Time Flies

Time flies....sounds like obnoxious insects from Dr. Who. They suck up time when you are not looking. Once you look you can not see them, only the passage of time.

I can not believe how long it has been since I posted something here.  So much has happened...mostly good stuff at that.

Noah (#1, age 23; Ben #3, age 18; John #2, age 20)

My baby boy graduated from high school. He turned 18 yesterday. He will be attending St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM in the fall. I am envious of the adventure that awaits him, and look forward to hearing all about it when he comes home for the holidays.

My middle boy has made it to the starting line up for his college football team...provided his summer courses bring up his grade point average. He has worked so long and so hard for this dream. I hope and pray that it is all that he has dreamed it would be.

Maggi, Joshi, and Noah

My oldest boy is about to become engaged. Woah! When did he get old enough to do that?! We have met his sweet heart, and her little boy. I think they just might be a perfect match for my boy. Although, I must admit that it is hard to wrap my head around the idea of being an instant grandma. Good thing I have a year or so to manage it.

Although, as sweet as Maggi and Joshi are, I do not think that it will be a difficult task.

My quilting business is going gang busters. On average I have as many quilts to do each month as there are working days in the month. It is not hard work...but it does keep me moving.

Add to all of that a new kitten....

Hello there....don't you think you need to feed me.....NOW!  #burmesebaby
He is a sable burmese kitten, about 5 months old.

and several new Moda Bake Shop patterns in the works,... and it is no wonder the time flies have a hold of my universe.
