The last couple of weeks have been fairly stressful. We lost my father-in-law quite suddenly. Nathan did a wonderful job coordinating the funeral arrangements. He was much more diplomatic than I would have been. Because of this, our life has been a bit chaotic. Nathan had to finish a drill one night because of the funeral schedule and had to work for 21 1/2 hours straight. We had family in and out for various reasons and are just getting back to a normal schedule this week....except, I was sick last night and today the kids are both sick and stayed home from school. In spite of this I have got some things done. I picked up a top from the quilters. I call it my pond quilt. It is a traditional quilt pattern named "Jacob's Ladder"
On the family front, Iris participated in her first show choir competition. They won 1st place in the morning competition and won 2nd in the evening. The kids have to wear all matching make up and have their hair the same.
