And the band played on...

So, are you wondering where I've been? Me too!

Honestly, this summer seems to have run away from me. With one daughter leaving for college and a second one entering the local High school, I just never caught up. For the first time in my adult life my garden was totally ignored.

One of the most rewarding jobs I've been obsessed with has been my new co-presidency for the Walt Whitman Marching Band Parents Association (whew, that's a mouthful!)

Emily, my 13 year old is a brand new member of the color guard at Walt Whitman. As you can see from some of the pictures, I'm pretty damn proud of her.

This is the whole color guard at the beginning of the show. Emily's always been the pip-squeek of our family but I guess she's taller than I realized (she's the 5th girl).

(That's Emily on the right)

Instead of sowing gardens all summer, I sewed flags, hemmed uniforms, made hair accessories and more. Hopefully now that the sewing part is done life here can get back to it's normal chaos.

Just look at all those flags on the ground! I'm working on a few more for promotional events and I'm going to take photos of the sewing process. It took me a long time to figure out how to make these flags and it was only with the help of one website that I finally got the technique down pat.

Happy Fall!
