I need to choose just ONE idea by tomorrow and assemble my fabric packages for my turn at The Busy Little Quilting Bee. Hmmm... I'd better get a wiggle on!
**Edit: Cupcakes or green/red crosses or chickens...I guess I'd better narrow it down a bit more!

This is now a wall hanging (needs binding)
Busy little bee blocks ready for the mail!(one more to go!)
I didn't print the blocks, but I put the quilt together. (cute, yes?)
I also finished binding hat silly nephew quilt, but a pic'll have to wait cause I didn't take one.

I teach a letter of the week and like to build my themes(pumpkins, dogs...)around the letter AND seasonally. This summer, I took a curriculum development class and LOVED it. My final project was a curriculum for rocks. Fun. Today, I'm pondering the letter Cc. I really want to develop a thematic curriculum for it. BUT...Do I want to teach Clouds or Caterpillars?? There are great books, and activities I can think of for both! If I do one this year, I can do the other next year...But which one is more fun today?
Circle caterpillars with google eyes...butterfly life-cycle...The very Hungry Caterpillar...coffee filter butterflies...
It looked like spilt milk...cotton balls...rain...water cycle...umbrellas...snow...
Hmmmm....(these are the things I ponder) Wanna see some of it when I'm done??

My parents have a fig tree! And a plum tree! The pears came from their neighbor...Pear butter maybe?! I promised the boys a plummy treat if the picked the tree clean! They did it. (Grandpa helped and taught R how to use the lopper. Fun) Plum Kuchen? We ate some of the figs chopped in vanilla yogurt with toasted pecans and mini chocolate chips. I liked it.
A day for sewing and baking! YAY!...The trick will be staying on task...

Now, I get to do it again tomorrow! Two first days in a row is exhausting...I am looking forward to Monday when we'll all know each other a bit and have an idea about the routine. Whew!! I'm already planning a long sleep in on Saturday. Off to cook dinner and crash out!
My own boys had good first day too! They were is such good moods when I picked them up!!
First day part 2; My little ones are so very cute, too! And busy. Whew! Catch-phrase of the day: "Shouting is not sharing" (sharing is hard. and sitting still and using a chair(only required at snack) and lining up and waitingfor your turn) Whew! (but no fussers!)I think these guys'll catch on quick!
