spring break

Today is the last day of spring break and then it is back to work and the upcoming testing season. My students have one week and then we will begin our SAT testing which is every morning for an entire weeks. It really wipes them out.
Spring break was a lot of fun. Tim, Chris, Aiden and I went to Gatlinburg for three nights. We had a wonderful time. Aiden loved Ripley's Aquarium and we all enjoyed Cade's Cove. Our last evening there, Tim took Chris to play miniature golf and I asked Aiden what he wanted to do. It was the Hollywood car museum.We had a lot of fun in it and Aiden loved the cars. His favorite was an indy car used in a Steve McQueen movie. My favorite was the batmobile used in the Michael Keeton batman movies.
Our house has also been enjoying March Madness. My Cats are looking good but we will have a real test with Indiana next week.
I have also been doing a bit of stitching and I have some pics to show my progress. I am almost finished with my current block of autumn at hawk run hollow, I have completed the borders for the March and April threadpack by little house needleworks, and I have one reindeer left to do on Santa's Night by prairie schooler. I am thinking of not putting the houses at the bottom of the chart and just adding a border to the piece at the bottom. I really don't like the gray houses.
I hope life is being great to everyone and thank you all for your lovely comments. Until we meet again, Enjoy spring and happy stitching!
