YIKES!!!

The weather finally turns decent.....


Todd's out as we speak discing the 2 acre corn field we plant. Just enough to feed our animals for the year, but tomorrow night might be his only night to get it planted before he gets busy at work. There is talk they are going to have to work Monday (sigh)....


Here's my block 4 for the Quilt A Long:


And 1 preschool teacher bag:


I'm frantically sewing on the other 2. I realized I need something for Tyler's speech teacher. I would just go buy her something, but she loved my chicken bag. And we are so thankful for her for working so hard with Tyler to teach him how to say "truck" (he substituted "f" for the "tr" - use your imaginations!!!). He's getting better . . .still slips sometimes especially when he is in a hurry. Dump truck was another thing she is working with him on (he drops the "p" so it sounds like dum *uck - you get the idea).


So it will be a late night for all of us (Todd and I). Jessie's in bed, Tyler is on his way there. . . .


Gotta LOVE Spring.

That's so funny about your son! But I can understand why you'd want to work on the correct pronunciation with him! lol! I love your chicken block, too. Its really cute. And your block 4 looks great, too.

Block 4..oh my I'm 4 weeks behind. I hope to start tomorrow. Cheers for a dedicated speech teacher! I know some teens who would like to use that as an excuse for their "slips".

I can see why you would be grateful to his teacher. It's still kinda funny though.

Your block looks really nice, I love the blues. I'm currently working on mine. I will try to finish and post a picture tomorrow.

Love the idea of giving your kids teachers bags as thank you gifts! Glad to hear Tylers Speech Therapy is coming along - no doubt it has caused some funny moments!

Oh, I know your pain with the dumb trucks, my oldest did the same thing, and he loved his Daddy's truck!

Lucky teachers, to get such a nice gift! You are a Wonder Mother!

All that and you still have time to do a Quilt Along?? it is beautiful!
