Summer Break

Breanna finished school last week.
She loved it, and especially with the help of her incredible teacher, Mrs. Anderson.
She is wishing she would decide to teach first grade next year. =)

Here are a few pics of the past week:
Sweet little "boots" boy.
Checking to see if the alfalfa is dry enough to bale in the morning.
Running through the fields.
We sure do love this place!
We had a wonderful time in Idaho, but I didn't take many pictures.  A few of the kids at convention.
Mommy's sweethearts, we missed Daddy on Father's Day.
With Grandma.
We had a wonderful time, but the kids were so happy to be home again, too.
Making sure the mud still works.
Trying to be as tall as Levi?
We got home yesterday afternoon, and all I wanted to do was have a nap.  I stuck Andy in bed, told the kids to play quietly, and got to do just that.
When I woke up, the door was open- Levi had snuck in with these pretty flowers that he said he thought I'd like.  He's a little sweetie, with a great role model (daddy).
Barb, who made me the felted wool slippers, asked if I'd make her an apron out of this flour sack from a friend who got it while traveling.
Just before leaving, I made this quilted tote.
Various aqua prints, and a few khaki's.  I love these colors!
Reminds me of the beach.

I'm planning to make my first circle quilt out of these same fabrics.
But first, I need to finish up some "have-to" projects.  And the house is finally in order, and the laundry done; so I can actually enjoy sewing, guilt-free!

It looks like the perfect place to have some summer fun! I envy kids their long hot summers, and realise now I should have enjoyed them more when I was a kid!

Lovely tote Lisa!

Glad you had a good time at Parma! And glad you have a good time in Madras as well! Tell the kids that all the cousins out here were haying last and this week. Well watching haying. So they were doing it at the same time!
