I'm still here!!

Hi everyone!
Sorry it has been such a long time between my posts. I have been busy with getting things ready for my class, getting the kids started in school and the regulary items like cross country and around the house. Last week we had something going on every single night, wow, were we tired!

The kids are back in school and are enjoying it. J says he's not, but I know he is. He is glad to have something to do during the day! T is really enjoying back and seeing all his friends. He is at the high school now and has had no problems moving up, but then again they go to a smaller school and he has been running with the CC team for 8 weeks now.

The obligatory first day of school picture

Today they had their first "meet" at New London. Both the boys ran well, and made their personal record. T ran in 22:04 and J ran in 13:46. The competition was tough and the boys JR high team came in 4th overall. T came in 16th in the boys open race, which was excellent!

The weather is a little rainy in the last few days, but it cleared up for the races today! Yesterday rained most of the day and tomorrow is only supposed to be 62! Yuck!!

My job is going well and I am really enjoying it. The kids are great and so is the staff. I love being with the little ones and am really excited for preschool to start! I have lots of great ideas for this year, and look forward to helping these little ones learn the colors, shapes, numbers etc!

Tomorrow I hope to finish another lap quilt and do some reading, along with getting the house clean and working on some lessons! Hopefully we will settle into a schedule and I will be able to blog regularly again!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Hi Sara, I am new to your blog and have scrolled down and enjoyed every bit! You are a busy lady and now that school has started, even busier it seems. I think you are a pre-school teacher? Is that right? Sounds like fun, but lots of work too! I am also a bookworm, just have to have a good book going! I have read all the Jennifer Cherverini quilt novels and loved all of them! I am now reading some of Sandra Dallas's books! Love them too! I also sew daily for about 4-5 hours...I am retired and it's so nice to be able to do that! Please come visit me at and become a follower as I have you. Good luck on scheduling and getting everyone started in school! Hugs, Mrs. Quilty
