Quilt block swap and AWANAs

on May 22, 2008

I am doing another quilt block swap this year over at T2CHK message board.  I have done it now for three years and it’s alot of fun.  I still have to make the past two years blocks into a quilt 🙂  but I hope to get to that soon.  Here is the fabric I have choosen for my block:

The yellow has small yellow flowers/vines and the green has some small flowers with yellow in the center.

 

Last night was the awards banquet for AWANAs.  The girls did very good, both finishing their books and either starting their second or starting a workbook.  I am very proud of them both in how well they did.  Hannah got her book award and blue jewel for attendance and a ribbon for finishing her first book.  Bethanne recieved a lion attendance patch, her book award which is a tiny bear that velcros to the vest although I have no idea how 🙂  She also recieved Cubby of the Quarter and recieved a very nice plush toy book cover (I will have to take a picture later) and Cubby of the Year and recieved an engraved trophy, she is very excited about it.  I am glad for the break but looking forward to another year starting in September.

 

 

 

Hannah and I also enjoyed the Underground Railroad activity we did yesterday.  We were unable to take pictures because as I was told by a Naturalist, they didn’t have cameras in the 1800’s.  I’d like to go back soon and take pictures of the park though to share here.  Where we were was a busy area for the UGR.  We hiked for between 1 1/2 to 2 hours!!!  We then breaked for lunch and then looked at some things that slaves may have used, re-creations, and some copies of actual slave auction listing and articles about slave catching going on in the city where we were!  Very interesting and I am a history buff so right up my alley.  On the park property there was a log cabin built in 1814, no one can go in anymore as the roof is begining to cave in and the floors are no longer able to hold people.  Sad considering some restoration could restore it to it’s former glory and be able to pass history on to future generations.

    IT WAS VERY NEAT. I'D LIKE TO DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR ESPECIALLY SINCE WE WILL BE RE-STUDYING THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD AND SLAVERY. I ENJOY HISTORY ESPECIALLY CIVIL WAR ERA HISTORY.Edited by OhioSarah on May. 26, 2008 at 4:19 PM
