Greetings from Tornado Alley!

(...or maybe I should say "Salutations!" instead, since the boy and I finished up our very first chapter book together this past week, "Charlotte's Web". We've since set our sights on "Stuart Little" for our next novel.)

Yes, I live smack dab' in the middle of Tornado Alley. No, my house has not been hit from a tornado. But yes, we spent plenty of time in our basement this week going from tornado warning to tornado warning to tornado warning. Good times, I tell ya'.

Ah, the life of an Okie...

Anyway, just wanted to pop my head in here to tell you I am, indeed, still alive, but that I have been so swamped with projects that I haven't had a chance to post. Girls, I have been sewing! Sewing up my own little storm!

And planning. I've got a big project in the works this weekend, so you'll have to wait until next week to read the picture-filled posts telling of my many adventures.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend! It's gonna be a scorcher here -- bring on the summer!

Glad you are safe and well! It has been a really weird season for sure! Anxious to see what you have been working on. I have not had time to sew. Working on preparations for VBS crafts.

Can't wait to see all your creations!! I am scarred from all the tornado drills in school and going out in the hall and crouching by the lockers with our hands over our heads. Scarred. Give that boy a hug from me!! :)

We live in Kansas so we are right with you!
Ken's sister and fam live in Edmond-OK and they are always in their storm shelter.
Life on the plains ain't it grand?

Have a great day!

ha, some of my most vivid memories of growing up in Oklahoma were sitting in our cellar waiting for the storm to pass. You're just makin' memories with your little man! Looking forward to pics of your creations, you domestic diva you!

Britton has been asking to read Charlotte's Web - I haven't read it since I was little, so I'm looking forward to it as well! :) We are almost through Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and that's been a great one. I love that they are old enough to enjoy chapter books! :)
