Last Friday of Freedom

The Phoenix Mercury are #1 in the Western Conference! Woo-Hoo! It's been about 7 years since we've been in the playoffs and I'm looking forward to basketball in September. Way to go ladies!! This photo shows our starting line up, (from left) Diana Turasi, Penny Taylor and Cappie Pondexter. Here is Baby K with an early birthday present. We're trying to encourage the musical abilities, but so far she mainly uses the mallet as a chew toy!

I have a quilting dilemma. My local guild does a round robin for charity, and the quilt they gave me to work on has simple framed squares. I started to do a freehand Baptist fan type design (which I have done before) but the first two squares came out really wobbly. I hate to spend the time ripping out, but it's a pretty bad example of my work! I sketched out a spiral flower that I will use instead. Not really a dilemma since I have a solution I suppose!

Monday I am going to school to get my keys and start setting up my classroom. I got a message this week that the District Office has revamped my curriculum, so I'll have to spend some time comparing what I did last year with the new plan. Minor headache...I really wanted to be able to go in and make copies of the worksheets so I'm ready for the whole first unit, but it looks like another year of only being a day ahead of the kids!
