A Book Review: The Witches

The Witches is a book written by Roald Dahl about a boy and his grandma and the witches.  It all began when the boy's family is in a car crash and the boy's parents die, so the boy has to live with his grandma.  The grandma has to move to the boy's house. The boy once almost gets tricked by a witch. When they stay at a hotel for vacation the boy accidentally gets locked into a witch meeting.  When the witches find him they turn him into a mouse.  My favorite part is finding out what witches look like.  I would tell my friends to read it because it's my favorite book.

Something fun...

I actually was mentioned in a quilting magazine!

Back in 2009 I made a tutorial for for reusable produce bags.  Lisa eliminated the side strip of material for her version, but it is a little surreal to see her credit my blog for the inspiration for the project. 

Makes me want to try to go through the process for myself...I guess I'd have to think up something fun to sew first.  ;)

The Best First Day of School Ever

It always starts with a front door picture....

The first time getting to ride the bus to school (yes, I even took pictures in the rain!)

It was still raining too much for the "Mill Road" Sign photo, but I got one of her off the bus...this may be the last year she humors me...

Maggie missed Katie.  A lot.  It will be easier on her in a few weeks when she starts preschool.

More from the night before 2nd grade....

Katie, Maggie and Becky all cuddling Daddy...well when Maggie wasn't telling us that she "can't like a picture!" and when Becky could sit still...
