We are closing in on the end of the school year! Excuse me as I lose consciousness over that fact.
Okay, I'm better. I can't believe it is seriously the end of the year. Most of the academic stuff that was going to happen in Christian's class has happened. From now on it's smooth sailing. They are still learning a ton of stuff, but the heavy duty material has been covered, and they have done their standardized testing.
This means something for me...stitching every morning until they're done or the year is over. Of course, the first non-Friday that I was supposed to be there we had a terrible start to our day and I missed the whole thing. Nice! They don't call me The Crazy Stitching Lady for nothing!
I thought I would do a quick update, and show you the next-to-the-last square they are working on. It's cute...
I know the outline on the material doesn't show up that well, but it's Paddington Bear. Mrs. C. read the book to the class, and they have several class activities that are based on things that Paddington did. One of those things was the Sandcastle Competition. Another is an Art Contest, and yet another is a Tea Party. Those two things will converge tomorrow, with the judging of the students' art at the Very Formal Tea Party.
The class made us fancy hats to wear! We are using china and silver. The real stuff! We will be saying things like,"One lump or two?"
I wonder how many lumps will be in my throat while I'm watching this scene? I hope I don't cry. But I know I will.
Anyway, I have more to accomplish tonight than I can actually do, but I'm going to try! So, I've got to get back to work...but tomorrow I'll have pictures from the party, and I will probably do another update soon on the stitching.
Thank you for your patience as I piece this story together! Just a little quilting humor, there. Ha! I crack myself up.
