The adventures of a quilter, who is also a high school teacher.

How did May get here so fast?

Seems that I just posted the last blog.   I can't believe how fast May came.  I always heard adults say " The year goes so fast." and never understood that until now.  As a 40 something year old woman I now understand what they were talking about.   May came in so quietly as I rushed around getting the students ready for this and that.  The girls collected 10 quilts for the Pregnancy Center.  

This is their display board from state competition.  They came in second and get to go to the National Conference to represent Florida FCCLA.  I was very proud since  this is their third year and they worked primarily by themselves.  In addition to the quilts they made over 250 puppets and did puppet shows for 172 kids. 

So perhaps the the older time passes so fast when we are older because we are so busy teaching the younger to fill a spot in the world in which they live.

Annie,

The organization is Family, Career, Community Leaders of America.  It was FHA/HERO about 20 years ago.  They are both juniors in high school, just turned 17.

It seems I'm asking myself that question about every month that passes.  As I write this I am wondering how I got to be 78 so fast.
