Some sewing has been done

Wow, can't believe its been more than two weeks. A lot has happen in my side of the world. As you know Kevin went with Boy Scouts on a two week outing. They went to Yellowstone (site seeing), Glacier National Park (backpacking), Grand Teton (rafting) and Durango to the Bar-D restaurant (a tradition for this troop). Everyone arrived safe and sound, however my son and a few other came back with a bad cough. Kevin is recovering well.

We also went to Taos for the "zero" party. A family reunion on my mom side of the family. Any one who turns 10, 20, 50 or 100 gets money (bill wise to equal age) pinned on them. Brian will turn 20 this year, so relatives pinned 20 dollar bills on him. Matthew will be turning 10 so he got 10 dollar bills. Both boys made quite a bit of money.

Let's see what else: oh yes; Emily. Emily was in the Youth Aviation Club last week. She spent the week on the Air Force Base learning about Aviation. Last Thursday she got to fly a small air craft. Emily was up flying around Albuquerque for over an hour and an half. She went with her friend Caroline and her brother Joseph. These three did great. So glad they got to go. And the program was free. They learned a lot.

On Thursday they lady that ran the program let Matthew and I tag along. And because a girl did not show up and they had a spot open for flying, she asked Matthew if he wanted to go up and fly. He said yes and went up for about an hour, he also got to fly on his own.

Driving them to and from base was hectic, a lot of driving. I was also in pain and had some dental work done and landed up with nerve damage on a bottom molar. Went three times to get it fixed plus re-do the feeling they had put in, plus a new feeling plus my sinus's have been bothering. Feel better today.

Among all this I did get some sewing done. No pictures of the children's clothing yet, but fulled around with doll clothes. Love making it now just need to find a source to sell it.

Two aprons and one top.

This is the fabric the sewing club ladies saved for me, I need to get busy on these. Its mostly fall weather fabric.

My mom with my oldest son Brian and youngest son Matthew. (Kevin was on a Boy Scout outing and Emily did not want her picture taken at this time).

Well that's it for now. I need to get Brian to the Dr. his knees are bothering him, and Kevin needs more signatures for his Eagle project today.

Whew its been a long week

It started with Kevin and his driving lessons with a driving school in the area. This is him in the car he got to drive, he said he liked it better than my Dodge Durango :(. Oh well, I like my car.

Then, Kevin again, got ready over the weekend, packing for the Boy Scout trip to Yellowstone National Park (lucky, a place I would love to go to) instead we're paying for him to go for 2 weeks. They left Monday and should have gotten to Yellowstone last night. I won't hear from him till Friday or Saturday..

This is his last big trip with the troop, hopefully he will complete his Eagle Project soon. This guy is also a senior in high school. How did that happen.

I have also been trying to get paper work going for me to return to college. It has (is) a long process. Need to get my transcripts from NMSU where I got my Associate Degree a long, long time ago.

I also had sinus problems these past two weeks and now a tooth ache, going to the dentist tomorrow and pray this will a clear up. I have things to do.

At sewing club I was given a bag full of fabric. Yards not pieces. YEA!! I just need to be pain free and have energy to sew something up.

That's it.

We are back

We went to Taos over the weekend. My sister and her family were down from Amarillo, TX. So the whole family was together. While watching the fire work show the boys did some small ones for the kids. The kids enjoyed being with their cousins. The photo was taken with my cell phone that's why its small.

We also took a drive up the mountains. Up to Garcia Park and came down in Rio Chiquito. Emily and Matthew had a blast playing in the river. Sandwiches taste so good in the mountains.

Hope you all had a safe a wonderful 4th of July.
I also finished all the Boy Scout neckerchiefs and delivered them.
