Where did my time go?

Boy, this school thing has really put a cramp in my style. All that free time I had in the evenings once the kids were in bed is gone! Now, I have to do my school work instead of quilting and watching movies/shows! Sniff. I haven't even finished the baby quilt for the baby shower tomorrow. It will get done but I didn't do two of them, that's for sure. It turns out I won't even be able to go to the shower because it's Back to School Night for Hannah. Next week we will be at Simon's school for his Back to School Night. I still don't get why they do the "back to school thing" after schools been going for a few weeks. Shouldn't it be before school starts? I've never understood that.

Since I haven't blogged in a week I'll recap. Highlight some of the fun stuff. Like splashing in the water with cool rain boots. After all, isn't that what rain boots are for? He managed to run in the water and completely soak all of his clothes. Underwear too.

We also took the monkey to the zoo with his friend Chloe.

What zoo trip wouldn't be complete without a train ride? Tiff and talked about how much cooler the train at the Denver Zoo is. At the Denver Zoo it's a small train, on a track not wheels, and it goes around a bigger area so you can see a lot more stuff. This one goes in a small circle 3 times. Seth loved it though. It is still a train to him! I see a trip to Allaire State Park in our future where he can ride a real train again.

Well, I'll show you the baby quilt almost done. Literally all it needs is one more side sewn down on the biding and a label.

Quilt measures 30.5 x 36.5

Close up of my lovely stipple... ok, it's not all that lovely but I am getting better at it.

I love the backing. The purple daisies are so cute!

I'll have to deliver the second baby quilt I wanted to make to the other mama at a later date. Oops. Haven't even started on it. My free time is all gone. I also get to throw in lots of other fun stuff too to keep me busy. My quilt guild meeting, two PTO meetings, and Back to School Night are all this week. I also can't neglect little Seth all day so he has activities too. Craft, story time, etc.

I might start to develop a slight twitch.
