Ahhhhhhh.....the cabin.



I am so blessed to have a refuge at a friend's cabin in Ely. Early one morning over Memorial Day Weekend, Cate got up early and took these photos... Can't you just feel the calm? It is so marvelous.


Thank goodness I had such a view to behold while I worked to sew in all of the ends on this sweet little pain in the butt to finish baby sweater. It is possibly the most poorly written pattern I have tried to follow, but the result is so very sweet. I'm blocking it now and I'll have to find some wonderful little buttons for it.


Thanks to Cate and Richard for planning the food, cooking it up, helping with the annual 'putting in the pump' ritual, reading, walking, laughing, driving, encouraging words when it was time to go 'jump in the lake' and listening to grumbling about trying to decipher a pattern. Absolutely the best company a girl could wish for in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Thank you!

Happy May Day!



So, our class organized these wonderful little May Day bouquets to deliver to every staff person at Maxfield. We did the actual assembly on Thursday. Our classroom looked like the back room of a florist's shop and smelled heavenly! We divided up all of the staff names and organized delivery with the two other Learning Center classrooms. It was a fantastic surprise for the staff! Again, thank YOU!
