    Back again!

    Hi all,

    I wanted to say 'hello' to everyone again! I started homeschooling my son this fall and we've been doing some roadschooling (a.ka. RV travel) so I haven't been on the board in a while.

    We are back in town for a few months and I'm hoping to do some quilting (especially Bonnie's Mystery)!

    Glad to see you all again!
    Kristi

    yes, welcome back.

    I have a funny story about homeschooling. On July 9, 1980 we picked up the two kids, brother and sister, mixed race, that we were promised in a private adoption. They had been in trouble in school and pleaded with us to homeschool them. I was qualified to do so, but really thought they'd be better off in a more structured environment. But I said ok, I would, but the rule was that they had to get on the bus and attend the first day of classes to get the paperwork all straight.

    But when they came home, they had decided to attend this new school and that they didn't need me to homeschool them. They did very well in this new school, which was in a different state. They won awards and excelled. They had us, and a much more stable environment than they had ever had. The school was ready and made them feel so welcome, they had new friends and I was happy for them.

    Hi Kristi! I wondered what happened to you
    Glad you're joining us for the Mystery. It's my first BH.

    Hello Kristi! I'm a more recent member just for the last two years or so. I used to be very active in on-line quilting around Y2K but then life sort of got in the way, and when I came back to the computer my old sites were mostly gone or changed to be unrecognizable and so I found Quilting Board.

    I don't usually do mystery quilts but I had fabric and an opening in my schedule, so will also be doing the Bonnie Hunter this year. I think you said you were thinking about Christmas colors? Come join us on the outside of the box fabrics, we need company. I have a bag of home dyed fabrics and will be using those, substituting neutral for bright school bus yellow. Yowza, it's going to be bright.

    Glad to have you back again, were you traveling anywhere in particular or with a theme in mind? When my son was little I was slipping in all sorts of education on trips so we would go see different types of caves for example, or I'd be pointing out how the trees were different species. And then of course there is just following nice weather... I'd like to do a little more of that than I currently do

    Hi! I am relatively new here but wanted to say I am a recently retired home school mom. We never did school in an RV but did do an international move! Both my kids are now graduated and are happily attending University. I am planning on doing the Bonnie Hunter quilt also but haven’t had a chance to purchase my fabric yet.
