All last week, I've been working to get my classroom ready for the new school year. Posters, tape, staples, up and down the ladder numerous times, washing desks inside and out, labeling, moving furniture, making each bulletin board a work of art, visiting with returning staff, filing curriculum, another new beginning.
Tomorrow starts Teacher's meetings. Next week the students will be in the classrooms, ah, the cycle begins again. This is my 6th year at second grade, my first group at grade 2 will be graduating from 8th, and they will be leaving our campus for other times of their life. I'm glad to be a part of the children's lives at West Covina Christian School.
A new semester of my Monday night quilting class begins tonight. I'm home (not prepping in my own classroom) sewing today, since I won't get another chance to choose to stay home after today, yep, the denial thing is still in full swing, lol!
This is a quilt that Ginny and I worked on for her great nephew, another Bakan boy.
She wanted something to do with the piggy print (Bakan-bacon, get it?)
but was trying to not major on the pink of the pigs.
We both like the back of it the best-!
This is another quilt, this time a Prayer quilt for my dear friend Vicky's grandson Jake. He has a serious medical issue, that's going to require surgery on his spine. Jake's great aunt has a gift from the quilters at her church who made this with love and prayers. The tag reads:
Jake's favorite thing of all time is Lightnin' McQueen from the movie "Cars".
He is gonna love this! Please join me in prayer for Jake. Since this was diagnosed, today is the first meeting with specialists.
I'm sewing on a few fun things, including the next Block Lotto blocks that are a secret, hope to share later. Hope you're making the most of your day today, too!
