Honors Night

image

Before spring break, Cimarron middle school had Honors night.

image

She made Cimarron’s honor roll because she has had a gpa above 3.5 for two semester.  She also made the honor society because her grades are in the top 10% of her class for two semester.

She works very hard to maintain her grades.  I’m so proud of how hard she works.

5 in all

image

I’ve finished 5 quilts since February 12th.

image

Three of them I only put the outside boarders on and quilted them.

image

image

This is one I did everything on.

image

 

I also made all of this on.

Now I need to concentrate on sewing for the ballet, except for making Will’s quilt for graduation.

 

Spring Break Birthdays

image

Bill and Justin had birthdays over break.   Justin turned 16.  I just realized I didn’t get a picture of him blowing out the candles.  Ugh!

I got a picture of the cake.  I saw this idea on Pinterest.  It’s just white cake, divided three ways, then add in different food coloring to get the different colors in the layers.  You could make more layers.

I made a Buckeye cake for Bill.  Chocolate, peanut butter, and brownies.

Everyone helped

image

Everyone helped in the spring break project.

image

It took everyone to hang my new light.

Justin scraped the ceilings,  Jemma helped tape off everything, Will helped with the crowne molding and several other things too, and I did all the painting.

A couple of before pictures with furniture removed.

image

Ceilings scraped,  ceiling and walls painted, crowne molding, new light fixture, and furniture back in.

image

We finished the dining room first.  Bill hung the silverware chest that was my grandma’s silverware in it.  It holds a service for 19.

image

image

We did all the same things in the sewing/office room.

I especially like my new light fixture I got at Lowes.

Cinderella

image

Will’s last musical performance at high school was Cinderella this past weekend.  This is the only picture I was able to get of him in a costumes.   It was a wonderful show.

image

The rest of this post could be called the different faces of my niece Samantha.  She got pictures taken with all the princesses that were in the show and Prince Christopher.

With Cinderella in her 80’s wedding dress.

image

With Belle from Beauty and the Beast.  Belle went to Sonshine School with Justin.

image

With princess Ariel from Little Mermaid.

image

With Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.

image

With Snow White.

image

With Rapunzel.  Samantha loved the performance and meeting the princesses.

Soccer season

image

Outdoor soccer season has started.  Justin is in the goal again this year playing on the JV1 team at Edmond Memorial high school.

image

He’s not quite done with indoor season.  Here’s some of his teammates that go to church with him and some friends from church.

 

More finished projects on snow days.

image

Bill got this light hung in the hallway on a recent snow day.  The light has been missing for probably 2 years.  I finally decided on one I liked.  I’d kind of forgot we hadn’t replaced it.

image

I got another quilt finished.  The woman I teach with pieced this one except for the outer boarders.  I just put the boarders on, quilted it, then put the binding on.

Eagle decorations.

image

When it comes to decorating for different events it tends to  stress me out.

image

When it came to Will’s Eagle ceremony, I had lots of ideas from Pinterest and Colton’s mom, Jamey, had some great ideas too.

image

image

Each of the boys had their own table with their boy scout memorabilia, this is Colton’s table.

image

This is Will’s table.  The red blanket has all the patches he has earned from cub scouts and boy scouts.

image

The cake was made by Melissa Norwood.  I met her during Thanksgiving Day in the City.  She’s also come to my classes at school.

Eagle Ceremony

image

On Sunday, we had Will and Colton Hodge’s Eagle Ceremony.

image

Will completed his project last June, and did his Board of Review in August when he was officially declared an Eagle Scout.

The parents are awarded special pins from the scouts.  Will gave me a hug right after he gave me a pin.

image

The moms present the boys with their Eagle pins.

image

Justin along with some other scouts from our church presented the flag and led the Pledge of Allegiance.

image

The ceremony was 10 min. late starting because Will’s nose wouldn’t quit bleeding.
