Costume help

image

Jemma helped me cut out a ballet costume on Saturday.  I was sewing on something else while she was cutting and as soon as she was done, I started sewing what she was working on.  She has also helped me tear out some seams.

Some more soccer.

My friend Zina took pictures of Justin at the soccer game last Friday.

image

Justin is the main goalie for the JV 1 team.

image

At least you can always find him in his green jersey.

When Bill saw this picture, he wanted to know why a penalty wasn’t called on the other kid!image

More food lab results

image

Last week, Melissa Norwood, who I met last fall at Thanksgiving Day in the City, came and taught my students how to decorate cupcakes.  These were some of the best.

image

Before spring break we made pies.  I hardly eat anything they make, but this group of students brought strawberry rhubarb filling for their pies.  Rhubarb anything is my favorite.  It was so good.

 

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.

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

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.

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.

Soccer season

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

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.
