I cannot believe the school year ended today. Now the crazy really sets in. Keeping 6 or 7 children busy and having fun. We're going to study the American Revolutionary War this summer which should be fun? I'm working on some things, knitting, sewing, and crocheting, to enter in the fair but they are either complete and I haven't got modeled shots yet (due to the models being in school) or they aren't quite finished. Next post. Fingers crossed. The scrapbooking is completely caught up, or rather was, until there was a t ball game, so there is more time for crafting. We do start our birthday season next week so we'll see.This is my Mom with 2 of her sisters. One older, one younger. One suffering from alzheimers. Three of my Mom's five siblings suffer from the dreaded mind robbing disease. As did her father. Her youngest sister died a few weeks ago at the young age of 69. She had alzheimer's. I firmly believe in my own mind that it robs the body as well. It was a hard memorial service but made me very thankful for my mom and that her mind is intact at almost 80. Sure she forgets things but don't we all. She has to have a list. So do I!
But the one that got the most attention for the end of the year is the sixth grader finishing elementary school and heading to junior high. This one made me tear up. I remember him in kindergarten just yesterday.
