Yesterday was our last day with our DS, DIL & Abby! Boo Hoo! I was surprised with an early Mother's Day gift. I received this darling flower pot (like a large tea cup) and some plants for it. It is so pretty! We are camping tonight and will be home tomorrow, so I brought it into the camper from the truck so we could enjoy it tonight.
We also went to the beach for a while yesterday so we could at least get our feet wet and walk in the sand a little. It started raining, so we didn't stay long.

Our son graduated with an Associates degree in Science in the nursing program. He actually still has 6 weeks of classes to finish up because the nursing program is on a slightly different schedule than the regular college semester. Then he will have to take the state board test to become a Registered Nurse and he has a job lined up where he has been working as a nurse intern. We are very proud of him!
Last October, my quilting guild had a "Trash to Treasure" program. You could bring a UFO that you didn't think you would ever finish and trade it for someone else's UFO. It is lots of fun! I don't remember what I took in, but I got a BOM that someone had almost finished. There were only 3 more blocks to make and the other 9 were in the bag. So, I decided to bring the last three on this trip in case I had a little time to finish them. It didn't take long and here they are. I think I'll probably make it up as a donation quilt, or maybe I will recycle it in this October's "Trash to Treasure" program. We can turn a UFO in that we received if we do something to make a little progress on the project. I guess it will depend on how busy I am with other things.
While it's hard to leave our family, it will be good to get home again. We'll be seeing them again in August.
