Back to School

Yes, school has already started here... very early I know. I have been so very busy home-schooling the kids. Today went better so I think we are starting to develop some sort of established routine. Here is a picture of Gentry right before school on Monday. Rene' put the kids in the car "to go to school", drove them around the neighborhood, pulled back up at our house where I met them at the door introducing myself as their teacher and welcoming them to school, etc. Then I took them into my room to find their desks set up with name tags and everything. They couldn't stop giggling! I have been completely worn out each day, but Rene' says the kids can't stop talking about how great school is, so I guess I'm doing something right. LOL! I think I'm going to have to increase my coffee consumption though. ;c) Right now they are having their weekly visit to the library with Daddy, so I finally have a moment to post here.

I have still been working on the two projects for Gentry. His quilt only needs 7 more blocks quilted and I have at least 75% of the cross-stitch done. We are just under two weeks away from his birthday and I need to allow myself a week for the binding, so I need to get those remaining blocks finished this weekend.

I started cutting out the pieces to frame Hailey's block for the RR. We'll see if I can get this block done by the weekend too, as it needs to be in the mail no later than the 15th.

with school starting so early do you take longer breaks or have shorter teaching days or what?

my grandson started school on Tuesday this week - just too early if you ask me. LOL

Gentry looks adorable. I admire your commitment and diligence I couldn't do what you're doing!
