We are still in school around here until June 10th! Doesn't that seem horribly long!? :)

Both of my boys received 4's on their EOG's! Basically you can score a 1,2,3 or 4. If you score 1 or 2, you have to retake the three tests! (ugh), 3 is average, and 4 is smartie pants! :) These tests are so long, and after you take them, you have to sit for the entire time allotted. Not even any reading, I guess kids were hurrying to finish the tests, so they could read? Anyway, you can draw on your scrap papers, but all papers have to be turned in with the tests! The longest test was 2 1/2 hrs! Can you imagine?! :) They survived and obviously thrived!

But now, we're full into all the end of year stuff!

Class parties
Class picnics
Field day
Projects due
Field trips

Plus DH is doing all the last minute stuff for our summer it's getting crazy around these here parts! We will work for a week in a low-income single parent child care facility, and also an adult assisted living center for handicapped people. I have to finish up the curriculum we'll use for them. We're going to use the same for should work just fine!

I also have to figure out what to pack for three people (DH takes care of himself!) for being gone Mid June-Mid August! We need not too much and not too little! :) We won't be home except for five days during that period. We've got to get everybody haircuts! :) Got to organize the house, cause somebody will most likely stay here to check the mail, mow the grass and watch the cat! Priorities, you know! LOL

Not seeing much stitching time anytime soon! Just stitching on any of my Friendship RR's that I get before I leave.

Luke's field day is in an hour, I need to get moving! We'll be outside for 3 hours in an open field, and it's only supposed to be 87 today! UGH! :)

Sounds busy! Cindy has mailed the RR to me early so I will get it to you ASAP. This will be the June 15th mailing for me to you to be mailed by June 30th. Make sense? LOL Camp sounds like fun!

We don't finish up school until June 12...yet, it always seems like the kids are done learning around mid-May (except for my 7th grader who is overwhelmed by the last minute projects). Off to stitch RRs myself.
Take care!
