It's been a long week! State science fair was finishing up just as spring break was starting. That was when Anna won best of show. She was a little surprised. There are actually 8 "Best of Show" awards for the entire state, so the odds are pretty good if you make it to first. She has never finished above second at state though, so she was really thrilled.
Just as the girls got home from that, Kurt and I hopped off for a quick grown up trip to Jamaica. Three days of all inclusive relaxation with lots of food and adult beverages. So nice! Kurt's dad came to stay with the kids and they had lots of nice family time together.
I spent some time hanging out on the balcony of our room sewing up hexies. Lots of prep work happened during the traveling part. Even on bumpy and curvy roads, it is still easy enough to baste hexies. I even thought far enough ahead to bring along some yellow for April!
Just as we were landing, Ryan was finishing up his robotics tournament. His team didn't get a bid to worlds this year, but they did win the control award. Ryan was pretty happy about that because he is the head of software which is integral for robot control. They even let him bring the trophy home for the break!
This morning we are off on one last college visit. It will be decision time for Anna soon. I think she'll finally make a final call after this. Just 31 school days until graduation. Hard to believe how quickly it has all happened.
Back on the sewing front, I am looking forward to a month of sunshine and happiness. Yellow is such a great color to add light to your quilt. It is easy to go overboard, but in small doses, I have really become a fan. I'll get my sewing room back on Sunday so more yellow scraps are sure to come out to play.
