Here is some of the prep we are doing--
Our equipment being prepared to be loaded into our trailer
Some of the food for camp that's in my freezer..
...Every now and then I had to have the president of the yw tell me, "its going to be great! don't worry!" Usually I'm pretty chill, but I keep freaking myself out thinking "I'm in charge of the fun for 40 people-and what if camp isn't fun?!?!?" Now we are down to the wire, and all I can do is all I can do. Camp is next week, so hopefully I will have a good report when I come back!
We had a visit from 2 of the 3 grand-babies for 1 week. Of course their parents were with them...Bill and Jolena came out here for a family reunion on her side and to pick up Bill's jeep that he left here since last December. They drove it home to South Carolina over a period of 3 days. They are back safe and sound in Clemson, and I'm sure that all involved are happy to be home!
Here are a few pictures of the babies- I wanted to load a movie of Spencer after I gave him the Lorax quilt I mentioned in the previous blog, but I couldnt figure out how to do it, but believe me, he was happy-all he could do was dance all over the quilt! It was so adorable!
Spencer (and his dad) enjoyed the bubbles that Aunt Megan brought for him!
In the meantime, quilt-wise, I did finish the quilt for my sister to give as a gift to one of the doctors she works with:
my typical flannel back
I made a pillow out of a test block:
Which led to this quilt idea and I started tossing this together:
I saw a block very similar to this on someone's blog or on pinterest and loved it so I want to make a quilt with 9 blocks and these are some of the colors I want to put in it with a dark brown background:
Finally, the last two tidbits of news: first the boring one--I have been offered a job at the dental school as a team coordinator for the students-basically what I will do is what I do for our private practice-manage the patient flow and make sure that appointments are made to keep each student up to date meeting requirements for graduating from dental school, overseeing collection of money, just general office stuff. I accepted the job and start the day after I get home from YW camp! I hope I'm not too exhausted!
And the best tidbit of news of all: Vanessa is expecting a new baby in January! that means Donovan is going to have a baby sister or brother! We are all excited for the news!
until next time....ciao!!!
