    I feel that I need to tell you, that the first one is the hardest to send away to college, I cried all the way home to Ohio from
    Wisconsin. Only one of our six children was remotely close, but a two hour drive, none the less. We now have grandchildren in college, one is attending the University of Queensland in Australia. OK, truth be told, it gets a "little bit"
    easier after the first. I love your attitude, and making it fun is so important. I think that with Skype, e-mail and cell phones you can keep in touch with her, whenever you are needing to. That is what we do, I don't know how big your family is, but now that we have grown to number 26, I have started what we call the "Sunday News" I usually know what is going on in the different families. On Sunday, I condense it all into our news letter, they love it, and will reply
    with comments etc. We have found this really fun.

Blue Springs is a very pretty area and I loved walking the trails in the parks and around the lakes. However, I'm very glad to have them only an hour away now.
    KathyKat, Blue Springs is a nice area. I grew up in Kansas City, MO, so this was an easy move when I got married. But, I do agree with you that it is nice having our kids closer to home.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    Thanks kathdavis for the information. This is what I was going to suggest to my friend so now that I know it works, I will definitely tell her. Your shirts and such are great. I probably should show her your photos so she can see how nice they turned out. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions and to even include more photos. I sure do appreciate it.

    My daughter went to UCM when it was CMSU, great school. I love your shirts and for all the family. I live 9 miles from there and they have a great community around the school and she will enjoy her time there. Hope to see you in the Berg sometime. By the way our Quilt Guild in the Berg, will be hosting Patty K, E Burns sister again on Sept 5. Hope to see you there.
