News update

Now that we're back from vacation I thought it was time to post an update as to what's going on in our household. We all enjoyed our trip to North Carolina. The weather wasn't shorts weather but we were able to golf comfortably in long sleeves and pants a few days. Zach carded his first birdie on the par 5 16th hole of Beacon Ridge (the course we belong to down in NC) He shot a 43 for the back nine that day. He was very excited and is trying hard to make the high school golf team next year. John and I spent part of the week looking at houses as a possible investment property We're leaning toward one but need to spend a bit more time crunching the numbers.

On the quilting front during our drives to and from North Carolina I was able to finish up the binding on three quilts. Both boys have waited patiently for their quilts and they were immediately put on their beds when we returned home. The Hungry Caterpillar quilt will spend some time at school in the spring for the kids to enjoy while we read the story.

Ready for a vacation

We've been blessed to have a few days that haven't been sub zero but it makes me want to see spring even sooner. We're looking forward to a week in North Carolina, hopefully we can get some golf in and relax under those Carolina blue skies. I'm also hoping to finish up three quilts. All have been quilted and are ready for the hand sewing part of the binding. I'll post pictures when they're finished.

Last week I went to the scheduling meeting for Zach to go to high school. It's so hard to believe that he's going to be in high school. It just seems like yesterday that he started kindergarten. Kiddos sure do grow up fast.
