Catching Up On Quilts and Life

August?  Really August??  That was the last time I wrote a blog entry?  I am not one of those bloggers who has a zillion followers.  I blog to record some of my personal history and every once in a while, I order a print copy of the blog.  I was trying to do this at least once a year.  I am a little behind. 

I think this catch up may come in two parts.  Let's start with September through December. School began and the DGDs were off to 4th and 6th grade.  Makayla is now in middle school at Julia Morgan School for Girls.  She seems to be thriving there.  She gave up piano for now but is enthusiastically enjoying rock climbing.  Violet, ever the busy one, plays viola, is doing track, and participating in a spring play.

No.  She didn't eat it.  It was her dad's order.

In August, Jon's family adopted a dog.  He is a mix breed terrier and the sweetest dog ever.  His name is Rudyard Kipling......Kip for short or Kipster, Kippers, KipKip.
