My red flower was so fun to make I made a blue one to use as a gift. I bought a pack of 600 paper hexagons so all summer long I will be hexing here and there and everywhere. We will be in a million hotels.
Today this yummy fabric came in the mail...I have paper to match this too. My first set of movers come on Tuesday but then our fast shipment is being picked up until 12 July so I think I am going to keep my sewing machine out so I can have fun from now until then.
Steve leaves for Korea the first part of August and the kids and I will follow the middle of August.

We have been watching lots of soccer. Ben and Madi wore their World Cup shirts today...we went with German ones. Ben has made it very clear that the USA is his 1st favorite team though.

Those are Madi's stats. Steve and I were talking about them. When Madi is 9 years old she would have already lived at 3 stateside bases and 3 overseas bases....
- Scott AFB, IL
- Rhein Main AB, Germany
- Wiesbaden AAF, Germany
- Ft. McPherson, Georgia
- USAG Yongsan, Seoul, Korea
- Beale AFB, California
Now that is some record...she is going to be like me if she keeps it up. This next move will be my 9th move since marrying Steve 13 years ago but my 23rd in my whole life.
And since we have been in Georgia Madi has traveled to 9 states...Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Ohio and oh yeah DC...District of Columbia and the Bahamas. She is going to add at least 4 or 5 knew states to that list this summer before leaving Georgia...we have a real exciting trip planned for next month!!!
Today I went shopping at my local quilt store and Hobby Lobby to stock up on a few things before my packers come, so I have lots of fun crafty things planned while living in Korea. I am a little freaked over leaving the land of quilt stores, Hobby Lobby, Target, Walmart............
This really cute State fabric was one of the things I picked up today and it only took me 15 minutes to whip up this super sweet skirt for Madi...I just love it!

For Ben's level 4, the new strokes learned were the breaststroke which he mastered and the sidestroke which he needs to work at still. Also he started diving standing up rather than on the knee.
It's Friday and for our Friday night summer dinner we are having Greek salad with a new yummy looking summer dessert.

The back of the quilt is mostly white with some greens edges and then I used a brown for the binding.
Yesterday my kids had to go to their Pediatrician to get TB tests done in preparation for moving to Korea. Right before the Dr. came in Madi stated saying her belly hurt...I thought it's only because both kids are scared of the shot/TB test...even though Madi has type 1 diabetes and get 4-6 shots daily. Then last night at dinner my 52 inch, 52 lb. Madi couldn't eat and her belly still hurt. At 11 pm she started getting the runs and throwing up. It lasted all night and all day today. She hadn't eaten or had anything to drink since 3:30 yesterday afternoon...Madi has diabetes and that means other things start going the wrong way. Sure enough at 2pm today she finally peed so I was able to check her keytones....dang, large amount...first time ever. So I called Steve and then he called the Pediatric Endocrinologist so I could start packing overnight bags for both Madi and I. But we are still at home, still have large amount of keytones but she is now keeping a few chips and Gatorade down so hopefully we are on the up and up. I LOVE that team down at Emory University/Children's Hospital. They talk to you every hour trying to keep you at home and still confident at what you are doing. I am hoping for a full nights rest tonight. Tomorrow is Madi's birthday so she has to feel better right?!?

Our assignment was a birthday card...with the ultimate challenge being to add an office supply (paperclip, staple...) somewhere on the card. I did the birthday card but flopped on the challenge...I still like my cards though. This was our last month. I have my big move overseas and the other ladies were all for taking a break for a few months. I will be ready to go again in the fall for sure...I am dreading not having all my craft supplies...the Air Force takes 2 LONG MONTHS to ship our household goods to Korea.

Last weekend Steve's family came with bags and bags of birthday gifts for Ben and Madi. Of all the fun things, these pink flip flops with balloons tied on them my sister-in-law made are my favorite! Madi and I made the red and aqua.
The other day I got on my computer after the kids had been on there and noticed what the last google search was...see it by the Norton on the top left. hmmmm...I wonder who it was?

Our family spent Memorial Day down at Turner Field....Braves and Phillies with a Beach Boys concert to top it off. There was an abundance of patriotism at every turn. Look at this flag made of baseball hats. The Braves wore white hats...all MLB players did in honor of Memorial Day. Lots of decorated troops were honored on the field before and during the game. I think Ben and Madi felt what Memorial Day is for.
