My little (younger is probably more accurate since he's 6') brother graduated from high school this past weekend. Crazy!!! He was in kindergarten at my graduation, and it doesn't feel like it's been that long since I graduated. We were always such good buddies when he was little, and it seems really off that he's now a grown-up going to college this fall. But, he's an awesome kid who really has grown up quite nicely and is heading off to the Y this fall.
For his graduation present, I get to indulge in one of my current favorite activities. Now, I'm still working on getting good at it, but I really enjoy quilting. I love the math and the geometry of it all, and I love seeing it all come together. Plus, I've been reinvigorated by this blog - crazymomquilts. She is quite the quilter, and I'm feeling inspired to try out some new ideas over the next while. Chad, on the other hand, is not so excited about the ensuing mess and expense. He loves me, though, so hopefully all will go well. And hopefully Mike's quilt goes well also.
