I love purple. As I kid I always wanted a purple bedroom and my mother would never let me. Apparently she had a purple bedroom as a child and got tired of it quickly. That never happens to me. Purple comes in too many fun shades from lavender to violet with all the shades in between. I pulled the sewing machine down onto the kitchen table yesterday to whip up a couple of #FullStop blocks and worked up tutorials for a blocky and fancy version of this month's semi colon. (scroll down for those). Anna also wanted 4 new masks for camp as kids under 12 are not yet vaccinated, they are still taking precautions. She will leave for the summer tomorrow, and though I will miss her, it does mean I will have a sewing room again. She is SO excited to be back teaching sailing again. Ryan and Sydney will still be here though, so it isn't quite an empty nest yet.

I am still adding little log cabin blocks to the red wall. It is a slow and steady process. Other than a few more Sister's Choice blocks, think that red is ready to go. I will need to clean everything up again for my oldest who will be home from college for a very short stay before heading off to summer camp. The middle child is back and working for the summer. That just leaves the youngest with one more year of high school.
Just 8 more school days and teachers are running away like rats from a drowning ship. I volunteered to host a retirement party on Tuesday for our exiting science teachers. Each day there is a new rumor of someone else leaving. It is easy to be unhappy right now, but things can't stay this way forever.

Just 18 more school days. Not that anyone is counting. 15 before graduation and 4 before my big AP test. Again, not that we are all counting days. I always tell the kids that they should try to just enjoy where they are now and not wish their lives away. Still, I have to believe that next school year will be more normal.
