In the works…

Theses last two weeks as the school year is coming to an end, teacher’s cards and gifts have been in the works. My head has been spinning with all the end of the year activities and filed trips. All have been enjoyable. Father’s Day presents have been purchased and are on their way to our home for my husband. We have a CD Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Journey on its way. It is from our youngest to her father, because each time my husband, who is a big Journey fan, hears one of the Journey tuned lullaby songs on Pandora he starts to hum and sing along. My husband is also likes Michael Lewis’ books. Lewis’ book Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood is also on its way; an apropos choice for Father’s Day! My father-in-law’s gift is in the mail as of this morning; I’m hoping it makes it there in time. Teacher’s gifts were handed out this morning and afternoon. Two days left of school, and one preschool performance. I must admit I was a little teary-eyed writing my oldest son’s teacher a thank you card last night. She has been such a blessing to us and to our son this school year!

I’ve been planning a Hungry Caterpillar themed first birthday party for our daughter. I bought this fabric
(The Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Bundle) from the Fat Quarter Shop:
HungryCaterpillarHB-bundle-200
to make a first birthday quilt.
I bought this fabric (Kona Bright Pink and Hungry Caterpillar Dots fabric)
Kona-K001-1049-200

TheVeryHungryCaterpillar-3474-M-200
to add to the quilt and to make a first birthday dress or shirt. I haven’t decided on that yet!

On a different note, my children and I went on a walk this evening. We left wearing a total of six shoes, and returned with only five shoes. My youngest son while kicking a bread roll into the pond at our local golf course sent his shoe flying. Imagine the surprise when the worker who was present and diving for golf balls in the pond finds that shoe. 😉 My youngest son wasn’t amused at the situation as he strolled home on his scooter donning one shoe. My oldest son, had to be shushed a few times because he thought it was hilarious. I’m not sure why we kept the other shoe, perhaps with optimistic thinking the diver we saw will throw it back on the side and we’ll find it on our next walk. Perhaps.
