We started our wonderful weekend with the first skating party of the school year. Since Keely went to a private kindergarten all of the school stuff is "firsts" for her. We had a blast and hope to get in lots more practice before the next one rolls around
Saturday morning I took a class at Quilted Memories to learn how to use a longarm quilting machine. It was so much fun and I am so excited to start practicing. I have rented some time Tuesday afternoon to do some practice pieces before I attempt an actual quilt. It's a whole new world opened up for me and I am so excited to be trying it out.
Donuts for breakfast Sunday and a day full of laughing commenced. I love the sound of children and am so blessed to have the cousins near for Keely to play with. Gary and I worry so over the fact that we will be raising her as an only child, but we are determined to give her as normal a life as possible given that her "mother and father" will not be a part of her growing up. One of the benefits is that "papa" is around a lot and that never happened when our kids were growing up. Being retired does have it's benefits!
