year. I have a student who recently moved from Oxfordshire, England. I'm not sure if he's bored or homesick.... but I'm sure he will be ok.

So in honor of the first week.. I've gone through the stash/scraps and packed up another box. If you want/need some new stuff, please leave a comment telling me your favorite school memory. Make sure I can contact you (email please and no anonymous comments.) Also, I'm sorry but I have to restrict this to domestic US only... shipping this overseas would be a bit dicey.

Let's make this a quickie.... deadline is Monday, September 5 at 4 pm EST.  What a great Labor Day giftie this will be for someone.

Oh.. isn't Abby just the cutest??!!!
