End of School and Wedding Quit

We got out of school June 7th.  The last few days of school are always super busy and tiring.  We sell calendars with photos taken by students to help fund this, along with grant money we sometimes get.   I did knit some dish rags on the bus rides!  Some of the highlights were visiting the Palouse Discovery Center in Pullman, WA, University of Idaho Ag field trip in Moscow, ID, Life Flight air ambulance in Lewiston, ID and we happened to see a helicopter take off for a call, Spalding Park and Museum and then an interactive morning at Tunnel Pond in Orofino, ID.  We had fishing, art, and water discovery activities. 

At Tunnel Pond I set up the art project and hauled tables and supplies down for it, but I assisted in the fishing activity.  I had a volunteer mom running the art project.  I have no problem putting worms on hooks and taking fish off hooks, but wow, it was busy and scary with kids from kindergarten to sixth grade have sharp hooks!   This is the art project, alcohol ink tiles to use as coasters.

We end the year with a sleepover at school and then a BBQ on the last short day. 

I have been busy with other activities and during this last week my husband turned 60, had friends over and I had to plant my garden!  I guess this is my excuse for not sewing!

I did finally start sewing on the wedding quilt I am making for my nephew and fiance.  I designed it in EQ7 and have all the stars made, but of course I can't show the design yet!  I hope to get the top done this week.  I am ignoring my long list of house projects to get done over the summer.
