Housekeeping


I'm feeling very virtuous after spending time today organizing, ironing and cutting scraps. My scrap basket is entirely empty! I dug down through the last year of leftovers and turned them into tidy strips and squares and such. When done with that, I ironed the new fabric fresh out of the laundry and started in on my bucket of cut up shirts. Yikes, no wonder I needed that afternoon nap today! I kept cutting more tumbler blocks from the shirts, but I'm not down to the bottom of those yet. Sydney wanted to help and had lots of fun turning the crank on the GO cutter.
The kids are starting to get excited about starting a new year of school. There is just one week of vacation left for them and Wednesday is the big day when they get to go in to meet their teachers and do all the registration stuff. It's also my first day of preplanning meetings, so that will be a lot of fun juggling. Kurt is usually available to hang out with them during the few days that don't overlap, but he's got important meetings those days. The kids are excited about having babysitters though, so life is good.

Heya lady...still hard to believe you head back this week for teacher inservices already! I'm looking forward to these next two weeks of having no schedule before I completely call it quits on my summer.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME motivation to tackle all your ironing and scraps!!! I don't think I'll ever get done with that.
