Memorial Day Weekend

I'm back! It's been a while since I posted...lots going on. The school year is winding down in first grade ...between state testing, DRA2's, report cards (4th 9 weeks & final grades), and just keeping 37- 6, 7, and 8 year olds entertained...I am worn out! Spent the weekend with family and friends on a well earned little vacay. Started it off with my friend Dodie working on some wool on Saturday morning. We had a challenge to create a book cover to bring to our meeting and we created a nifty bookmark while there. I'm thinking of some variations of the bookmark for the holiday season.  Here is a photo of both...

Saturday afternoon I packed the dogs in the car and off to my son's home on the river for some R&R and fun. Spent the day with both my sons, their girlfriends, and friends playing on the jet skis and getting some sun.

On Sunday, my hubby returned from a rifle competition and joined us for some more fun on the water. The day started out lovely and then.....Beryl arrived!

We rode out the storm Sunday evening and Monday morning watching the trees sway and the rain fall (our view of the river). I packed up the dogs and headed home around lunch time to check out the homestead and discovered that my oldest son's fence blew down in his yard but no damage at our home. Finished report cards, laundry and I'm ready for the end of the school year countdown...7.5 days left.

Don't forget to enter my May give-away...drawing will be May 31st.       Darlene xxoo
