After a great weekend, I’m back at the grindstone of work. Sunday we did go see Superman, I loved it. Don wasn’t real crazy about it. More of a chick flick than you would think.

I finished the appliqué on My MIL’s gift. It’s half quilted too. Of course, I ran out of thread, so I’m going to pick up some this afternoon and get it finished, hopefully tonight.

I had 10 4 /5 year olds in Sunday school yesterday. We’ve been taking a letter of the alphabet every 2 weeks and talking about all the things we’re thankful for that God gives us. The letter this week was… you guessed it… Q … for Quilts. We painted, some kids did pictures others sort of painted themselves, but it was an outstanding class.

The kids are having a blast in Nashville. They call us rubbing it in on the southern vacation. I think I’m going to try to whip a little something together this week for their chaperone. She’s taking care of a pretty important commodity…my kids.
Hopefully I’ll have pictures tomorrow.

Gratitudes:
1. Sunday afternoon walks
2. Coke Icees
3. Cold fronts in the Summer Time, cools the hottest of days

Isn't it something that even your 4/5 yrold class knows what is important.

I was just catching up on your blog, since I've been gone, and realized your kids are down here in 'my backyard'. If they need to know where a few good quilt shops are located (so they can bring you back a wonderful souvenir), just let me know :-). I hope they are having fun, the weather has cooled down quite a bit, and the humidity is lower than normal, so they are visiting at the right time.
I hope they have a great visit & safe trip home. Enjoy the quiet week home.
:-) Kim

Reading your postings is like sitting on the front porch on a summer evening. I get such a peaceful feeling of the way we all used to live.
Thank you.
