Sewing and Other Things

My sewing machine is now working.  Yay!!!  Glenda, who goes to church with us, was my life saver in the realm of sewing.  She is now a part of my Bible Study and she stayed  a little longer yesterday to help me with my machine (which I now named Betsy).  She worked her magic and got it working.  It was the bobbin.

Darn bobbin.

The more I learn about sewing the more I realize that half the job is keeping your machine working properly.  So, Betsy and I will hopefully get very acquainted with each other in the next few weeks. 

Glenda learned just how little experience I have with sewing.  None, actually.  We were trying to figure out what my sewing class would be called because I wasn't even at the sewing 101 level.  Thankfully I can laugh at myself.

Otherwise, it's been a good week.  Having Peyton in the mornings has been a nice experience so far.  He loves our cat Samson.  They do legos together.  He can't get over how friendly Samson is and he made a point to go find him yesterday to say good-bye before he left for school. 

Our early  mornings are catching up to us though.  Dan and I were sooooo tired last night.  It was kind of funny.  I actually fell asleep on the couch after the kids got home, and Dan was falling asleep during our bedtime routine with the kids. 

Madelyn won a Kindle from the school for raising the most money for the Race for Education for grades 4-6.  She said she was shaking when she sat down.  She was so surprised to have won it.  That is seriously the best thing for my little reader.  I am so happy for her, and so thankful for all who gave money to TKA.  We really do love that school, and I think the cause is well worth the it.

My Bible study started again this week.  We are studying Philippians.  Soooooooo good.  Paul is so great.  I have more women doing the study this time, but there were only 3 of us yesterday.  We had great discussion though, such a blessing.

Okay, that's the latest here.  Happy day!!!
