Grandson #5 was born late Tuesday night! He weighed in at a whopping 5 lbs 5 oz and is 18 inches tall. I don't have any pics. He was born with special needs. It is going to be a real struggle for the family, but with lots of love and prayers everyone will adapt to the necessary changes.
Wednesday night the kids came to live with us. Boy has it been exciting, stressful, at times fun, and there have been a few tears. We will eventually settle into a routine, sooner than later I hope.
Thursday night was Quilt guild. Yes I actually left the house, even though DH was clinging to my leg begging me to not leave him alone with them....(just kidding, he loves being with the little gentlemen and there was only a tiny tear as I left). At guild we had a great speaker, her name is Nancy Clark McNally, she has had numerous quilts in Quilter's World, Fons & Porter, Quilty, and Quiltmaker as well as a series of videos- I will just say her trunk show was fabulous!
Guild has several groups, strips swaps, bag ladies, fat quarter swap, and friendship block. I shared the block for the month of January here for the friendship block group.
Today we settled into a bit of a routine. The boys will get signed up for school next week (I hope). We had part of the paperwork which was necessary, but we had one more form, and had to request it from the district and are waiting for them to send it to us. Anyway I decided that I would try to sew a bit today. I had a helper, and we made a boatload of leaders, he was having fun matching up lights, and darks for me. I did manage to get my zebra for the baby quilt finished.
Today is the littlest man's birthday. He is 3, so they went out to celebrate and have cake with his dad. DH and I have a wee bit of quiet time. I think this song suits the week we have had.
