Tiny Tuesday

Day two of school for the boy and the last free day for the girl.
This was him yesterday heading out to school.

After we dropped him off we headed out for a little bike ride. Then we headed to the bowling alley but they did not open until 11........ Em had seen a mail box in a magazine and wanted to make one so a quick trip to Joann's turned up a little crate with some flower buttons and stickers to decorate it. I have a feeling they will be playing mail man later today! Yes Mom, we got one for Aidan too with some dinosaurs.

Before we headed out I got a few minutes to sew up this block from The Civil War Diary book called Delayed Mail.

Since there is a mail theme today the kids got the mail this morning when we headed out to school. They got a card wishing them good luck in school this year from their Uncle Mike and Aunt Kathy. We also got a couple of Thank you cards in the mail. Today we need to send a few more birthday cards out - Grandma's is tomorrow and my sisters is next week. I guess it is a complete mail day today!

Wow! Kids off to school what a good feeling that used to be. School hasn't started here yet, but it won't be long now. The summer heat is finally arriving here, hope it leaves soon too! I always love the deep colors in the civil war era quilts.
