AWOL Again!!

I am really not trying to be gone. I think of everybody here on these blogs as friends. I miss everybody. But you know how it is, our outside lives are more important. I was hoping to find a new balance once my DD#1 went back to college this fall but alas that was not meant to be. I not only had one daughter going but two!! Both my girls are away. Boy how hard that was to leave them behind. We went to Yellowstone while we were over on that side of the state. It is so beautiful!! I am amazed that something so dangerous can be so wonderful. Another life change for me is that I have gone back to school. It is a course through BYU-I where my daughters are going. I am taking the Pathway Program. It is all online except a weekly gathering with people like myself going through the program. This program is for a year, three consecutive semesters. When it is done I will be able to join BUY-I as a full time online student going for an Associates or Bachelor Degree. I am looking at getting an Associates Degree in Family History Research. Mostly I would be doing Family Histories. I love that area of study. I have been doing lots of homework but I am loving every minute of it. I am trying to find a way to do homework and then leave time for quilting. I have not been in my sewing room for over two weeks, except to finish up a block for Saturday Sampler. 


Enjoy some pictures of my sweet ladies and Yellowstone!!



  1. Family is always first and good for you in expanding your ventures.

  2. Hey, go for it. :D The ability to finish accredited degrees through online programs is wonderful. I'm getting ready to defend my history thesis after several years of back-to-school work through University of Nebraska's online access. Really enjoying being able to start quilting again after a couple months of intense writing!! Good luck to your young ladies for a nice school year!
