A Turtle start

Good afternoon. After a stormy, rainy morning it's going to be a steamy afternoon. Grand Rapids is suppose to reach 90 I don't know if we will.

Last week was a busy week. My niece, her husband and children were in town from VA Mon.-Wed. It was great to see them again. We had only seen Scott who is 4 when he was 2 months ago. We had not seen Connor who is 3 or Emma who just turned 2 before. They were cute. Hope it's not another 4 years before we see them again. Amanda isn't looking too forward to doing the trip every year though. Like all little girls Emma loves the movie Frozen. I don't quite get why little girls like it so well, but I do like that song "Let It Go" We took the kids to the park Tuesday as they had so much energy and needed to run. That was a lot of fun. Next year they'll have a baby to add so it will be 4 small children. Also my sister came in for the weekend.

My sister and I went to Jo Ann Fabrics and I got material and floss and a cute book by Stoney Creek called Bug Babies. So I now have Woodland Babies (this turtle is from that book), Farm Babies, and Sea Babies. Wonder if there are anymore of those animal baby books.

I can't believe how early school starts in some places. My little great niece, Chelsea started Kindergarten Aug. 13. She loves it. My niece-law-posted a picture of her on facebook doing her first homework assignment. Kindergarten and they have homework already. Although Addie told me in Kindergarten they were teach computer so I shouldn't be surprised. My great nephew, Nick, who will be 5 in Sept. started school today so I'm wondering how he likes it. He lives in CO and Chelsea lives in MO. Yes, our family is all over the USA!

Well....until next time....Happy Stitching

They were teach computer should have read they were teaching computer in Kindergarten. My brain raced ahead of me.
