Well it happened again...that thing called LIFE!!!  Only this time it was a downpour!  March came in like a lion and left like a lion with the death of both of my maternal grandparents within 10 days.  My grandmother suffered a massive stroke on March 11 and passed on March 16th.  She had just turned 81 (March 3), relatively healthy, very outgoing and a talented quilter.  My family is blessed to have her gift of quilting to remember her and we know that we are wrapped in her love when we snuggle one of her quilts.  She made each of us numerous quilts, each one made with great thought as to our likes.  She made them for special occasions, like birthdays, weddings, graduations and births.  What a treasure!  My grandfather was 93!! He passed just 10 days after my grandma. What a love affair they had after being married for nearly 58 years. That is something to be proud of as this is becoming a rarity.

April has left me with 7 weeks left of the school year.  This year has flown by! We met the incoming kinders last week and I will be teaching the students who just aren't quite ready for the rigorous curriculum.  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time and I know I have a lot of prep work to get done over the summer.  I am really hoping to become a more avid blogger and maybe with my new class I will begin creating things for them! We will see...not making any promises!

We have a plant unit and a farm unit coming up and I think we will try to squeeze in butterflies too! I will try to take pictures and post what we are doing!

Happy Spring (and Friday the 13th!)
