Catching up on Wednesday

First up...I have to share with you my L*K exchange I received from April. It came on Monday and was a welcome surprise. I love it! The colors are beautiful - soft pink, purple, green and blues - perfect for spring and Mother's Day. I have put it in my kitchen, a place I spend a lot of time in with the family, for all to admire. Thank you very much April.

DH is in Atlanta today and tomorrow for interviews. While moving might not necessarily be our first choice as he looks for a new job, we are keeping an open mind. We both feel that life is an adventure and full of journeys. When we first met eachother we were attending college in St. Louis, MO (that was over 20 years ago). Since then, we have lived in New Orleans (south)...Minnesota (north)...and California (west) it would only make sense for us to move east. Well, we will see and just keep positive thoughts as we ride this job searching roller coaster together as a family.

In the meantime...things are going fine - still very busy with the boys' sporting activities. Monday and Tuesday evening I spent at the rink while the boys attended their hockey clinic. Today, Robert had a track meet and has one tomorrow as well. Track finishes up next week with the Chamipionship Invitational meet, which we hope he will be asked to run in. This weekend brings spring hockey team tryouts for both boys - Robert: for a team going to Minnesota next month and Matthew: for a team going to Los Angeles in June as well.
Regarding school...both boys are in the middle of state testing. They have less than a month of school, ending with graduation on June 13 (Matthew from elementary school and Robert from middle school). Hard to believe how quickly they grow up...speaking of growing up, Robert is attending the 8th grade school dance this Friday...and he has texted a girl to "go with him" even though they are just meeting eachother at the dance venue.

Regarding stitching...I am working on an exchange for the ornament swap. After this exchange, I will be back to Mary Wigham. And as soon as all the exchanges I have finished and sent out are received, I will be able to share some stitching photos with you. Should be soon!

Well...since I seem to be just rambling on, I will thank you for making it to the end and remind you to:
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

I love that May design. I have just completed my Lizzie Kate May one, not the same one though. Hope the job hunting goes well.

Very cute design you recieved.

I agree life is a journey, it is great that you have no qualms about picking up and moving if the need arises. Since I have meet my DH we have moved a total of 6 times Cleveland to L.A, L.A to Cleveland ,Cleveland to Denver, Denver to California, California to South Carolina, South Carolina to California

Fingers crossed that your husbands job search goes well.

Take care and have a great weekend!
