Orange you glad that we are almost done with purple? I'm not so much done as I would like, but I am still looking forward to digging into orange on Monday. So I wasn't an academic team coach this year, but somehow they needed a female chaperone at the last minute and I got pulled in. The team ended up finishing second in the state for division 1 with one of the members being named to Team Florida. The competitions have always been at Disney in the past with the kids spending time between matches at the parks. Florida has a thing about Disney now so we had to switch the dates and venue. Just when you think it can't get stranger. The kids had fun at the resort though, they played mini golf and splashed in the pools. The end of the school year is coming on fast! Senior breakfast was yesterday, AP testing starts on Monday and graduation will be here before we can imagine.

Thanks to the long Easter Weekend, I finally got some purple blocks up on the wall. It felt so good to just dig in and start putting scraps together.

There is an extra day this weekend to sew with the Easter holiday. Looking forward to a nice walk on the beach and some time with the machine.
How are your purple scraps coming together? Misterlinky is below, please share with us all.

A new month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge means a new color and we are ready to do a deep dive into purple!
I wish I could claim to have made great progress on green. These three tiny green blocks tell a different story. I do have plenty of pieces cut for plus blocks and sawtooth stars, so they will continue as leaders and enders while I sort through purple.
I think that April will still be busy at work with dual enrollment things, but May will have to slow down as most of my time will be devoted to monitoring standardized tests. Our school district has had quite a week with two principals and a guidance counselor all arrested for driving drunk last weekend and then the interim superintendent being put on leave on Tuesday. It is all quite a mess, but it isn't my mess and I will keep doing what I do. Prom was last night, we still have senior projects and grad bash to get through, and of course, graduation. Seniors are making their college choices now and it is always exciting for them to plan the next steps.
