Oh, by the way. I got a job. I start Monday. I will be working at the Turtle Lake McDonald's M-W-F. It isn't the best job, but at this point, a paycheck IS a paycheck, and any little bit helps. Plus, this McD's has a tuition savings/matching program which will help me with my schooling as well.
Happy Day.

ER fun--maybe

I got to drive the kids (John, Alisha, Emily & a friend) up to Duluth for a youth activity. They were going to help clean up Point Park on the strip of land on the other side of the Duluth Lift Bridge. I dropped them off, and went into Duluth to do some shopping. When I got back, I was going to write my essay for my class. Well, John (& Jenny) and one of the leaders comes up to the car to tell me that John got his face cut with a shovel. He was leaning down as someone else with a shovel was going up. The shovel & face connected. It was pretty deep, so I took him to the ER there in Duluth. Not too bad. We got right in. Just the usual waiting in the room to switch between admitting nurse, PA, & other nurse, etc... We got to watch the food channel for a while, and then Bob Ross (can you say, happy little clouds?) Emily & Jenny came too, so there were lots of laughs & giggles. He got 3 stitches & a nice black eye. Then we went back to the park to pick up Alisha & Rachel. We stopped at Culvers on our way home because being at the ER, we missed lunch.
Interesting Day to be sure.

Circle of Life

I realized I haven't posted a quilt picture for quite a long time, so here is the last one finished. (and that was in April!!!) I do have several in progress, though. :-)

First day of school

Well, there it was. The first day of school. The last time of sending all 6 kids off to school together. John is a senior. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was dragging him into his kindergarten class and leaving him with his teacher. :-) Alisha is a Junior, so the kids will be leaving one by one very quick. Emily is a Freshman which means that I have 3 kids in high school! Michael is in 7th grade. 4 kids at our grade 7-12 school. Wow. Sarah is in 3rd grade. John was in 3rd grade when we moved here. Daniel is in 1st grade. No more pre-school/kindergarten events.
Feeling a bit nostalgic, I guess.
till next time.
